    Hi Dan sounds like the rear washer has split the joint in the pipe, think its in the boot behind the sub by the alarm siren

    there normally push joints and if your rear wiper wash part is rusting it looks for an easy point for the water to exit, most times its in the engine bay in the black trunking behind the battery, just happens to be an arse if its popped where yours has. You may need to drop the rear passenger boot side wall off to get to under the subwoofer and alarm unless you get lucky and find the joint. The other point will be the rear panel as behind there is the join for the disk player the hose joint may be there too.

    this happened in my girlfriends LCR and it turned out to be the seals in the doors, the ones behind the door cards.

    maybe you could take the door cards off and see if its wet inside the door, if it is you need to get some of this black stuff that TPS sells to put new on then it should stop leaking.

    I could be wrong but this is what it was in her LCR
