Front windscreen washer leak

Post by Craig5790 » Sat Sep 05, 2020 2:31 pm

I've had two front washer pumps fail in 3 years.

Within the first year of owning my 1.4 tfsi Q2 Sport the front washer pump developed a leak and was shortly replaced under warranty.

Two years on and my front washer has been leaking again. The garage checked it out during a service and told me the culprit is the front pump (again!).

Unfortunately both the car and part warranty have passed so I am paying Audi £180 to replace.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has had problems with their washer pumps leaking?

To fail twice is so unusual that you might want to trace the fault down the line to see what's causing it. Not easy, I admit, but two pump failures is really odd.
