Rear screen wash on Sportbrake

Recommended Posts

The spray action on my 2015 Sportbrake has recently stopped working.  I can hear the pump working but there is no water going onto the screen.

I can't find where the water comes from for the rear wiper.  Is it incorporated into the rear wiper arm ?

The front wash works perfectly so there is sufficient liquid in the bottle.

 

Any guidance would be appreciated.  Thanks

Hi Ian,

No, unlike the front washers, the screen wash comes from a nozzle under the roof spoiler, not from the wiper arm.

Hi Dom, thanks for your reply.    I had just found the nozzle under the roof spoiler !    I'm hoping its just a blocked nozzle as it might be quite a job to trace the water tube run.

Hi Ian,

I just had my Sportbrake at the dealers for a faulty wiring loom, meaning the sensors and rear camera were out, all fixed now but the loan car they gave me was a 2018 Sporbrake R Sport.

I can honestly say that our version is nicer, I'm not saying it wasn't nice but it just wasn't as nice as mine, our version feels more refined, I think when it comes time to trade in I will go for an XJ or I-Pace.

Which model do you have? Mine is Portfolio spec, in Saphire Black and I had it re-mapped so now 250bhp, 2.2ltr.

Enjoy.

Dom

Hi Dom,  

I agree - the later models are not as nice in my opinion. I don't think the trim is as good quality as the earlier models.

Mine is 2.2d (200) Premium Luxury in midnight blue.

Yes, I'd like an I-Pace, but they are going to have to be cheaper than £63 k for me to be interested !!

Regards

Ian
