Flathead screw driver

Slava also helped me and has the tank mounted. so additional info is also found there.
Thanks Slava!

Here are the materials i used... i am so pissed at my camera(sorry about the pics):mad::mad::mad::mad:
i got 20ft of wire but i came up short. so get 30ft
12ft of 1/4 tube
zipties


here is what we will be working with today


take off the two 10mm bolts, wire clip, and tube



once its all out it should look like this....


i cleaned everything up....
the motor just pulls out

i also removed the fuses to clean better

all cleaned up


Next take off the tube on the BOTTOM and put the new 12ft tube on...


i found a grommet under the brake booster to run the tube through the cabin, you will also use this same one for the wires.



Now take off these things with the flat head screw driver, and run the tube under it


Next i started to remove the back seats to continue to run the tube. just tuck it to the side and out into the trunk



Next i ran the wires from the engine bay. i used some vampire clips, do this for both wires and make them follow the tube you already ran to the trunk


now it should look like this in your trunk ( the tube, and the 2 wires)


assemble everything together, like the back seats/door still things

make sure you get the right wires on the pump. plug them in using some wire things that fit on...(lol i dont know the name) plug in the tube and fill with some water and test it out!!!



hold it down for a few secs...
IT WORKS!!!



i didnt have time to mount it anywhere to the trunk so i will update this another time. but i am sure you can figure something out as well, but enjoy your open/clean engine bay and but the tank on the passenger side if your anal about corner weight but good luck

DISCLAIMER: i am not held responsible if you fuck up your car or make a mistake. please ask me before you do something you are not sure about.

remember USE COMMON SENSE

and the spray pattern is strong with enough pressure?
I wonder if I can use my spec c 12l tank for IC spray and windshield washers, and keep the OEM windshield washer tank for water injection...

the washer pumps from the I/C sprayer reservoirs work with out a hitch. if the pump became an issue, you could always just use one of them.

i mounted mine on the passenger side. i made a bracket that attactes to the 2 small bolts of the tail light. my next problem is that when i go down hill or hit the brakes hard the drivers side nozzel squirts out fluid. idk why, anyone else with this problem. my first guess is that since its a long tube all the fluid in it rushes toward the front of the car when i go down hill or hit the brakes.

Guys, get a rear washer tank from a '93-'95 wagon. Those years have 2 tanks, one in the front for the windshield, one in teh back for the rear window. The '97+ have a tank with 2 pumps on it (good for I/C spray I guess) and run a seprate line to the back of the car.

Anyway, should be easier to mount the flat tank on the side somewhere, and it's got a long filler hole thing to plumb it somewhere easy to fill.
