Lots of people on here have had problems at some point with their rear wiper.

The water pipe is prone to popping off and in my case the metal pipe

inside the motor that the water shoots through corroded.

I just got back from the stealers as I had to order a new motor

they also mentioned a 'support' bracked 1J0955665H ?1.63

so I got one of those not knowing exactly where it went.

It appears it's to fix the problem of the pipe coming off

as it locks onto the pipe on the motor and the water pipe.

Here it is.. I would recommend getting one if you

haven't had a problem yet.

It replaces the part that clips onto the rear wiper motor,

so the grey end goes in the water pipe and the black end clips onto the washer jet system.

Cool. Good work fella. Mine needs attention so will order this too.

Out of interest how much was the rear wiper motor. I believe its about ?70.

Got one of those bits today just in case. Will have to have a look when I get home even though I believe strongly that if it ain't broke, leave it the hell alone.

I've taken the bill home now but yes about ?70.

I ordered one from a VW Salvage place in Derby but when I took it apart

it was worse than the one on my car, all rusted up inside.

Got a full refund which was good.

Ive had this problem for a while, just cant afford to sort it out, been driving around trying not to use the rear washer!

I havent a clue how to get at it and see what the exact problem is! It seems to be leaking in the c-pillar, when i try to squirt water, so i dont know what the problem is!

sdesailly,this is caused by the washer pipe popping off the connection,this was quite a common problem with mkiv Golfs when i worked at the dealers. You need to remove the pillar trim(carefully),and you will be able to see the problem. Possibly you will require a new connector,i would fit one if it were mine,plus,trim a very short piece of pipe off(the bit thats come off the connector),and re assemble. We found that the most common cause for this fault was owners not using suitable/enough screen wash solution,resulting in the joint freezing up during winter! Hope this helps mate? Paul.

Red card for Pope1!! White beaches, sun all day long, cant really see the attraction!!

Dave

Hey Dave, I wish it really was like that. Don't know when I last went to the beach believe it or not. Last night's snow in the W. Mids was a bit of a shock to the system though [:O].

Just to let you know, it's a pain in the *** trying to fit this part

in the washer pipe. The pipe is too thick!!

I've tried heating it up in boiling water and melting it with a lighter

but no joy. I think I'm going to have to use another piece of pipe

to bridge the two pieces.

I also bought this piece as my washer pipe had come off but seems pretty difficult to fit - for the time being I just reconnected the pipe and I have not refitted the panel trim in case the pipe comes off again in winter. If you manage to fit it, could you please post a picture to this thread? Ta.

Just to confirm I have just attempted to fit this part with no joy. I just refitted the washer pipe as I found it with a cable-tie to help prevent it popping off. Mine is quite a tight fit anyway so I am not too worried about this happening
