C5 Tourer 2009 rear washer.

Post by CassC5 »

My big baby called Frank has a small issue. Washers. They didn’t work on the test drive for some reason. When I went to the gas station, she needed filling. Almost 5 liters of washer solution stuff! Thirsty gurl…

Anyway, the fronts worked perfectly after that but the rear is steadfast. If I turn the ignition on and turn the stick thing to turn on the wiper and washer, only the wiper works. I can hear a small motor/pump doing its thing but no juicy come outta da back.

Ideas, thoughts, hammers? A suggestion would be appreciated before having to pay a garage twenty thousand units of currency to fix Frank’s dirty bum.

Open the tail gate and try again, normally the pipe from the body into the tailgate snaps....fix it with a --90degree-- pipe joiner if it has broken.

You were 100% correct. Now, where do I get one of these pipes?

You can buy generic washer pipe and fittings / elbows / joints from ebay or other motor factors - even Halfords
