    Was pulled up on a recent service.

    The rear screen washer on my car isnt working.

    I can hear the motor when i push the stalk in so that fine. So must be tube come off somewhere or a blockage.

    Anyone know the route or got any tips?

    Thanks

    Yeah remove the wiper & the jet plastic tube, then try it & see if the water trickles out, also remove the rear door panel, take of the pipe & see if water comes out there, then you know its from that location onwards to the screen jet.

    Try a thin pin or needle in the two jets, usually blocked and will be your answer if your boot floor isn't wet - boot floor wet and you've got a leak.

    My wifes A4 had a similar problem.

    I tried it parked up and my 4 yr old son shouted "Dad, the car's bleeding...". Turned out to be a joint had popped out up inside the front wheel arch. Pain in the bottom since you have to remove the liner first.

    Stopped working a few months again, and expected to have to do the same. This time I still checked the jets first, and they were blocked. 2 mins to fix this time, result.

    Good luck.
