    Sounds a daft question but im stuck honestly,

    My rear wiper spits water onto my tailgate when i try to clean the back window, so i pulled the black cap off the linkage and i imagined that there would be some sort of contraption that diverts the water on to the rear window, well this contraption isnt present on my car, any ideas would be appreciated.

    There should be a black plastic jet piece that pushes onto the washer pipe that comes out of the motor. This has two adjustable jets in it.

    If you are saying water comes out of the jets but doesn't hit the window then get a pin and move the jets so they hit the window. I've done this on my sport back as mine didn't hit the window, they do now though.

    Engine is perfect when warm, sometimes when warming up to 90'C it can be rougher than gandies foot, other times it's fine! I don't get it at all, after you'd altered the idle speed it was perfect when hot and cold 100% of the time but every now and then when warming up it has a funny turn. 90% of the time it is fine though.

    Any thoughts?
