Edwin is being very taciturn in his description of the problem. Such as year, kms., when wiper and washer last worked properly, etc.

Maybe a brief trouble-shooting response is warranted, but I am not sure that check fuse is it.

The (rear) washer and wiper are protected by different fuses so unlikely that both blew together.

More likely that the switch on the steering column stalk is the problem as activation of the wiper is one position and washer is just one detent further.

No I didn't mean it that way - just trying to make a point that first time posters really need to give some more background to their problem if they expect help.

I quite agree with you that the obvious things should be checked first.

But we don't know what he has already checked, or if he is up to troubleshooting with a multi-meter, so may not get too many responses here.

Might even be one of those where taking it to the dealership is best and least costly in the end.
