Fixed my washer jets.

Front washer jets were totally useless, almost as if it was out of screenwash. Topped it up and still rubbish.

Disconnected the pipe at the drivers side wing, tested it pointing the hose away from the car and a good 5-6 foot jet of water, no problems there then.

So removed the screws for the scuttle panel to have a look at the piping, lifted the scuttle slightly and immediately could see the pipe was under the plastic and was discoloured and flattened where it had been clamped down between the two surfaces. Moved the pipe into the recess void and screwed the scuttle back down and hey presto all working properly again.

Guess it either has been like that from new or had some warranty work where the scuttle panel has been removed and replaced and in doing so trapping the water pipe.

With a problem like that maybe that's why the previous owner sold it!

Who knows but it is also possible the screen has been replaced and that's when it got trapped it could not have been like it from new. Even complete idiots could not drive a car for 3 years without the washer jets working properly surely lol
