    Hi I have an 08 5 door and my rear washer is constantly blocking up like every other day! Using a pin to clear it but assume I've pushed the blockage into it.

    Any ideas how to solve the problem? The jets are brass.
    thanks

    Do a search as I'm sure there's a few threads on this problem that may help.

    But basically you should be able to pull the plastic casing around the squirter and bottom of wiper arm off. Then the jet itself you can just pull off too.
    Check water flows ok with jet off.
    Then leave jet soaking in some WD40 or similar, after that get a thin bit of wire (fuse wires quite good) and push right through jet and give it a good clean out. If really bad get a new jet from Audi.

    I had this issue. Got replacement jet for the stealers and shortly after the whole motor failed. After opening up the motor it seemed like the washer fluid was mixing with grease etc in the motor which was in turn blocking the jet.

    In the end i got a new motor with the suffix E part number from belfast audi delivered to my door. Search ebay, belfast audi sell through there and beat my local dealer price.
