    confused Rear washer interior pipe help/ideas

    Made a classic error and went ahead with a repair before consulting the forum, doohh.
    Had a problem with the rear washer not squirting. Pump was found to be ok after removal and a test in a jug. Decided it was down to a pipe blockage and thought I'd blast it clear with an airline off my scuba tank but neglected to remove the rear jet nozzle from the pipe so a rather big pressure build up occured. Well, water shot out ok after a while and I decided to give it one more blast when 'pop', something seperated in the the roof lining end and there was then no back pressure, I could even blow down it freely.
    Believe there is a joining bit there somewhere and suspect the pipe has come away (I hope so anyway else the pipe is split and bet that'll be bad news). It's looking now like a drop down of the roof lining for a repair. Just wondering if I can do this by just lowering the back end of the lining and if anyone else has had this pipe seperate.
    I've left the pipe off from the pump end else I'll have blue water squirting direct into the roof lining, can't be doing with anymore vectra water ingress problems, lol.
    Would be grateful of any ideas or thoughts.

    Talking Sorted

    Cheers leonvectrac,
    The pipe was indeed on the left hand side. Just had to drop the roof lining from the velcro tabs enough to see the base of the aerial, delve around for the other end of the pipe on the left hand side and rejoin it back together. Just glad I hadn't split the pipe, that would have been a nightmare. Thanks for your help, can see out the rear screen now.
