Fiat tipo window washers

hi all. Can someone please tell me the route that the braided looking washer hose from the right hand side pump as you look at it goes to?
The car is a 1900TD L Reg.
The hose just seems to drop down and has no pipe attached to it so as soon as i add water is goes all over the floor.

Re: Fiat tipo window washers

Hi,
If it's anything like the Tipo washer tanks I've seen, with the single pump mounted vertically, you will probably find that the hose broke clean off the pump and there is now not a lot you can do about it.

By the way, the pump is supposed to have two hoses coming out, on opposite sides. It's an absurd design - a pump that runs one way for the front windscreen and the other way for the rear... why, I ask?

I'm going to suggest that my friend converts to an Uno washer bag instead (two pumps) as they never fail :-)

-Alex
