Hi guys, wondering if any of you could point out where I am supposed to route the headlight washer hoses on the inside of the bumper (facelift model).
Finally took the plunge and started hacking my bumper apart to get the washer jets installed .
Took everyones advice and drilled loads of small holes (using a 2mm bit) inside the markings on the back of the bumper about 2.5mm inside the line.
Then with double sided sticky tape (nomorenails) stuck the rear part of the washer jets to the bumper location.
Moved round to the front side of the bumper and using my high speed die-grinder and a ¼’ router flush trimming bit (above) routed out the remaining plastic following the profile of the washer jet and ended up with this
That was tense....... had to be sooooo carefull not to catch the inner jet part/nozzle with the router bit, so if I ever had to do it again I would probably remove the nozzle head to be on the safe side.
Well now its all put together and sitting in the lounge as it was too dark to put it back on the car, plus I've got to install the new washer reservoir and gubbings then can have some fun getting it to work
All in all took me about 3 hours to get to this stage, just thought I could throw some ideas for some of the other folk who were considering doing the same. Just need to figure out how to rout the jet piping and hopfully all will be well and good.
Hope it helps
