Wanted: Headlight washer valve three way valve

Cleaned up the garage and found some parts you want to sell? Or are you looking for that one part? You can advertise or request just about anything that has to do with the Volvo 480 in here: brochures, towing-hooks, antenna's, etc etc...

Good idea! The original has the input at 90 degrees so have managed to go with this:

Thanks. I am not 100% sure the sizes are correct so may well have to take you up on that offer

Part no longer available from Volvo. P/N: 3402213

Two from Charlton Volvo on eBay. One that looked right was far to small. One could be right size but has lower ‎pipe at wrong angle.

More research shows ‎that Land Rover part number DCP6656 will do the job. Looking on Google images, it seems that back in the day it looked identical to ours. Now it looks slightly different but the pipe sizes and dimensions still match ours. ‎

Now have working headlight washers again. ‎

£12.95 from Land Rover dealer. Available much cheaper on the internet but I was short of time and they could get it next day‎

Is there a non return valve in there?

I would be tempted to get a cheap generic non return piece and a standard T-piece, should be able to get them alot cheaper.

You could also try a friendly pet shop, the type thing for fish tanks etc.
