    rear window washer jet problem

    i have a problem with my rear window washer. water trickles out of it rather than jetting out. is it a blockage , pump or a nozzle problem? and how would i go about fixing it? also if i need to take the back light out could you tell me where the poppers for the interior trim are? and the best way of taking it off. i dont want to break any clips.

    thanks

    Hey Pro, sounds like you've got a blocked washer jet, this happened to mine and the dealer managed to fix it. I think you can just stick a small pin in the hole and wiggle it about to dislodge any crap that might be stuck in there. If that doesn't work, you may need to take it off and put it in some kind of cleaning solution to get it working. HTH

    next time you check your tyre pressures give the nozzle a blast of air ,might dis lodge any blockage.

    my rear jet seems pretty crap too.

    out of interest does the insignia have a fan style rear jet aswell as the fronts?
