Windscreen washer is spraying all over engine bay
Hi, I've been faffing about under those under-bonnet flaps as no water was going onto my windscreen when I activated the washer. I found that the shorter tube which goes to the nearside wiper wasn't connected, so I put it back on. When I tested it, next, there was a water stream shooting straight up which then dropped all over the engine bay. I didn't see where it was coming from exactly, but covered the area with a towel and tested again. There is water coming out of the wipers, but still this stream of water shooting out of the y-piece I think. I checked the tubing for worn edges and holes, they seem alright, however the y-piece has a hole in the center. This doesn't look like an accidental hole, so am I missing something? Should there be a cap or a pin of some sort over this hole?
