Rear Wiper Wash

Again the rear wiper washer problem, so I fixed it but no spray from the pipe. I checked over and over again and found that the wash liquid is not reaching the wiper arm but leaking from the bottom of the car on the driver side. Is there any way to fix this pipe leakage?

Leaking from the engine bay or the back?

Sounds like it's leaking from the actual reservoir / pump, check the tube that comes out of the pump to make sure its all secure. Pipe tape might work or else it'll be pipe replacement; halfords sell generic or FIAT will do you the original pipework too.

Its not from the reservoir or pump or engine bay. Its leaking from somewhere from bottom, below the driver and back seat. I think there is a pipe joint somewhere in the body on the bottom of the car and I want to know how to access that area.

I think the pipe runs through the car under the carpet and rear seat.

Re: Rear Wiper Wash

your leak is coming from the releif valve, when the pipe is blocked the relief valve bleeds the pressure to prevent pump damage. the valve is located in the engine bay next to the fuse box cover, removing the cover and the water proof rubber lining behind it makes access easier. the valve is a black plastic parts which joins two pieces of pipe, one black and one white, the white pipe goes to the pump, the black goes to the rear washer. when you spray water and there is a blockage the water is released from this valve and finds its way down to the floor under the car making it difficult to locate. this is a common problem i've fixed a few times already. i would blow compressed air through the pipe (when its disconnected at both ends) and then remove the valve and replace it with a simple join pipe like you can buy at a pet shop for aquarium airpipe joining.
