Screen squirter ball gone! again

Post by leopard_pagan on Sat Dec 07, 2013 2:34 pm

2nd van & 2nd windscreen squirty metal ball popped out the housing on the A14!

I SUGGEST anyone double align their squirters & GLUE the poxy balls in place!!!
Bought a plastic squirter & i will cut out the plastic ball & glue that in the crevice... much easier than trying to get the damn dash out just to get to the squirter!
Oh and glue the other ball in case that one decides to piss off too!

Do like I've done. Rip the damn stupid thing out. Get some fish tank air line and connect it onto the water line with a hose connector. Block the other end of the air line with a screw or something. Then poke some holes in the air line. Then cable tie the hose to the wiper arms. This way the water squirts straight onto the windscreen right next to the wipers.

That's actually a pretty good idea if its done tidy with the pipes rerouted through the bulkhead next to the wiper arm shaft points!

good idea... i have already glued a new ball in.... wait for it to set (too cold tonight?) & check i did get the aim OK then let it set solid.. then re-aim the other ball & glue that sod in place too!
