Thanks for reply .I do not have sunroof . Draining holes under the wiper linkage are ok . Coolant stays where it should be - no leaks but rear washer does not work  :( . What else do I check ?

Have you checked for water in the wells under the front seats- especially passenger side? The washer pipe for the rear washer can separate at a joint and flood the passenger side well, alternatively if you have a water leak into the vehicle the water could be building up in the wells. Has the pollen filter been changed at all? If it's old and contaminated it could prevent proper airflow into the vehicle.

Yes there are signs of water being there ( under the seats ) . I have ordered pollen filter from ebay. I will get back to you  once filter will be changed and washer pipe fixed . Thanks

No it's behind the trim/kick plate. Remove the two screws that hold it to the side (front of foot-well) and then it pulls up and away to expose the wiring and pipe running down the side.

You cant link to things in the wip board mate, not least because access rights are limited for regular members.
