Headlamp Washers getting stuck in out position - any way to fix?

Recommended Posts

The headlamp washers on my IS300 keep staying in the out position - I hardly use them but they seem to be also affecting the windscreen washers. Can they be fixed?

If I need to replace does anyone know the part numbers? Thanks

I have no idea what retracts them back to the 'home' position but it can only be a spring or some other mechanism. Maybe the spring has become detached, or more likely is that whatever sort of mechanism it is, needs to be lubricated.

It’s a Lexus so nothing simple here, they use “Actuators” which pop up the nozzle then return it after use.

Personally I would remove them and give them a soak in soapy water and clean them because the units are £270.00 each! Part numbers are 85208-53030 for the left side and 85207-53030 for right side.

I cannot see any electrical connections on them and I think they use water pressure to operate, it’s got to be worth seeing if  leaning the crud/moss out will restore them.

If the valves aren’t shutting completely your windscreen washer pressure will also be down as they normally all feed off the same pump.

Thanks for the advice - I will try removing, cleaning and lubing them and see if that helps!
