Question Replacing Windscreen Piddlers?

How do you remove the windscreen washers so I can put some ricey blue flashy ones on (not really - just wanting to replace old ones with some new ones) ?

Looing from under the bonnet there is only a small hole the pipe goes into? Do you need to undo a nut with a long socket or similar?

From the top of my head, they just have clips that you push in for them to pop out.

Re: Replacing Windscreen Piddlers?

depends on the car, the easiest way is to remove your heat shield, pull off the squirty hose then with needle nose pliers to squeeze in the tabs you turn and push them out

When you have them out you can see the notching they have to line up with

Re: Replacing Windscreen Piddlers?

I just yanked mine out with some pliers (put a rag or something around them so if you slip you dont chip the bonnet). Then just pull the hoses off them and youre set.
