About Windshield Washer Pump Replacement
What does the windshield washer pump do? The washer pump is a small electrical component that takes the washer fluid from the reservoir and pushes it through the washer tubes to the nozzles, which then spray it onto your windshield to remove dirt and debris. As with any electrical component, your windshield washer pump can fail over time through normal wear and tear - and may need to be replaced. How do you know you need your washer pump replaced?
