Does anyone know if the defective rear washer pipe connectors have been modified on late Gen 3 Macans.
I know quite a few owners had a water leak in the freezing weather last winter leading to remedial work at the dealers.
My car was registered 07/23 and I'm wondering if I need to be concerned.

🤫, let’s hope we don’t see anymore cases this winter, I wouldn’t bet on it though.

I did a quick tentative stab this morning once the frost had been melted and it worked fine, but the temperature was only -2C.

Just ensure you have a decent concentration of antifreeze screenwash in the washer bottle.

Well, I had -20 deg C washer fluid in mine this time last year and it still happened and upon inspection today, it looks like it’s happened again. FFS !!

If rear washer or camera wash not working, check rear passenger footwell carpet for dampness, ie; washer fluid.,
