6th Generation VW GTI Rear Washer Nozzle Leaking

Manufactured beginning in 2010, the Volkswagen Golf mk6 GTI is a high-performance model of the standard Volkswagen Golf. The VW mk6 GTI has greater horsepower, sport-tuned suspension and improved interior features over the VW Golf standard model, with an iPod interface and a touchscreen navigation unit. One problem report by Volkswagen GTI owners is a leaking or dripping rear washer nozzle.

Your local Volkswagen repair expert is the best source of knowledge when dealing with any issue on your Volkswagen vehicle and a leaking rear washer nozzle is no exception. The problem is most frequently seen when the washer fluid reservoir is full, but can occur anytime, whether the car is housed inside a garage or kept out in the elements. The excessive cold can cause the nozzle to crack or split, and there is also the possibility of ice covering the nozzle and then making it break. One way to prevent this is to clear the nozzle of any ice during the winter, but do it very carefully. Do not use an ice scraper, use gloved hands or a soft towel.

The best thing to do though, is just get it fixed. Because in many cases, it is a manufacturer fault. In fact, Volkswagen has issued a Technical Service Bulletin specifically for this situation. Your local German auto import service specialist will be aware of the proper repair for your vehicle. He or she will be able to make the necessary repairs and return your vehicle to its proper working order.
