    Hi. My 2008 e320 estates washers have stopped working and caused an MOT to fail.
    The pump is working ok and the water is pumping up to both jets. But nothing comes out of either jet! Its as if they have somehow shut down. Tried clearing the jets with the appropriate tool and also blowing through with an airline. Really got me puzzled. Any help greatly appreciated.

    No, just simple fluidic jets on a 211.

    Have you any idea why they would have stopped spraying when water is pumped well up to them?

    I have no idea. It’s as if they shut off. I don’t suppose the power to the jets could be a factor?
