jito, You have a 2007 XLT

jito,

You have a 2007 XLT Suzuki? Well, before entering it in the Guinness Book Of World Records, post a link that will take us to a picture of it. :-)

All of us here would like to see because it doesn't exist (as a production) car that is.

Did you build it yourself? If so, then you have even a better reason to get it into the Guinness Book Of World Records. :-)

Tell us exactly what the problem is with the washer pump on your 2007 Suzuki "XL7". :-)

Ha, funny ! Problem is that

Ha, funny ! Problem is that it does exist . It is an extended version of the Grand Vitara !

The washer pumper is not working and I have not found any repair manuals for my XLT. I may have to buy one for a Grand Vitara .

It would be cool to be in the Guinness Book of Records though !

The process of removing the

The process of removing the windshield washer reservoir and pumps is really quite simple.

1) Get the car up on a jack-stand then remove the left front tire.
2) Remove the fender mud guard. (This is really simple, about 10 plastic pins need to be removed and then 1 10mm bolt. The plastic guard then just slips out.) This exposes the whole window washer reservoir, pump motors and water "out" sensor.
3) Remove as much fluid as you can from the reservoir. (I used a suction pump to remove as much as I could. This is just to keep the water from gushing out all over the place.)
4) Remove the filler tube from the reservoir. (You can ease this out by pressing each side with a screwdriver, keeping a gentle pressure on the filler tube as you remove it.)
5) Remove the 10 mm bolt at the back of the reservoir .
6) Remove the 10 mm nut on the engine side of the fender at the front of the reservoir.
7) The reservoir assembly now just slides out of the fender well.
8) Once the reservoir is out from under the fender you can remove the electrical connection if you want, but it is sort of a waste of time, since the motors/pumps can be removed separately, if needed.
9) The pumps now slip easily out of the reservoir.
10) Reassembly is simply reversing these steps. (Note: If your car is like mine you will have a bit of trouble replacing the 10mm bolt that holds the fender dust cover. You really have to push on that screw to make it mate with the matching nut in the fender. Fortunately, there is a screw head in the middle of the bolt that you can use a Phillips screwdriver to get this started.)

Jito, You said the pump is

Jito,

You said the pump is not working. Well what exactly does that mean? Is it coming on but not spraying any water, or is it not even coming on? The first thing is to check for blown fuses. The next thing is the pump is self priming. That means, that the water level in the reservoir has to be higher than where the pump is mounted on the reservoir, for the pump to work. The simplest thing to do, is to just fill the reservoir with water. Doesn't have to be washer fluid. Water is fine for now since it's summertime. Next thing is to access the wire connector at the pump. When you're there, remove the connector. Now jump the pump directly to the trucks battery. If the pump comes on, now reverse the jumper leads, and try it again. The reason for doing this is that the pump has to work in both directions. If it works in both directions, it's good. If it only works in one direction, you gotta replace it.

Jito, All the stuff mentioned

Jito,

All the stuff mentioned above may be needed but try opening the hood and placing your hand on the reservoir. With the key on and engine off you can then have someone else cycle the switch. Feel and listen for the pump. If it runs the lines and/or jets may be obstructed. Quite often it is the jets since they are so small. Sometimes you can unbend a staple and push it through the holes in the jets. Sounds like some shade tree crap but it works like a champ.

mws,

You question other posts about whether they are trying to help others and you support someone who is obviously (and check the posts in the last few hours) "wasting breath"? Do you still wonder why I don't believe anything comes free?
