Slight problem with my rear washer, on my 1999.5 Golf - The brass tube which
supplies the interconnection from the supply hose though the metal part that
holds the wiper in place and then to the point where water jets out has
This is one of those "the 10 cent part ruins the perfectly good 100 dollar
part" - this is usually the case with car parts :-(... sadly.
Anyhow the part is 168 dollars CND - the whole unit, I just need the little
brass tube and the plastic connector that the supply hose plugs in to - the
VW parts desk can see the part on their computer (Part 28 of the rear wiper
assembly) but it says "this is not a spare part" when you click on it... The
little plug (with the nozzle that makes the water into a high pressure
stream) that goes into this part is a spare part, and costs around 10
bucks - I lost my original when taking the wiper assembly apart.
If anyone knows someone who de-rear wipered a Golf or GTI in the MK4
generation, knows of a cheap online supplier, or something similar let me
know... I'm going to try the scrappers, but it's not looking good so far.
TIA - just gotta keep remembering "If you go to wash the rear window, you'll
flood the trunk with water" right now.
