How do I fit a rear washer nozzle?

Everything that doesn't belong in the previous categories probably belongs here. Interiour (how are the seats mounted? how to remove the CEM?) and exteriour (how to replace the popup-lights shock absorbers or a door) are discussed here!

How do I fit a rear washer nozzle?

Post by MisterH » Sun Jun 21, 2020 1:08 pm

Jifflemon very kindly gave me a replacement rear screen wash nozzle as my current one is broken. The only issue is that I do not know how to fit it, and I have a horrible feeling I have to take the interior apart to do it.


Can anyone share their experiences with this?


Many thanks

There is a nut on the inside of the pillar which you have a high chance of dropping down the inside of the pillar.

You need to remove the trim but easy enough.

How do I remove the trim around the pillar? I've got halfway there with the window side but am having trouble with the boot seal side. I've tried prying it out with screwdrivers but fear breaking something

The grey c pillar trim is held on by two clips, you just need to be firm with it!
