Hi All,

Really silly question, I have 99 JDM s/tb, and have been wondering how do you operate the headlight washers?

Cheers

Has it had a replacement front bumper? Are they actually plumbed into the washer bottle? Just a thought.

Tend to agree with the latter posts as I didn't think that the JDM SF's came with headlamp washers as oem. The T/tb hasn't got them. The 'replacement bumper' sounds the most likely reason.
Let us all know the outcome !

Cheers

Grrrr..., as one of the earlier posters had mentioned, it now looks like the bumper has been replaced sometime ago. I had a look around by the battery and cant see any cables for the headlight washer. There are two cables however connected to the washer tank, obvisouly for the wipers and rear wash wipe.

Oh well and there was me hoping.

Thanks for all your help.

Bad luck... but if you ever decide to part with those washer jets, I could do with a replacement for my S-Turbo :icon_wink:
