Exclamation rear windscreen washer (squirter)

the rear washer hasnt been working since ive had my cinq. today my cinq came back from being repaired so im happy, but i thought id do a few jobs on it like hammerite in the rust spots inside the boot.

anyways i had the bonnet open and tried the rear washer and the motor is working but i realised the washer water is squirting out of a pipe in the front of the bonnet through a little hole!! does anyone no what i mean? and how i can fix it?

cheers kris

Re: rear windscreen washer (squirter)

if you open the bonnet then look left at where you fill the water bottle up?

then theres two pipes comming out of there one of the pipes runs to the right across the front of the bonnet where the catch thingy is that holds the bonnet closed ???

Re: rear windscreen washer (squirter)

Its supposed to be attached to another pipe that goes to the back of the car. It should be attached to a small non return valve, so check out the inner wing on the offside.

Cheers

Re: rear windscreen washer (squirter)

Sounds like the pipe for the rear is burst somewhere, follow the pipes from the hole in the inner wing and find the leak and replace the pipe.

Mine has a little copperish pipe that came loose next to the passingers side headlight, thought it was spirting out a light lol.

Check that?

Hi, did you ever get this sorted, I think I know EXACTLY what you are talking about but I dont know how to fix, pumps for washers are working but there is a little valve thingy with a tiny hole in the rear washer pipe (just under the bonnet near the bottle) and when I press the stalk water shoots out of this and then just continues dripping-how did you get yours fixed?

Re: rear windscreen washer (squirter)

If the tube has a hole you need a scapel or razor blade and replacement hose, and additional non return valve, or back to back joining union.

The old hose needs to be cut carefully and a new bit inserted. The rubber of the old hose may be easy to damage. Use washing up liquid to more easily insert a union.
