Default headlights washer $$$$$

Another question for you...Do you have a checkvalve on the line from washer fluid tank to front bumper nozzles? I have just installed the nozzles and they drain the washer fluid on the bumper...The car came with this option I have 2 pumps and a double tank .

Are you saying that, since there'* not check valve, the washer fluid just draws the tank down until it'* empty or something similar?

Try posting in the "Wanted" section.

Maybe one of our regular yarders will be able to find one for you.

How sure are you there is an in-line check valve? I would think it would be part of the pump.

There is a inline check valve. I removed mine by accident and replaced it with a tee on my '94, and all my washer fluid pissed out of the headlight nozzles. Just so you know, you will need to find a check valve at the junkyard for it.
