    Just a quick one, when i use my rear washer jet it dribbles out and hardly reaches the screen has anyone had this before ?

    Ive checked that the jet isnt blocked and there is plenty of water,could this be a kinked tube ?

    I had the exact same problem. Check out this thread by HTC. The cost of the repair kit was £21 ish from VAG Parts and was a doddle to fit.

    Have you checked to make sure it isn't spraying into the boot. The pipe comes off the sprayer. I had my boot sensor replaced 4 times because water had shorted it out.

    Is it coming out ok in the front jets? If not, run hot water throught eh system and spray. Some cheaper windscreen wash (or no fluid at all!) gets real thick after a while and starts to resemble jelly...
