  1. Rear Wiper & Washer

    I have a strange issue
    Both the front & rear Wipers weren't spraying water. So I filled the Wash Water tank in the front. Does this supply water only to the front wipers?:confused:

    Because, I am not able to make the rear Washer work:(
    Please suggest why this can happen & any suitable remedies!

    I feel it's faster to get an answer here than call TASS...:D

    Just look-out for any dripping water , just affter using the Washer .

    If , water is dripping , then maybe the rubber pipe may have become loose , just fix it back .

    Sekar, I had this issue right since delivery and got it rectified during first service as per RoyJ's input.

    The pipe for rear washer is disconnected somewhere near the reservoir. You will notice water near left front tyre if you try to use rear washer by pushing the wiper stalk away from you.

    Just a 2 min job at TASC. Hope this helps buddy.
  5. Thank you all, for the replies
    In fact, the front washer was also not working yesterday, after I had raised the question here. Will test the rubber pipes (It's quite possible that I opened the bonnet more than what it should be).

    Grande Punto :- Wiper Stalk broken

    Hi friends ,
    this is my first post here & joined the fiat team today(happy to know):).
    i own a grande punto 1.3 MJD nova bossa white. and got it in march 2011..:cool:

    the problem is with the Wiper stalk "while steering the wheel somehow my finger got in contact with the wiper stalk and the result was broken stalk:sadblue"

    been to pandit auto sangli for the replacement of stalk and ther came to know that there is no seperate stalk available and need to purchase the whole steering control set(comprises of odometer,blue & me & light control stalk) costing me 9500 INR,this is ridiculous i'm still fighting with fiat complaining about the kind off plastic been used.... (for time being i used some adhesives to stick it, electronically everyting works;) but for wiper control i cant i.e. no mechanical movement :sadblue)

    has anyone came across this situation or any ideas....;)

    thanks

    Unfortunate, but didn't you try to get it replaced under warranty?
    This is certainly unique issue been seen, I don't think anybody has faced this issue yet.

    Contact with Mr.Mangesh of FIAT & co-ordinate with him.

    Electronic item no warrantee ? :x Fight with bad TATA people.

    One of my friend got both ignition coil replaced of his Wagon-R in warrantee.
    IG coils are also electronic item.
    If Ignition coil can be warrantee claim then why not wiper stock ?

    What is the reason they gave, not to claim warranty or insurance?
    I feel it should be claimed.
