I've noticed a mark under the tailgate.
I'm 100% sure it is being caused by the rear washer pipe.

How have other people got around this issue?
On the later RS I'm sure they have modified the hard pipe.

Is it possible to change to the new flexible pipe or will it include taking the roof lining down?

Cheers Gareth.

I've seen it on some ST
Haven't had the chance to look at any RS.

But I'm sure mine isn't the only one.

Spoke to a friend that has a 10 plate RS and he said he has the same flexi pipe as the wiring loom on the tailgate.

I had stuck a protective felt pad on as I noticed this happen a few months after I bought it.

Has anyone change this rear washer jet pipe to the 2010 spec?

As I'm sure the 2010 spec RS has the same as the loom flexi?

If someone has I'm wondering how easy it was to do?

Think I'll pop into my local ford parts and see if they have one in stock.

LUX2 is the only one with 2 flexis as it needs the extra space for the reversing camera cable.

Council spec and LUX1 have one flexi and one standard.

Mine has this too! Sorry for being dense, but what is helicopter tape and where do I buy it?
Helicopter tape (anti fret tape as it is also known) is a thin but durable clear tape that would usually be used on the edge of pannels of an aircraft as a sacrificial layer. Metal - GRP To prevent fretting

Maybe have a little browse on the web.
