    yeah it is

    It's a pretty common 'fault' especially in these conditions. Defo miniblade though..

    Hopefully it saved your motor

    try your local garage, they should hold stock of them.

    They're not miniblade one I don't think (well the ones I saw wern't)
    As above try a local motorfactor or garage.

    If you have to get by without screenwash for a day or so but need your window clean best to pour some hot/warm (not boiling) water on the screen and get the wipers on straight away before it has a change to freeze.

    yeah, mine have been frozen for the last 3 weeks or so. I could always hear the motor but no water would come through. But last few days there has been no noise at all. I switched one of fuses over and it worked a treat so will need to get one. thanks for your help guys

    try putting a tiny amount of antifreeze in the washer bottle, always works

    Next time, be very careful with it - if you can hear it but no water is coming through then immediately stop using it and wait a while until you think it will have thawed, the motor may damage itself. At some point you went to turn it on and the motor was frozen and it melted the fuse to protect the motor - at this point you should also have left it for a while in the hope that the motor will thaw out and work again. If you keep trying to use it then you are forcing something which doesn't want to be forced.

    Also get yourself some good screenwash.
