I have a 1.6 C3 Exclusive and when I turn on the rear washer water pours out of the inside/top of the boot. Think that there might be a blockage or a split/detached pipe. Can't see how to gain access to the pipework. Any ideas please?

Welcome to the forum mitzy67214
Think that there might be a blockage or a split/detached pipe.
Yes, damaged pipe, or its become detached, possibly a blocked washer jet?

Can't see how to gain access to the pipework. Any ideas please?
The plastic trim on the inside of the boot lid just pulls off. Try removing all the plastics to get a good view of the pipework.

This picture shows a clip, just pull the plastic away from the boot lid. If it refuses to budge, lever it with a screwdriver.

The picture also appears in theses posts, all relating to getting the boot plastics removed, but for different reasons.
