    My washer pipe for the rear windscreen is split in the engine bay somewhere - it's leaking somewhere under the airfilter area. Does anyone know how I can get access to the pipe, or have any diagrams of how the pipe is routed from the washer pump to the rear windscreen?

    Thanks

    yes,just by the air filter there is some black truncking which is connected to the plenum chamber(this is where the plastic cover is that houses your washer jets).open the truncking and your washer pipe is inside.it has a push fit joint that continuosly comes apart,best thing to do is cut off this joint and replace it with 2 inches of rubber hose,cable tie at each end.

    Is that the bit which has a slight curve from the top to bottom, which looks as if it houses other pipes? I see some pipes or wires coming out from there which is also a bit wet - could be the answer!

    Thanks for that
