Evora screen washers fixed

Just a quick update on my issue for the benefit of others with poor / no screen washer jets. 
After peeling back the front part of the wheel arch liner, you can see the bottle and the 2 pumps. The nearest pump is the screen wash one and was working fine. There is a short length of pipe from the pump to an inline non return valve and then another pipe from the valve to the screen. 

The small plastic non return valve was the problem - ie it wasnt letting any water through in either direction. Replaced it with one from local motor factors for £3.00 - et voilla - washers!

If it was left like this for some time with a faulty valve, then I would think that the motor would burn out soon as it cant shift the water anywhere. The pump is just a push fit into the bottle and easy to replace once you have peeled back the nsf wheel arch liner.

So the washers lasted about a month before the same problem re occurred - ie the jets would barely hit the screen.  I took the new non return valve off, went back to the original valve but ran a 3mm drill through it, so that it was effectively just a pipe connector and not a valve.  Works perfectly now!
