To remove the third brake light cover, we'll remove these two Phillips head screws. Once our two screws are out, reach underneath the lens. Carefully peel it up off of the car. Disconnect the hose here for the rear window washer, and the electrical connector at the end by pushing down and pulling it away.

To remove your rear window washer nozzle, simply take a small flat blade screwdriver, press down on one tab while pulling down with your finger. You'll see you get the gap there. Keep pulling down there, press in on the other side, and pull it out of your third brake light housing.

Take your new rear window washer nozzle, being sure that the spray end is facing down into the flat portion of our third tail light. Snap it back into place. Reconnect the electrical connector. The push tab faces into the back of the housing. Reconnect your rear window washer nozzle hose. Lay the cover back into place, and reinstall your two Phillips head screws.

Check for proper operation of your third brake light and rear window washer nozzle, and you're good to go.
