    Rear wiper wash issue

    Hi all,

    Just a quick one. My rear wiper wash has stopped working. I can hear the pump when pushing the stalk but no water comes out. I suspect a hose has split or blown off whilst I tried to use it and the water was frozen. However I tried to check for leaks or puddles and can't find anything. Any idea where the hose runs for the rear screen wipe, r what the problem could be?

    Thanks

    I had same prob, I think mine was blocked up. Audi replaced the rear washer jet assembly during my last service. Job done! Think it was about 4-5 quid! If you need a part number let me know and i will check the receipt.

    Same here, I had this a yr ago could hear the pump but nothing would come out. Tried the pin idea etc but nothing happened so I took it to audi and they replaced it under warranty. Not had problems since but use it more often than I otherwise would just to avoid it getting blocked (in case that was the problem last time).

    If it wasn't under warranty think audi would have charged 25 for the job (recall seeing something close to that number on a receipt/invoice I signed)

    Its the cold weather blocking it up, I had this fixed twice now @dealer under warranty and think its doing the same thing again.... I wouldn't bother doing anything unless your car is going to delear for some work or something as the same problem will keep occuring in this weather. Wait till summer if its still F'd then sort it out...
