The windshield washer system is pretty simple. The washer pump is located in the washer bottle. When the washer button is pushed, the pump draws fluid from the bottle and sends it through a tube to the nozzle. This is how washer fluid is delivered to your windshield.

When a windshield washer tube fails, fluid will no longer be delivered to the nozzles, and mold may develop in the tube. Your washers won’t work and you’ll be left with a dirty windshield.

Part 1 of 1: Replacing the tube

Materials Needed

Step 1: Locate the windshield washer tube. Generally, the windshield washer tube is found in the engine compartment running from the pump to the nozzles.

Step 2: Remove the tube at the pump. By hand, remove the tube at the pump by carefully pulling it straight off.

Step 3: Remove the hood insulator. Remove the hood insulator retainers near the nozzle area by popping them out with a small flathead screwdriver. Then pull that section of the insulator back.

Step 4: Remove the tube at the nozzle. By hand, remove the tube at the nozzle by carefully pulling it straight off.

Step 5: Remove the windshield washer tube from the retaining clips. Pull the washer tube from the retainer clips, using a small screwdriver as needed.

Step 6: Remove the tube. Remove the tube from the vehicle.

Step 7: Mount the tube. Mount the new tube in the same place the old one was located.

Step 8: Attach the tube to the nozzle. Attach the tube to nozzle by carefully pushing it on.

Step 9: Install the windshield washer tube into the retaining clips. Press the tube into the retaining clip.

Step 10: Reinstall the hood insulator. Reinstall the hood insulator and secure it in place by pressing the retaining clips back into place.

Step 11: Reinstall the tube at the pump. Carefully push the tube back onto the pump.

That’s what it takes to replace your windshield washer tube. If this seems like a job you’d prefer to leave to a professional, YourMechanic offers expert windshield washer tube replacement performed at your home or office.
