    Default Headlamp washers

    Right ive got a new SRi bumper so i figured before it goes off to get sprayed id make my HID's 100% legal. ive got all the parts to fit the system exept mine doesnt have the actually wiring in the fuse box and the relays and such.


    my question is can i rig the high pressure pump for the headlamp washers up to the same pump that does the windscreen washers? Eg. Cut and solder them into each other so they both run off the same feed as it were.

    its going to be a hell of a lot cheaper than Tech2 ing it all and fiddling around in the fuse box.

    apprently it does as if u have it all done propperly the washers will only come on the first time u spray for a certain amount of time then stop and wont come back on again for a set period..... its to save water i think.


    but to save £50 i think i can live with filling the washer tank up more often lol




    Question still stands can i run the two pumps off the same feed? i know obviously it will work and all be fine im just thinking of the CAN-Bus freeking out or the wires not being able to take the load.
