last week my windscreen washers stopped working, i could hear the pumps going, but no water.
so i bought some screenwash fluid, thinking it was because there was only water in there and it had frozen, or that the tank was just empty.
only managed to pour about 500ml into the tank, so i assumed it was just frozen.
now the temperature outside is better, you would expect the jets to work????? Nope....
so i booked it into the dealer, who this morning took 30 mins to tell me its because the screenwash had solidified and blocked the pump, and that they dont recommend using screenwash??
even though the manual says too, and ford are advertising a £20 winter check that includes topping up screen wash?
to give them credit the dealer didnt charge me to clean it out
anyone else come across this?

Seems very odd!!!!
You need screen wash in the washer fluid bottle. Water alone isn't sufficient to clean the screen, especially this time of year.
Admittedly using the wrong concentration *could* cause a problem but say what they did just doesn't seem right to me!
