Default right head light sprayer is leaking

well i have noticed i was going through windshield wash pretty fast so i have been looking for a leak and the other day i see one of the sprayers on my right head light is slowly leaking fluid (left head light if your looking at the front of the car) ....and when i touch it, it starts to come out more...its kinda cool how i found it because i first see fluid leaking down the right side of the right tire well...then i fallowed the path of fluid up and around the bumper to the sprayer.

so how can i fix this with out taking off the whole bumper? because as i looked at it, it did not seem to have an easy access.

thanks
jason

The sprayer never sees pressure until the pump is on.

Your pump is leaking internally.

I believe I have the extra pump from my 94 that I removed when I went to a smaller tank. let me know if you want it.

IIRC there is a seperate pump for the headlight sprayers. both of them are located on the tank.

Correct. You probably replaced the wrong pump.
