window screen washers

The window screen jets on the drivers side stopped working ,on inspection taking the cover under the bonnet lid it seems that the pipe connecting to the jets has come off and I can't see the pipe that goes on the jet.
Anyone else had this problem?
Thanks in anticipation

Wave Window washers

Mine come apart regularly when we have a cold snap and the jets freeze. The pipe comes off. It happens so often i have left the plastic covers plates off. The pipes just disappears inside the bonnet cavity.
I ties the pipe to the jet with a piece of garden wire so they don't go missing.
Minor nuisance when you con to use jets on motorway.

Mine did this quite a lot over winter, probably because of a frozen jet...
Luckily my pipe didn't disappear into the bonnet so was easy to just clip back on. I put a dab of superglue on it just to hold it on, not come off since...

This happened to me a couple of weeks ago too.
I could also get hold of the pip and push it back on.
Noting the superglue solution. Will do this if it comes off again.
