The front windscreen washer pressure has dropped significantly and more on the N/S that the other. I tried topping up the washer fluid (not much needed) and tried the jets again and lots of washer fluid from under the car on the N/S. Guessing a split pipe somewhere? Is there an easy way to take off the plastic cover around the washer jets to check?

A common problem is the pipe coming away from the headlight washers. Think you can get to them underneath the car in that area without removing the liner or bumper.

Is the same pump used for the windscreen washers as the headlights? Do they only wash if you have the headlights on at the same time?

Different pump to windscreen washers.

Bi-xenon wash only when headlights are on when you press the tiny stalk button, or every 3(or is it 5?) washes of windscreen when lights are on and front control unit doesn't need a handover reset.

I prefer operation on the button, as it goes all over the front of the car just when you don't want it to
