Changing Windshield Washer Fluid Nozzles

Well I had one break on me randomly so I had to order some new ones and I figured I'd make a how to to help anyone out who needs to change these even tho you wont need to change them maybe once in your cars life time ha.

You'll need:
A wrench(I used a 12mm)
Pliers
Your new nozzles obviously
(2) small zip ties the smallest you can find is best
A little patience

I first started with taking out the original nozzles. To do this just pop your hood and take your pliers and twist the bottom of the nozzle from under the hood. This will break the nozzles and they will fall out. Then pull off any remaining pieces connected to the two hoses. Put your new nozzles thru and on top of your hood, don't worry about where theyre positioned bc it'll change as you tighten them down. Then use the nut and rubber washer they provide and put them on the bottom of the nozzle so that you can tighten them down. Once you get tight enough you cant use your finger anymore break out the wrench. I held the top of the nozzle to make the tightening easier. Then reposition the nozzle on the hood so it is facing the windshield and where you want it. I got the led nozzles but have not wired the leds yet so for now theyre just tucked under the hood. Finally take the two zip ties and tie them around the hose to your new nozzle bc theyre aftermarket and dont hold the hose on theyre quite snug enough. Then drop your hood and turn your key so you can check out your new nozzles and make sure they spray correctly. To adjust the height take a needle and put it into the two holes on each nozzle and adjust them up or down or side to side if need be. The stream is decent, it's not like the oem ones that flow all over its more of a piss stream haha. But enjoy and I hope this helps. Here's the pics

how do these windshield nozzles remove and install

Got my windshield nozzles today. new hoses already attached to them.

Now in another thread, I saw where a derek-g stuck some pliers under the nozzle and said to twist them.

So all I have to do is grab the tabs or just bottom of the nozzle where the hose plugs in?

And to install do they new ones just pop straight in?

This is probably simple stuff but I can make a simple project a hard one lol.

Sounds like a quick and easy job. yeah I got them from the site that included the hose already attached to the nozzle. So I already know thier getting a snug fit. Even the bag says genuine OEM with the part # on theb bag. Each nozzle/hose came in it's own bag. Those LED seem cool, but I wouldn't need them lol.

I just had my passenger side spray nozzle break on me (the piece under the hood that attaches to the hose cracked and fell off). I want to try the black w/white LED ones...but cant find any. I asked the seller if he could mix/match for me-waiting to hear back. Have you guys found any others with a black/white LED combo?

Also, has anyone actually used the LED on these? How does it look/work? How have the spray nozzles held up compare to OEM?

Passenger side right or left?

My passenger side wiper nozzle hose broke off & I'd like to replace it. Looking at the parts list, they have part #8265A047 for the left and part # 8265A048 for the right. Is the passenger side considered the right side? I want to make sure I order the right part. Can someone please help? Thanks!
