headlight washer replacement

Recommended Posts

one of the washers for the headlight has snapped off. My question is how ez is it to replace if I can purchase a used one. it looks like its attached to a section of the headlamp and its part of it.

Also any idea how much that part is approximately new or used?

let me know if u want a picture or any more details

Loren, its MY 2001, so the black washers near the front of the bumper.

After a little more research I found out how to remove the headlight, and it is separate from the headlight. I pulled the headlamp out and put it back in. Thank youtube for that, just search on 996 headlight removal.

So now the question is it the entire washer module that gets replaced? or just the nozzle washers where the water comes out. I found out when I pull them up its springloaded and it wasn't intuitive how they come out. If its the entire module it looks like one screw and remove the clip that holds the hose on.

Also I found I can get a used one for $75 I will ask for a picture of it that will tell me if its the entire module or the piece w/ the two nozzle washers.

thanks in advance
