    hi if a car was never fitted with washers when it was new it doesnt have to have them fitted so my mot tester told me when i first motd my edsel i had. but if it did have them when it left the factory it must have them and they must work.

    If a car has a fixed screen it does need washers, even if it didn't have them as new, it's one of the few things that doesn't have an age cut off.

    As those above I've got away with a squeezy bottle in the past, or you could take out the screen for the test - you don't need washers or wipers then!

    If it's an opening screen, or you can see over it, then you don't need washers or wipers.
