    From experience this is due to the rear wash wipe leaking inside the hatch. It leaks onto the latch mechanism and causes a couple of problems namely that of the alarm playing up...

    I found out tonight that my rear wash wipe has totally gone and the water just pumps inside the hatch, need to get it sorted asap before things start playing up/rotting....

    Actually, this shouldnt cost you any money, well maybe a couple of quid!

    If you search on www.uk-mkivs.net for something along the lines of 'leaking rear wash wipe' then you will find a link to one of the users web site with a how-to on how to fix it.

    I think from memory the fix is simply to buy some washer jet hose, a t-piece and some jublilee clips, oh and i seem to remember soldering a small piece of copper pipe as well...
