Rear Window wash not working

Having got my brava on friday I had a working window rear window wash. found out when I took it for a test run earlier in the week it wasnt working and that the pipe had come loose (did look for it as said on bravo guide) but as of yesterday it stopped working agian, but this time no water being sprayed inside the boot area. took the rear cover off and the pipe was still on. looks like some form of a blockage?
anyone had this problem before?

(This makes a change from the sensor fault on the stilo back in august ;) )

nope, but you could disconnect the pipe from the resevoir and use compressor to unblock it, unlikely that it's blocked though.

Problems intermitently coming and going now. And definetly not a blocked pipe in the boot.
So I had a look about the car wondering where I could stick the autochanger cabling when I came to bringing the rear seats down and opening up the bench when I spotted drops of water all along the bit between the seat and where the boot starts, from left to right. looks like ive got a faulty rear washer hose and its escaping into the cabin at that point now [:(!]

having more looks at the car, there isnt any more water appearing where it did, guessing that may of just been dampness as a one off (well it had better be!) but the stop and start nature is still there.
But one thing is it only stops working after the car has been sitting and posibly sitting on road with a slight slant downwards
