PostSubject: Snapped off my washer thingo at the cars wash...Help!!   Sat Feb 06, 2010 11:26 pm

Yeah pretty stupid i know but i was rushing and using one of those foaming brushes when i hit the front windscreen washer nozzle thing on the pasanger side and snapped it right off. Any ideas on how to get to it without pulling out the whole dash? as i've just put it back in after head unit change. I've just been pretending it didn't happen coz i'm angry at myself. The drivers side stopped working also so i cant ignore it anymore. Yes i know i shoud be washing her at home lovingly with autoglym not at some car wash with a rough brush.... Any help would be great although im not sure anyone has been this stupid before.

You will need to remove the dash I think, but it may be possible if you just remove the glove box and have bendy arms?
The water will take the easy way out so it is likely to be raining behind your dash!

He he bendy arms.Clive you must know mr tickle if youve had someone work behind the dash.I think you should have added thin to the bendy.Could try an illegal immigrant,they work for nowt and can get anywhere.Only problem is you probably wouldnt get em out.

No way from the headlights, front panel welded to headlight socket/recess panel, and still a long way up from there.

sorry but you have to remove the dash as they have a push on steel clip ,bit like the old barrel lock clips only smaller. you just cant get to them from behind.
In the front end smashes we usually drill out the spot welds to remove the front panel and never forget to put in the w/screen washers first before welding the new panel on.

Yep it's a bit of a ***$3! my wife managed to snap the driver side water jet off when hitting a school girl just randomly crossing the road texting on her mobile. Put a small dent in the front panel. The girl had a broken arm and bruising good job it's a flat fronted car.
Anyway took the dash out just no way could I get to it or find the clip. Mr Tickle was not available for hire! So with a wire managed to get the water tube through the bodywork hole, and then using NO NAILS very carefully stuck the plastic front seating plate on then the water jet on that. Itís lasted over a year now and still attached.
