    Hi,

    Today, I noticed that my windscreen water hose has been cut. It could be due to Rat or due to other reasons. Damaged area is highlighted (in green circle) in the below image.

    This makes the water bleed inside engine bay. Two methods to fix this issue.

    1. Cut into pieces and re-connect thru adapters.
    I enquired Auto spare parts shop and they have only 'T' pipe to connect the hose. Not sure whether I could get 180 degree adapters.

    2. Replace the entire hose.
    can't be done by DIY ?. Anybody did replace the hose or have tips to replace ?..

    Please share your thoughts.

    This part should be available at the service center and should cost around 200 bucks. Recently TFIan got this fixed at FASS.

    But before just replacing the pipe, ascertain what caused it, so that you can ensure the cause is fix and not just the pipe.

    Checked now and the water flow is good. It is a simple DIY...
