Why did they stop making them after 1995?

I'm with you, Randy, the location of the squirters is kind of tacky, IMO.

The 94 SSEi that I looked at had an obnoxious rubber strip that wrapped around the whole front bumper. It just looked out of place... The car didn't "flow" well. That'* what prompted me to look closer and discover those buggers.

Ditto. Electrical gizmo # 98347520934759283475938475 that isn't/hasn't been working at one point or another.
If you guys actually wanted them to work, you probably need to fill the resevoir. However, yours, like mine, might be cracked. Even if mine wasn't broken I wouldn't use it, for the reaasons below.

Actually I'm thinking you should turn them to the side...aim them so you can shoot the person driving next to you....

or if you aim them both to the outside of the car...each resepctive side..you could gun it..press the sprayers and say...look I'm going so fast I've got moisture run off like a plane!!!!

Confirmation that 95 SSE/SSEi models had them, too.

The only thing I've found them good for is taking off snowy slush. Works good for that. And the gravel slime they use in winters here instead of salt.

Mine have worked off and on and seem to be fine for the time being, although I only ever use them to test if they still work. Also my tank or pump leaks like a seive sometimes. Like for a month or two I'll have to put in a gallon every 1 1/2 weeks, regardless of usage. Other times it holds like a ... well I don't know, but it doesn't leak.

Im not sure that is totally correct, there are some 95'* here that dont have them, maybe a mid year change, I think that Gordy has em but Haro and Lakeville dont

Mine has what looks like a 5 gallon tank two fluid motors...but there aren't any squirters on my bumper cover. Unless they pulled a James Bond and hid them on me.

Foote wants me to go out and look in my manual...lol... Just cuz his boss is on the prowl...he thinks I can run anywhere anytime.

Foote-Remember the pc...you got 45 minute yelling at...I got 2 second "let'* stop doing this" tallk.
