Headlamp Washer Installation
As I will be installing the factory Xenon headlights in the near future, I decided to tackle the job of installing the headlamp washer system as this is a legal requirement for Xenon headlights.
So here is how it was done
Bags of Vauxhall parts!
First, remove the original washer bottle.
Drill the hole for the water level sensor and re-fit the original sensor from the old bottle.
Then fit the screen washer motor in the new bottle, and also the new headlamp washer motor.
Fit the new bottle and connect back up the plugs for the level sensor, and both motors. The plug for the headlamp washer motor is taped up in the loom.
For the hose clips, you will need to drill 4 holes. One is already there and the others are pre-marked.

Clips just then pop in.
Connect the new hose and follow around the front of the car to the non return valve.
This part of the job is then complete.
On the inside of the bumper you will see a pre-marked shape that has to be cut out. I also covered the face of the bumper with masking tape to help protect it.
Washer jet fitted
The covers come in a nice shiney black plastic.
I could have left it like this, but I decided to colour code them in flame red as per the factory option.
First, a 30 Amp fuse is to be put in position 9. Mine already had the fuse in place.
Relay installed in the relay box under the bonnet behind the battery near the bulkhead.
Cut the hoses to the right length and connect to the jets using the connectors.
With the lights off, the screen washer spray as usual. Then switch on the headlights and the headlamp washer will spray.
