    Water leak in rear of a4 avant

    Today I got round to fitting my new rear wiper motor but have found that when I use the washers, water runs down the inside of the OSR trim panel on top of the amp, etc. There's also water dripping behind the osr wheel.

    Anyone come across this before and if so, what do I need to do? I suppose it'll be a full on stripdown but don't know where to start. Help!

    The pipe has come off for the wiper spray.

    Check where the pipe come through from the body of the car to the boot lid. It's a hard plastic pipe and repeated flexing cracks it.

    The pipe goes into the car inside a flexi rubber pipe alongside the hinge of the o/s. All appears dry.
