hi,

I have a problem with my c class on a 03 reg. The washer does'nt seem to come out from the drivers side and now that the water has finished it does'nt come up as a malfunction as it used to before??
When the tank is full the drivers side seems to just "spit" a little and then stop totally.
Please help as I hear this will fail on MOT.

If I were you, I'd disconnet the hose from the washer jet and see what happens then. You'll then know if the jet is blocked. or the pipe. If the latter work back ,
you mind find a kink or debris in the pipe.

Or the washer pump is blocked or has died...

Funnily enough my drivers side jet was blocked recently.. I used a pin and thoroughly cleared the hole. That worked in my case. But I did need to re-aim the nozzle as the jet went over the roof after it was prodded.

Blow them out with a compressed air line.--(any local garage can do this)

I had the same problem on my last C270 drivers side as well,replaced it in the end and the part was very cheap and easy to fit,will do the same on my latest one soon as that is a bit weak on the outside jet ,drivers side again.
