Re: window washer

right.

open the boot and remove the plastic panel on the back of the lid.

(under the rear windon)

you should see the pipe . usually they just fall of the end.

i need to do mine at somepoint (when i can be bothered)

use a bit of glue or tape to keep it in place and secure

Re: window washer

yeh i have the same problem but with me i think its because i live in an area with really hard water (loads of limescale in it) it sometimes blocks the pipes up. So if you do remove the plastic panel and find the pipe IS attached then it could be because of this.

Hope this helps let me know how you get on i really need to unblock mine.
My cars getting MOT'd soon.

Do you lot not read????


The nozzle is built into the base unit of the rear wiper. Looking from the top you will see a small indentation with three or four holes, thats the nozzle.

Re: window washer

yeh sorry should have said it was there, just fixed mine, turns out he pipe had fallen out and the nozzle was blocked with calcium build up. What a stupid design from Fiat there!

Im so surprised the pipe isnt fixed properly into the nozzle, not exactly a smart design it has to be said!
