    As proposed by Redemption, based on my post, the forum is a great place to look for common issues with the MK2 in order to provide our service garages with an extra little checklist.
    May be handy to, perhaps post-discussion, post the issue in here with links to threads with resolutions.

    Disconnecting rear washer tube.

    The tube from the washer bottle to the sprays can disconnect in the engine bay (from the bottle) or in the boot lining on the driver side.

    Can leak into interior.

    ABS/ESP Light stuck on. This is a common fault across the VAG range and affects lots of models, not just the Leon. Info in the link below:-

    www.seatcupra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=234463

    There is also info here as well as a company that can repair the problem should Seat not be able to help or prove to be too expensive.

    www.sinspeed.co.uk/blog/volkswagen-...-brake-pressure-sender-sensor-switch-failure/

    I must say that I am not affiliated with them and have not used their services but the info on their site is useful.

    From what iv read and experienced the dogbone mount is weak and a common problem. A polybushed upgrade can be purchased from awesome-gti under THS3 torque mounts £68 delivered.

    Update on this. It is now a recognised issue. Seat should replace ALL FOUR injectors and the wiring loom FOC even if out of warranty.

    I don't know if this is of any help, but tomorrow SEAT are replacing the O/S Shock bearing mount under warranty, after I complained of a squeaking from the suspension.

    Also tomorrow my bonnet soundproofing is being done after the dealer said it couldn't be done through warranty, I showed him the TPI number off this thread and now he is more than happy to replace it under warranty :D

    Thanks seatcupra users!
