    Hi Guys,
    It appears my rear washer has stopped working, or at least water is no longer getting to the jets. I'm guessing it is blocked, is it possible to remove the cover and clean it?
    Any advice would be much appreciated before I go pulling things apart!
    Cheers

    You can try in blocking the holes with a pin.
    Or from behind with an airline if you have access.

    But have a search, as there is a common fault where pipe breaks I think, and leaks into boot, eventually breaking wiper motor.

    First thing to do is take the cover off and pop the water sprayer off the wiper assembly. Then try squirting water with it off. If it shoots out then the water sprayer is blocker and you can unblock it with a pin. If there's no jet of water then start looking for water leaks from under the inner boot liner/inside the boot when you spray.
