My front wipers failed to spray water on the screen yesterday.

At the dealership today who advised the tube had worn away to make a hole in the pipe. Wonder how long the replacement pipe might last and if they will need to come up with an alteration in design or pipe run.

Have wondered about the reliability of the washer system. Wondering if a little smeear of silicon grease on the tubing might be a good idea?

I agree and I think its a potential weak point.

The pipe is similar to that used on the original C4 headlamp washers which were prone to splitting and failing. I guess keeping topped up with good quality screen wash at a high concentration (especially through winter) will help along with frequent use to ensure clear lines and flushed through. That said the pipe does seem a bit 'exposed'.

The other thing I wondered is how much (and availability) the replacement blades will be when the time comes... :?

Mine seems to have failed today after only two months :(
EDIT: it turns out in my case it was user error. You need to pull the stick toward you and hold it for a second or two. I was just flicking it in out briefly like I did on my old car. :oops:
