01' CV Windshield washer squirter

The passenger side seems to be plugged as the drivers side works fine (not the switch). I tried to remove the plastic cover on the windshield to get to the line (4 philips head screws and a push-in pin) but couldn't get to it. I ultimately broke a piece of plastic on the passenger side corner of the windshield. How do I get to the washer fluid line and what is that piece of plastic called so I can I replace it? Oh yeah, and do I need to remove the wiper arm? thanks in advance........

There are some clips on the drivers side of that panel and, yes, you have to remove the wiper arms.

Re: 01' CV Windshield washer squirter

The plastic piece(s) that runs along the bottom of the windshield, below the wiper arm and above the squirter hose(s). The squirters are mounted in this piece. There's 2 interlocking pieces, one for the drivers side and one for the the passenger side, I need the one for the passenger side. They are secured by 4 philips head screws and a push in plastic screw. The drivers side also has 3 clips. Do you perchance know the part name and/or part number
?

Ford calls it "Cowl top vent panel". I don't know the part number. Check here for a used one. Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

Re: 01' CV Windshield washer squirter / wiper arm removal

Well it's been a while and thought I'd update this thread. I saw some debri (bits of leaves) inside the windshield washer reservoir so I decided to drain/rinse it out, of course first I had to remove the air cleaner bracket. I disconnected the washer reservoir but couldn't disconnect the electrical connection on the bottom (and certainly didn't want to force it). So I used an old meat baster to drain it and the debri (as I couldn't turn the reservoir upside down) angled it, and rinsed it with fresh water, drained it and repeated until all debri was removed, re-attached it all and magically the passenger side squirter started working! All for the price of washer fluid!

I also had a bad wiper arm on the drivers side, the blade to glass pressure was non-existent and my annual inspection was due. After seeing the new wiper arm, I discovered how to disconnect the old one. It was awkward and time consuming as the hood was in the way and the new arm would only go on if you lifted the blade, lined up the slot and pushed it all down on the hub simultaneously after disengaging the locking clip (here's the link). Hope this helps just 1 person!

I'm sure it will. Many don't know about that.
