Default 00 SE Windshield Washer Pipe

Recently, the piping that runs between the washer hose and the wipers cracked apart. Happened right where the piping makes a 90 degree turn under the hood and heads into the cowl.

I managed to find a replacement pipe...connects to the hose on the passenger side, then appears to run through the firewall and into the cowl area.

Anyone ever replaced this pipe before? Looking for any helpful DIY tips on removing the windshield wiper assembly so I can get this new pipe installed.

Thanks in advance...

Remove the cowl cover (plastic piece that runs the width of the engine compartment and has the leaf screens in it) and its an easy repair. There are 6 or 8 plastic clips holding it in place. These clips work by pushing them into place, than inserting a plastic pin in the center that expands the end of the clip to hold it in place. To remove, push the center pin all the way through, remove the clip and retrieve the pin.

If your plastic pins don't look like that, send me a picture and I will tell you how to remove them.

Thinking about it, you also have to remove the windshield wiper arms to remove the cowl screen. Remove the plastic cap from the pivot point, remove the nut, and gently pry up to remove the arm and blade.

Where did you find that hose assembly? According to diagrams it appears it is part of the cowl (about $200) I just broke off the passenger side hose attachment to the nipple (brittle plastic) and just looking for that hose assembly. I figured it should be under $15 but I'm not spending $200 on a new cowl!
