rear washer jet feed pipe

can anyone tell me where the washer jet pipe feeds through the car for the rear jet? i have de wipered my rear, no longer need the jet and have an issue with the washer motor valve so the rear jet leaks when i use the fronts. i have used silicone to block the jet holes so this dosnt happen, but have had an issue with the spare tyre well flooding. i think it may be a leak from the jet feed pipe as i cant see any evidence of a leaky seal, but not sure as i dont know where the pipe goes to reach the jet. i was thinking of just removing the pipe and blocking it off from the motor valve to stop this (if it is the issue).

Re: rear washer jet feed pipe

just pull off the pipe from the one way valve under your bonnet, its on the right hand side, usually. that way no water will deffinatly be getting down the hose to the rear of the car.

Re: rear washer jet feed pipe

Was hoping for the route of the feed as to find out if it is infact the jet feed that's leaking and if there is any problems arrising from it. If its not I know ill need to search harder but can rule out something.

Re: rear washer jet feed pipe

To disconnect it - i'd take it straight off the Washer Pump itself - it'll have a Nozzle - one front one for rear

pick you luck - pull one out and see what happens

Re: rear washer jet feed pipe

nah. never bothered as had more important things to deal with. just blocked up the jet holes which sorted the leak. the spare tyre well was flooding b4 then, but cant see any signs of where it coming from, hense trying to locate the pipe route to see if it is the problem. if it is, then i can just disconnect, if not i will just leave it as it is for now and will have to look at other options.

Re: rear washer jet feed pipe

Washer pipe is taped into the interior harness, but it runs up the N/S rear pillar IIRC. TBH you're better off tracing the pipes from the pump, then disconnecting them at the join (just by the engine bay fusebox, i think) and capping the hose from the pump there.
