    Default Headlight washer system?

    Has any one retrofitted the washer jets for headlights on the front bumper? It all looks simple enoughvto do! But my question is are the location points already on the backside of bumper so its just a case of drilling or is it marking and measuring myself, i believe the location points are marked out for parking sensors sovi thought maybe the same for headlight washers.

    Fitted mine last year. Easy enough to do. The most awkward part is swapping the washer bottles over and yes the jets position is marked underneath.

    There is a how2 for it. If you go back to that car you got the AFL's off of you may still get the washer bottle with the pump. Do not go to VX for the hose, just buy 8mm ID rubber gas hose off ebay.

    Biggest issue will be if you have the plug at the washer bottle, but being pre 2004 and a Signum 99.9% chance it will be there. Oh yes and you'll need "You Know What" to activate them too.

    Everything is there on my car also, this might sound strange but i had an issue where i wasnt getting washers on windscreen turned out the bottle wasnt sitting right so would work . What about bridging the wires with the windscreen washer pump! Its only 2 wires so should work! You know power is going to that pump, if it still dont work pump is probably dead

    tried all sorts and had both pumps from vx on trade, even swapped the none return hose joint for a different type as there were 2 avv, my car just doesnt seem to like them working for some reason so have been a visual addition for over 2 yrs now...lol
