    How do i remove rear washer jet

    Hi i have a MK5 astra with the jet mounted in the brake light, how does the jet come out, i've tried sticking something in the hole and prise it out but to no good. I'm hoping i don't have to remove the actual light as it looks a pain.

    the rear wsher jet should pry out, but you do need to remove the light to get to the pipe etc.

    Use a very thin blade, protect the paintwork and push under the brakelight, to remove it.
    There are four metal clips that hold the unit in place, I only had to push the lower ones to remove the light.
    Disconnect the electrics.
    Use some warm/hot water to soften the washer supply pipe and gently remove.
    The jet can be removed from the light unit, use warm/hot water again to help, it sort of comes up and out.
    Any more problems mark277239@hotmail.co.uk , I could sen you a couple of pictures.
    Best of luck.

    Sorted it today was easier than i thought, i uncliped the plastic cover from inside and released the clips and the light came out easy, unblocked the nozzle and it's back to normal.
