    Although the rear windscreen wiper works the washer does not spray water onto the rear windscreen. I can hear the motor working when I operate the washer control lever arm on the steering column but no water comes out. The front windscreen wipers and washers work fine. How can I get access to the rear washer/wiper to check hose connection to it is fine (can't see any water leaks to indicate hose connection has come away). Have poked a needle into what I think is the rear windscreen washer nozzle (two holes at base of wiper arm) to see if nozzles are blocked but without any success.
    Any ideas what to do further to try and get the washer to work.

    Many thanks

    Do you smell screenwash in the car? Is there a stain/ damp patch on the headlining near the back neext to the hatch? Golfs have a connection there which also comes loose (remove trim around headlining and drop headlining slightly to get to pipe)
