    Hi,

    Hope you guys can help me out. My rear washer stopped working a few weeks ago & I thought it would be the pipe that had fallen off the washer pump. (1999 1.9 TDI)

    Took the tailgate apart and it as dry as a bone. Checked the connection at the front (engine bay) and thats all ok.
    Then I noticed that water is leaking from the rear (left) wheel arch. Had a look in the cubby hole and it feels wet in there but cant find any pipes. There is a white box (with a green lid) in that area behind the woofer, but that doesn't seem to have anything to do with it.

    Any ideas where the pipe I'm looking for is & how I get to it by removing as little as possible?

    Thanks.

    Found it.

    Its behind the carpet behind the CD autochanger, strange place to put a connection.

    Yes, and it's a bastard to get at as well, isn't it. I gaffer taped mine together.
