Re: Rear Screen Wash

A search will yield the answer...
However likely to be goosed motor, bent pipe or even more likely nozzle come out of rear washer/wiper assembly. If your boot well is wet that will be the latter cause. It's a rear hatch panel off job, there are some good guides in "search"

Re: Rear Screen Wash

i actually had this problem early last month with my fronts and sprayed De-icer in them (as i had to do the windows). after about an hour it unblocked all the wee nosils which had never worked on the car since i got it.

Did the same with the back one and hey presto! i was a happy.

Re: Rear Screen Wash

I have suffered the famous 'hose popped-off' 'niggle'. Thankfully it was under warranty so delaer had to sort it. Think its a bit tricky to get the boot lid panel off without damaging the clips.

Re: Rear Screen Wash

More than likely the pipe has come loose.Just take the plastic cover off on the inside of the boot hatch,it has four screws securing it.Once off a quick visual check and you should be able to see a small black rubber pipe that should be connected to the rear of the wiper mechanism,if loose just reconnect.
