    Default Rear wiper jet issue

    Hi

    Having a problem with the rear washer jet in the fact that it doesnt work, I assume it's the same pump for the front wipers as the back, the front works fine.

    I've put s small pin into the hole of the jet to clear any blockage but it didn't go in very far, wondering if there is a blockage in the pipe somewhere. How would I remove the wiper jet from the roof to inspect and clean out? If I need to remove the roof lining how would I do that?

    Thanks

    Do you have enough water in the washers? I think that if there isn't a certain amount then the rear one won't work, only the fronts.

    Thanks, yes there is plenty of water in there, when you try the back washer jet the front jets 'dribble' slightly.

    Could anyone confirm if there is one or two pumps please?

    Sounds like a blockage somewhere, I think we've all had the same problem at one point during the winter,but now,i'd defo say a blockage.

    still havent got round to doing this yet, but I went and had another look this morning while sorting something else out, topped water right up in the bottle, wiggles a pin in the jet hole and tried it, squirted a small amount out then nothing.

    I couldnt find the filter in the bottle how do I clean this is it underneath?

    Front jets still working
