    Corsa B 1.4 5dr - Wiper Stalk Confusion!

    Hi all,

    Im currently confused by the wiper system in my car.

    The wiper stalk currently works as follows :-

    Down = off
    Up one = intermittent
    Up two = wiper speed one
    up three = wiper speed two

    Now the confusing bit :-

    Pull the stalk towards yourself & front wipers work & rear screen jet works!!

    Push stalk towards dash & front jets work along with the rear wipe!!

    Is this an esay fix as every car I have owned has had the front wash/wipe working
    in the same stalk position.

    Im hoping that a plug has been inserted in the wrong way.

    Advice appreciated

    I doubt it's the plug - I'd check the wiring, make sure someone hasn't crossed something over.

    Sounds like someone has replaced the washer pump and put the tubes on the wrong sides.

    Thanks guys, hopefully an easy fix.
    Never thought of checking pipework

    Will report back my findings.
