    Rear washer leaking at front of car

    I had a search but couldn’t find an answer to this specific leak. The washer still sprays (eventually) but most of the water seems to be leaking somewhere around the N/S/F wheel.

    Has anyone got an idea of what I should be looking for and how easy it is to get to before I venture out into the cold one evening with my tools?

    Yes. a simple fix for this and a common problem. What you need to do is take out the airbox and then remove the cover for the wiring that leads up to the scuttle panel from the chassis leg. inside this cover there is the pipe for the rear washer. It has a joint on that has popped off and needs to be clipped back in. I also used some special clips to prevent it happening again. If you use a jubilee clip then make sure you wrap it well in case it chaffs through the wiring later on.
    Is this is all clear ?

    Yep, Mo is spot on. Happened to me twice. Ended up aralditing the pipes together which seems to have worked.
