Rear washer pipe fault

This weeks repairs are for the rear screen washer.
I activated it last week and was gutted to see water leaking from the C pillar trim.
Im guessing that the pipe has disconnected somewhere in the tailgate and needs reconnecting.

Can anybody advise me on how to remove the panel and interior trim from the tailgate. I can see two screws that need removing. Does the rest just clip on?

More likely that the pipe is broken where it goes through the rubber tube connected between the top of the tailgate and rear panel.

Yes.. undo the screws and then ease the panel off. The clips are those ridged "trim buttons" but they sit inside slots moulded to the trim.

If you're too rough and the plastic slightly brittle (age!) then you can snap the slot housing.. so be very careful as you do it. Lift one corner at a time and try to get as close to the buttons as possible, so you're not flexing the whole panel too much.
