    Yeah, I know... There's loads of threads and I've searched and can't find one which describes my symptoms - I push the stalk backwards to run the rear wiper. There's a leak by the drivers side headlight, right by the washer bottle... But it's dripping DOWN onto the washer bottle if that makes sense...

    Sorry, being a newbie, the evap tank? Is that the charcoal canister that ticks all the time? How do you get to this three way join?

    Spot on Tony - the hose had actually come apart in two places (just by the washer bottle and in the trunking near the airbox), but it's back together again now and it works a treat!. Cheers for your help :)
