500L Rear Washer Pipe Issue

Hello I have an issue with a Fiat 500L rear washer pipe, its broken somewhere, when I try to use it water appears on below the drivers side wheel arch so its not broken near the windscreen as others have had, my question is it easy to fix where it is or is it really a garage job as I don't have a ramp or otherwise,thanks in advance

Had the same problem and local garage repaired it. The bill said "remove wheel arch lining and repair split pipe" . Apparently it split at a joint and all they did was snip off the split bit of pipe and reconnect.

Hi.
I am not sure you will find a 500l GUIDE.

But the grandepunto should be similar..

And my GUIDE in the misc. section covers the basics

Chances are the tank and pump are behind the wheelarch liner..

Not unusual for the hose to blow off the pump

No problem. Do let us know how it goes.

The 'L' section is sadly lacking in practical GUIDES and info.
