All mine work bud, including Sophie's. However, took a bit of effort and a lot of cleaning, pressing and praying but i got there in the end. I found that the usual problem was that the out going pipe from the rear washer tank was usually blocked with crud and cleaning that well nearly always sorted the problem as long as the washer motor was working. Even got the TXD sorted after 5 years of ownership and it not working. Has worked well for the past 3 years.

it is on list of things to do on the tzd but mot is looming in a few weeks think i may have some welding to do, and some flexi brake pipes plus im sure some other bits so will do it all at same time. if i remove the rear washer jet annd disconnect the pipe at the motor, blow down the pipe from the rear would this clear the crap out the pipe? where does the rubber tubing run through the car its not somethin ive ever looked at?

Not sure about this but i reccon an air hose would do a lot better. Ive found that it was blocked at the washer tank end and cleaning this sorted the problem.
