    Default Rear windscreen washer problems

    No water is getting through to the rear window washer, is this common?

    Is it just likely to be a blockage?

    Cheers

    Normally a blockage mine was in the front near side wheel arch I cut the pipe as it went under the scuttle and replaced it with new pipe using a cheap joint from Halfrauds and then cleaned out the original pipe and refitted it with the joint piece no need to remove the arch liner that way. I cut it there so as to avoid removing the hadling and bits of internals and it worked for me.

    pull the washer jet out of the aeriel carefully and the remove the black pipe from the jet and get a little compressor the type you put in a 12v point and put the end down the pipe then remove the cap under the bonnet of the washer bottle then switch the compressor on and hey presto after a couple of minutes the water will overflow out of the bottle under the bonnet and the blockage has gone!!! i did that and it works a treat now!!
