    Crud has probably worked its way into the pipe. I had this problem and had to remove the jet to clean everything out.

    I found that the filter on the washer motor was knackered and all kinds was getting into it.

    How do I sort it? Don't even know where the motor is, do I need a new rear nozzle?

    Try pushing a pin in the nozzle to se if you can clear it.

    If you need to clean the filter, then there is a how2.

    Shove it fully in I did. If not, probably need a new jet

    Does the front one work ok? (just to rule out the motor/pump)
