:) After numerous attemts to solve the problem of poor screen wash power I have finally sussed it. There is a "Y" one way connector valve where the washer pipe branches to the 2 jets. The rubber diaphram inside was too weak for the spring and was sticking. After removing it there is enough power to wash the next 3 cars behind.
I cannot see the need for it to be one way so if anyone does please let me know.
Hope this helps

It is there to stop the water siphoning back into the tank, I doubt if this would be too expensive to buy from a dealer.

Same here, it's just a y-piece now.;)
No problems, just takes slightly longer for the water to come out first time you use the jets....

That's why it's there, it's supposed to mean the water flow starts immediately, however, the empty hoses mean they don't freeze in winter.
