    Default Guide for fitting washer sensor?

    Is there a guide for fitting the washer level sensor?

    Part numbers and if you remove the arch liner to drill the hole or take the bumper off and remove the bottle?

    I second that, you might have to clear out any
    plastic from cutting.

    Just looked it up and the 2 part numbers (Incase anyone else needs to know) are:

    Sensor: 90346055
    Grommet: 90276310


    How easy is it to remove the washer bottle?

    Quite easy, i remove the bumper, then theres 3 10mm bolts, 2 on the plate behind the wheel arch cover, and 1 behind the bumper just behind the horn.

    I think there is a pic on the washer bottle how2
