Removed screen wash motor, when putting back it doesn't seem to sit correctly, water leaks and it feels loose. 


Should there be a rubber seal in the screen wash bottle where the motor sits? all pictures I've searched for do not seem to show anything on bottle or new motor? Nothing fell off and nothing is lying around. 


Have I missed something? have I lost something?


what started it was no water to rear washer, so checking if pipes are getting water to them, motor is sending water when pipes disconnected, but it isn't getting to the rear, disconnected that too.

Yeah you lost the little rubber filter that sits in the hole and makes it water tight... it probably is laying on the ground somewhere... find it pick it up put it in first than the motor... is an independent Volkswagen enthusiast website owned and operated by VerticalScope Inc.
