    If you shine a torch up into the hole you will see a clip on the washer jet which holds it onto the car body work, you need a small flat bladed screw driver to push the clip in so the washer slides out.



    Vauxhall have released a revised washer jet which clips in better, it's only around ?2.50 from your dealer so worth replacing.



    Cheers thanks

    What an absolute sod they are to get out....managed it eventually, cleaned up, small bead of silicone round it and refit, fingers crossed it stops the leak

    Hmm, the rear washer in my replacement decided to start leaking in a couple of weeks ago, so i whipped the washer out, cleaned round it and siliconed it and put it back.....leaking again!, so did it all again, used more silicone, put it back and it's still doing it, what the actual f*ck is going on? could it be gettng in through between the seal and the body of the washer rather than between the seal and the car body?



    and does anyone have the part number for the modified washer?



    Thanks

    I don't think so, as its just water.

    I got the new washer the other day all sorted it clips at the front and rear rather than the sides



    Sounds alot better.

    I've just collected my new revised fitment rear washer jet and managed to get it fitted inbetween the rain....lets see if it sorts the leak.



    I have to say it didnt feel as if it fitted very tightly, but it doesnt move around like old one did.

    Good stuff Andy



    I would also advise anyone who has a leak at the moment and is about to sort it, or anyone who has just sorted it, to remove the side trims where the parcel shelf hangers clip onto, as they have bits inside that fill with the water that leaks in and cause the car to steam up (i was surprised how much came out of them when i took mine off).....I'm also going to remove the carpeted trim where the hatch handle is as that will be damp inside too....when i work out how to get it off.

    Yeah I thought that too mate but the seal is much more "attached" to the car



    I haven't had a leak at all yet, despite the recent grim weather



    All seems ok with mine too, 3 days of heavy rain and no drip inside the car
