The problem is solved, it seems that in the past a new windscreen had been fitted and when it was done they trapped the heated washer wires against the bonnet hinge and over the years it wore the cable

 

I had a feeling it was something simple lol!   :)

well at least its all sorted now for you.

​just for reference   do you know what length and thickness of wire you used? 

just also wanted to know will this float sensor be ok for the job?

Great job fellas
I was worrying I might not be fit to get this mod sinch not having the original wiring so very happy now lol!

Does any of you know what the correct thickness of wire is to use and where the best place to earth to is?
Would it be handy just to run two wires from the float to the passenger side and connect one to the orange /black and then ground the other at the passenger side footwell?


I will have to get some of this gathered up now and get started on this little mod. I take it the float just goes into the bottle where there is an kind of circular mark?

I just had a look behind the passenger side kickplate and have spotted an orange and black wire in among the loom of wires. Is this the same on you wired to?

I think I only have it running into the top of the plug but it doesn't come out the bottom of it so I guess the float wire must Run from the washer bottle to this orange and black ?
