    Default Going to be starting my headliht washers soon

    Wasnt sure what section to put tis in as its electrical, bodywork and mechanical.

    Then I didnt know if to put it in modifying or problems lol.

    Anyway..........

    Getting all the parts together to fit headlight washes on my preface Signum.

    Is here anything you can see missing from this picture and has anyone used 8mm silicon (Internal ID) for the washer pipe rather than paying £10 a meter at Vauxhall?

    This is all the bits my local dealer supplied me as and I quote "a full kit as far as I can tell"

    He also either by mistake or because he's generous and looks after me or because others are charging wrong (delete as appropriate) gave me the full reel of hose for the cost everyone else gets charged for 1m

    As far as I can tell, I "think" I've got everything here.

    Two jet heads and covers, two different hose connectors (unsure why they're different), one two way hose connector, one relay, two hose connector adaptor clips (little black round things), two metal clips to hold the jets in place under the bumper, five hose clips, new seals and filters for both pumps, the new pump (I already have two of the standard pumps) and the hose. I bought the larger bottle on Ebay.

    When you planning on doing this? Fancy a trip up to Ely and we can help each other do ours and you can use my spare hose as I'll have plenty?

    From your picture it looks like I have a few bits missing.

    I have no clips to hold the washer jets in and think I have one conector short (I have 2 for the jets but not one for the washer motor) and the hose.

    I am getting a load of bits sprayed next week hopfully and I am also getting the washer jet trim sprayed at the same time so looking at 3 or 4 weeks probably.

    Cant be that hard (Famous last words lol)

    Looking at that you are short the clips to hold the washer to the bumper and the connector that goes from the hose to the washer pump, the 90 degree one in the bottom left corner of Ians picture lee. Plenty of 8mm id rubber hose on ebay for about £3 a meter. And no its not difficult, does look it though when you see all those parts like that in ians pic though.

    Edit: Oh and the white relay for the fusebox and a 30amp fuse for slot 13 too.

    Don't think it's going to be a hard thing to do at all Lee, didn't mean it like that, just two pairs of hands makes it quicker and you could have had my spare hose. But in fairness, the distance you'd have to travel (didn't notice how far away you were) it would cost you a lot more than the hose in the first place

    I'm still slightly confused what all the various adaptors are for, DasArab just answered one of them for me

    I did look at the How2 but there seemed to be quite a bit of talk about parts ordered and not needed and my parts were secondhand so didnt know what the part numbers or descriptors were.

    Ian your 3 hours away but would have helped if I was closer.

    I did spot the 90 degree washer bottle one (The straight ones go on the washers themselves) but not the hose clips to bumper.

    So my remaining shopping list is: 8mm hose, bumper clips and 90 degree to washer connector.

    Yeah, I've just been through my lot and pre-assembled the bottle, pumps and connectors, don't need a couple of the rubber stoppers and am one straight hose connector short, so will order that tomorrow.

    To confirm the list of what you need (as far as I can tell).

    Rubber grommet for headlight washer pump x 1
    Headlight washer pump x 1
    90 degree connector for headlight washer pump x 1
    Spray heads x 2
    Straight connectors for spray heads x 2
    3 connection 1 way valve x 1
    Hose clips x 6
    Hose
