Windscreen washers

Post by Robmason » Thu Aug 04, 2022 10:00 am

For those who have wipers fitted to your Triking:

Do you also fit washers? I can't see any obvious ones fitted in the various photos

If not, how do you manage the annual UK MOT?

Thanks

Rob

Hi Rob

You'll need washers for the MOT. I've done mine with an electric pump and long hose to a nozzle on the bonnet. The long hose enables you to lift the bonnet up and detach the hose from the nozzle - it's a plastic hose so easily pushed on and off. I set mine some distance along the bonnet as I used a single fitting with two outlets. Close up below to show the nozzle on my old Triking.

Definitely fit washers.
When you get sprayed with road filth you will need them.
I fitted a generic electric unit with 2 nozzles. Switched on the dash with 2 position switch. Wiper, wash/wipe.

Thanks for the tips. I was thinking of using "on arm" washers but the ones slightly angled under the wiper arm look a good solution. Fortunately I have nearly 3 years until the first MOT!

You may well need them well before the mot is due :idea:
