996 2001 headlight washer removal

Recommended Posts

Ok so I admit I mechanically flawed. I figured out how to remove the headlight to access the headlight washer, and it looks like it only has one screw that is needed to remove it. The issue is their is a brass connector clamp that squeezes the hose onto the connector. I cannot figure out how to remove that clamp???? I tried squeezing it at the top but it doesn't budge.

If I don't remove the clamp it looks like you have to remove the bumper to follow the washer fluid hose to where it connects. I really wanted to avoid doing that.

Is there a trick to get the hose released from the washer?qwer

if I remember correctly last time I did this, it was far easier and better to remove bumper cover, since it gives you total access to everything up front. Easier to work on too, plus you can do maintenance on the rads and condenser, inspect them for any issues, make sure the lo tone and hi tone horns are working, etc. those hose clamps, if still factory are pressure closed, so be careful, or plan on replacing with similar spring clamps or screw type. if you're trying to keep OEM, Brian Farmer - Einmalig in Huntington Beach has pretty much all of that correct harware. its cheap and guaranteed. cant go wrong. hope this is of value.
