A simple way of retreiving washer jet lines....

Postby Jutstar » 03 Mar 2009, 22:36

To cut a long story short they are not connected to my jets, i have now managed to get the jets off and may be able to re-use them, but i am finding it hard to get the water lines, i ve tried fishing them out the hole, but thats no good, is there a simple way without going down the route of removing dash etc???

I can t see anything in the Wiki.

Many thanks

If you have an air line you could try putting some air down them hoping to straighten them out enough for you to get a hooked wire on to them and pull them through the hole. In the absence of joints you could posibly thread some bowden cable inner up them to acheive he same end. Tough one that!

or possibly just reach up behind the dash and do it by feel while someone else is outside looking?

I found the lines down the back of the master cylinder (to the left) and pulled them back through in to the cab.

I then fed a straightened wire coat hanger in through the washer jet hole toward the master cylinder.

Then I stuck the end of the pipe over the wire coater hanger and gently pulled the coat hanger with tube out of the body.
