View Full Version : Please Help Front Washer pipe broken

27-12-2010, 12:45 PM
I have a 2006 Jetta.

Since the cold weather my windscreen washer had stopped working - at first thought it was because it may be frozen.

lifted the bonnet and on closer inspection the plastic black pipe has sheered in 2. (maybe burst due tothe ice).

Any suggestions as to weather this could be repaired, or does it need to be replaced?
(btw pump is fine as it sprays water straight though the break.

Many thanks

If it has sheared in the corrugated section it is a git to repair. I fill the corrugations with RTV black silicon and let it go off over night. Then I use some 5-mm flexible fuel hose with a slither of RTV on the corrugated pipe to help it slide on.
