    Posted: 06-Jan-2011 at 19:14
When I originally got my car the spray pattern for the rear wiper was just a vertical line of water in the center of tailgate glass. Recently the squirter stopped working and I found that the nozzle had moved such that the water was just squirting into the shroud over the wiper lock nut. When I adjusted everything something weird happened. Now the squirter follows the wiper blade as it moves across the glass.

Which pattern is on your waggie?

Common problem across all VW's of our vintage with rear hatch wipers. You can get a rebuild kit; the work is a bit of a pain.

Nice link Scott. I had no idea that this was a problem. Thanks for the info.

BTW, www.1stvwparts.com has the kit for $65.
