    Hi guys,

    Basically i fitted a new irmscher spoiler tonight and i had to replace the rear windscreen washer nipple with the 1 supplied in the package. Without thinking, just after i removed the existing 1 i lifted up the boot and the tube dissapeared through the hole and it doesn't seem that theres anyway i can thread it back through.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for threading the hose back through or opening the box where it is located inside the tailgate where you open the boot?

    Any help/response would be much appreciated!

    Get some plastic cord (like from a garden strimmer) and feed it through. Tie to the end of the pipe and pull it back through.
    Will be fiddly, but should do the job

    so the hose is now lost inside the main body of the car - not between the car body and the tailgate? i take it the water jet is at the top of the window?
    if it has disapeared into the car, it will be under the headlinning id imagine, you might have to pull this down enough for you to get a hand in and rethread it back through the hole
