confused Mondeo washers

Hello all(?),got a little problem with my Mondeo Mk2 washers.
The rear washer jets work fine but there is nothing coming out of the front ones,I've checked that all the pipes are connected to the bottom of the washer bottle - which they are - but still no joy...
If anyone could give me some help it'd be very much appreciated.
Thanks,
Kwozzii

Hi kwozzi .Does it have two washer bottle systems or does both front and rear work off same system. Is there two different bottles to fill up with water.

OK that means the pump is working ok if the back washers are going. This means there is probably a blockage in the pipe to the front ones or the little nozzles that squirt onto the screen are blocked. Probably the easiest way to check will be to take off the pipe where it enters the windscreen nozzle then try them. If water comes out of the pipe then it is the nozzle that is blocked and if not then there is likely to be some obstruction in the pipe. Hope this helps.

Do you have to remove it Kwozzi to check the nozzles/pipes as they should be accessible for repairs without the need for that I would think. Be better not to remove it if poss.
