Mmmmmm.. Ye.. My washer jets haven't been working for about a month now & the symtoms are - My pipe leading to the bonnet from the bulk head is clear.. and when i try the leaver for bout 5 seconds u hear the pump (as normal) then look under and at the back of the engine (maybe even the bulk head) washer jet fluid is pizzing out.. Hmmmmm Any tips, hints & tricks? common problem? anyone know how i can diy the thing?

Sounds like a cut/crack in pipe/hose.Follow its route and find it...Surprising some insulating tape wound really thick around it will normally do the trick if you cant get new pipe or a connector junction.Might help to cut both edges "flat" with a blade...

Hmmmmmm Silly thing realli.. all it turned out to be was the little valve in the line from the washer motor to the bonnet - it faces at the battery & is easily visible.. plz consider looking for this lil'bugger b4 u do what i did & pull out my wheel arch & wire wall etc etc.. lolz.. its next to your bonnet strut.. i replaced mine with a piece of copper that luckily was a snug fit - bugger off am i waiting for fiat to sort their crap out - its impossible for me to get anything out of them!!

This would be the non return valve which can be blocked up from crappy water from the filling station water cans.
