    i have a Vauxhall astra 1999 (T)reg my front wiper spray works but back
    spray dont work but the wiper arm works after having a close looks it
    seems (i think ) that the pipe to spray is split or has come off
    because after looking in the boot at rear inside light its wet so looks
    like its split but would like to know is it easy to fix or do i need to
    take part of the inside roof off or can it come off from the outside
    from roof (spray/arial) all in one unit

    Check that the pump is running when you are trying to use the rear washer.
    With the ignition on you should hear it buzzing under the bonnet when you
    activate the rear washer. My "R" Corsa had the same sort of thing, little
    then no water coming out of the washer nozzle. I do not know if your washer
    is on the tailgate or the aerial base [I had a Calibra and it was in the
    aerial base]. The Corsa's was on the tailgate and the pipe had broken where
    it passes through a rubber tube/grommet from the body to the tailgate. I
    was able to undo one end of this pipe from the body work and ease the washer
    tube out of the car body enough to get to the split which I placed a bit of
    stiff plastic tubing in each end of the plastic washer hose.
