Espace IV Headlamp Washers - Not retracting

Anyone any ideas why the headlamp washer don't retact? If I give them a push they pop back in, spraying the water which is obviously trapped inside them as they go.

Can they be WD40'd?

You could try a few squirts of WD40 but it would be wise to check the reservoir ain't gunged up as the returning water pressure can't escape back.
The headlight washers are know to give problems and a repair kit is available from Renault. Repair involves removing the front bumper.
