Rear wiper water not squirting water on my 147.
My rear wiper is not squirting any water. The wiper works and you can hear the water pump when trying to wash the rear window - but no water comes out.
I lifted the bonnet the other day and found a small plastic object rattling in the water collection bay (where the front wipers are). It looks like the letter T in shape, and is hollow inside, like a 3-way tube. It is approx 3cm in length. I have a photo but don't know how to post it!?
I had also noticed that there are 3 lugs missing that hold the bonnet cover on (on the underside of the bonnet). They are the 3 uppermost lugs nearest the wipers). I assume that the plastic piece had fallen from the vacinity of the front washer squirters. I hope this makes sense.
Anyone know if all this is related?
Is this piece shown in the workshop manual?
Has someone had the same problem with the rear wash/wipe?
I can post pics if someone tells me how!
