Hi. I'm Mike from 1A Auto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years.

Here's your washer fluid reservoir. And here's your washer pumps down here. Right there and right there. There is some fluid in our reservoir right now. So we're gonna put a pan underneath to catch the fluid when we pull the pump out.

So we're gonna grab on the pump. Just pull it slightly forward. And then up. And the fluid's gonna come up.

All right, so this plastic retainer right here has to be twisted. So if you hold the hose and pump, and then take this little plastic piece, twist it. And that will unlock it. You can take the pump out. See it has little lock in there. Twist it back, you can see the locks come in. Then unlock it again.

So to disconnect the electrical connector here, there's a little tab right here. You can push down on that and pull out. It's difficult. You can use a screwdriver. Get in there, just lightly pry up on it till it clicks, and you can pull it out. There's the connector. And there's the little lock.

Sometimes it's hard to push with your fingers. So if you use a little screwdriver and not pry it too hard, you don't wanna break it. And the other pump would be the same process. And we're gonna reconnect the electrical connector.

We have our hose. We need to rotate this so it locks. And then we push this on till it clicks like that. And take that inboard motor, line it up with the hole. Push it down. Make sure it's all the way down.

And that's all set. Now we're gonna take our brand new washer fluid, and fill up the washer reservoir. You wanna make sure you use new washer fluid, or strain out the old washer fluid. When you're done, just put the cap on.
