Question about 1996 Volkswagen Golf
I looked in the trunk and found nothing. Is there an extra place under the hood that i must fill? I found one of course its the windshield- i can hear the pump but working for the back window- nothing comes out-
The front and rear washer use the same reservoir and the same pump. Volkswagen reverses the polarity to spin the pump in opposite directions depending on whether you want the front or the rear to spray.

If it is not a problem with the fuses then the window wiper motor may have given up. It should be very easy to find one from a scrap yard (cheap as well) and they are easy to replace as long as you have a couple of spanners.
Make sure you check that the fuses haven't blown first!
Hope this helps a bit, let me know if you need any further info.

You have to clamp the flexible break hose with the appropriate tool that will not damage hose so that no pressure can go back up the break line when then piston is wound back.You crack the bleed nipple just enough that it only flows out when the pressure from the piston being wound back in pushes it out.Once piston is all the way back in retighten the bleed nipple,reassemble caliper etc and bleed.The reason you vent off fluid this way is not to put back pressure on the ABS,Bleeding the brakes is easier and the worst of the fluid(most stressed)is evacuated from the brake lines.Last thing top up the master cylinder with exactly the same fluid that is in the vehicle.Mixing fluids can be hazardous in respect of the ABS and seals throughout the brake system.When winding your pistons take special care as the pistons wind back in in opposite directions.

SOURCE: overheating problem
water pump. water pump. water pump. i am a vw dealer tech and on 2.0 and 1.8t beetles the water pump impeller is plastic, and what happens is usually another component, fans, fan control module (under battery tray), thermostat, fails and because the impeller is plastic with just one overheat the plastic becomes brittle and shatters, pull the water pump out and you will see the impeller in 3 or 4 pieces. replace water pump and make sure t stat opens, fans come on (a/c off) and proper water pump flow.

the washer pipe will have blown appart.this happens if you opperate the rear washer when it is frozen.it will either be off in the tailgate usually when this happens there is water around the catch when you open the tailgate.or in the headlining in the left rear,have a feel and see if the headlining is wet.to avoid this reoccuring use a good screenwash with frost protection.
