Porsche Crest Rear hatch wash system

Hi guys, I have a question, has anyone had any luck fitting a washer to the rear screen?

I was thinking of using a combined bee-sting antenna (968 type) from a Vauxhall (GM) Astra (not sure of the US equivalent) - these have an adjustable washer jet on the back that can spray down onto the hatch. The angle looks about right, has anyone done anything similar?

The Vauxhall Astra was available here as the Saturn Astra.

Just bought a suitable bee-sting antenna from fleabay. Will write up the mod as it gets done. Might be of use to someone out there. Why Porsche didnt put a wash system on the hatch is anybodys guess...

This sound like a really neat mod... who says you cant make it better than the factory. I cant wait to see what this turns out like. Would love to incorporate a pulse button on the rear wiper switch so that it kinda takes on a factory OEM look.
