Hi, tryed this function the other day and all i can hear is the motor for the screenwash trying to send water to the rear wiper, but its not working. I dont see any leaks on the headliner (very clean) and no water in the boot, anyone else come across this before?

mine is so disabled that it cant dribble. Maybe something is blocking the water travelling through the tube. How can i sort it out?

on the left hand side of the hinged end of the boot, looks like coiled rubber.

Yeah check that, because that's where mine was snapped. Got some new tubing from Halfrauds, took about 10 minutes, worked a charm!

Of course it doesn't work anymore.... as I have no rear wiper!!

Got the same thing going on with mine. Reckon the hose is disconnected at the tank-thingy (apols because I don't know the right words), because the fluid spews out at the front.

How do I access the tank to see what's going on? Looks like a bumper-off job, but I'm no expert.

I have sorted this now! What I did was stick a pin in the jet holes which helped a little bit, then lifted the cap and poked the pin in the hole several times! then put the cap back and its perfect.!

p.s if you want to annoy the driver beind lift the cap of and the jet will squirt on his car (does it quite well lol)
