[A4] Headlight Washer system

I had trouble with mine a couple years ago.  I have a 99, same body
style as your 98.  The washer turrets were hanging up on the bumper when
they retracted so I had my local dealer look into it.  After they did
that, they no longer worked at all.  I discovered they broke a T fitting
in the feed line for the headlight washers and blamed it on my fog light
installation.  Classy place.  Anyway, I replaced that fitting with
something from the hardware store and it's been working for 4 years.

The washer turrets telescope via hydraulic pressure.  So, if fluid is
getting to them, they should telescope.  If there is no fluid getting to
them, obviously, you need to find out where it's going.  Mine was
pouring out into the belly pan from that broken fitting.

Don't know if that helps or not.

Has anyone had any problems with the headlight washer system?  Mine
working a while ago and I just noticed it.  The pump is good.  I pulled
cover off the double relay that controls the windshield/headlight pumps
manually closed the headlight washer relay and the pump worked.  The
windshield washer/intermitent delay works fine but no luck with the
headlight portion even with the headlights on.
