FRONT WASHER PUMP MOTOR REMOVAL

(1) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

(2) Remove the engine fresh air housing inside the engine compartment (Refer to 9 - ENGINE/AIR INTAKE SYSTEM/AIR CLEANER HOUSING -REMOVAL).

(3) Disconnect the washer hose at the in-line connector forward of the cowl grille so that the in-line connector remains with the washer hose from the fresh air plenum.

(4) Disconnect the washer hose from the hose clip located on the front fender side shield.

(5) Remove the filler tube screw.

(6) Hoist and support vehicle on hoist or jack stands.

(7) Remove the right front wheel and tire assembly (Refer to 22 - TIRES/WHEELS - REMOVAL).

(8) Disconnect the left right front wheelhouse splash shield and move aside (Refer to 23 - BODY/

EXTERIOR/WHEELHOUSE SPLASH SHIELD -REMOVAL).

(9) Drain washer fluid from the reservoir and into a suitable clean container. This can be done by disconnecting the windshield washer hose from the front (outboard) washer pump and allowing the

washer fluid to drain into a container through a temporary jumper hose connected to the front washer pump.

(10) Disconnect the electrical body harness connectors to the washer pump motors and the fluid level sensor. Slide the red lock on the connector to the release position, then, depress the black tab and pull the connector off the pump or sensor.

(11) Remove the two reservoir mounting screws.

then lifting pump up from mounting grommet. Do not damage reservoir/pump sealing surface or puncture

reservoir during removal.
