Default V60 removing the washer bottle

I have a large leak coming from the pipework in front of the washer bottle, I have removed the inner arch liner and checked all the pipework exiting the pumps and after filling and using the washer function, it seems to be coming from in front of the tank.
I have tried to see how to remove it but after reading an old post, the last entry said they got a dealer to do it as it requires the front bumper to be removed to gain access.
Does anyone have experience of removing the tank themselves? Not a good time of year for stripping the front of the car off just to replace a piece of pipe!

I have removed the front undertray and have managed to find the leak, it looks like it has been chafing and has two small jets coming out next to each other. I have ran out of light and feeling in my fingers so will resume tomorrow but will somehow have to cut and join it, hoping I will be able to cut it and join it somehow or I will have a right job on to replace the full length.

I decided it was better not to cut the pipe as it is not the usual rubber but a stiff pipe so I cleaned it thoroughly with IPA and sealed it with an epoxy resin two pack. I left it until this evening to fully cure and it is now dark so not yet sure it has worked. However I can get no water to the front or rear wipers, only the headlight washers work
I even tried a wet and dry vacuum cleaner over the jets but no joy, not great in this weather.

Probably the same issue my 2013 V60 had.

Garage took the front bumper off and replaced all the solid stuff with rubber hoses.

No idea why they decided to use plastic that gets brittle and then breaks easily!
