    Probably the washer pipe has split where it hinges and the fluid has got into the motor.

    The last one i stripped and cleaned up , but the one before had knackered the circuit board and im sure it was over £150 to replace
    i would pull it and have a look first its easy enough todo .

    I think I might just leave my washer jet broken then as if I fix it then it might ruin my circuit board!

    Cheers mate for the idea :D

    Mine had the pipe off near the motor, so had water inside the rear panel, so just check for any wet area's. Had to strip the back panel off to get to it, then pretty straight forward from there apart from the water had wrecked the contact pins, so had to re-route/ make new.
