Got bad news for you. The early SW's rear wipers didn't spray up in an arc, they are suposed to spray straight up with out moving. Due to the design of the washer going through the middle of the wiper arm if the pivot centre wasn't kept lubed then the washer would sieze and start to arc spray. Eventually the piping gets tired of moving around and starts to crack and not spray as much because of reduced pressure. Unfortunatly the only real cure for this is to replace the entire rear wiper motor assmbly. Motor expensive, labour about 0.80 hour.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
