    Hi Guys,

    My B6 Avant has a limp rear washer! It use to spurt out very well, but now is a bit limp.

    No sign of breakage as no condensation inside or leaking out the boot when you open it....

    Motor seems to work well and the front washers are fine!

    Where do i start, any ideas?

    Take the little cover off the wiper arm & you will see the jet, this just pulls out, maybe just needs cleaning out. There are 2 jet outlets in the nozzle!

    I had to do mine last week as it stopped all together. I just blew the airline down it at work to clear it, and now it works better than it ever has.

    Thanks all - don't think the second nozzle has ever worked, given them both a good clean out and then spent 20mins trying to get the direction of the things right! Now working a treat...never even knew that that piece under the cap came off! Thanks guys!
