When we first got the Sovereign, it was missing the washer nozzle on the passenger side. When the washer button was pressed a geyser of water would erupt from just below the windshield. This wasn’t a problem if you were on the highway as the wind would push it onto the windshield. And to be honest, it was kinda fun to squirt it up in the air and make people laugh. However, there comes a time when you just have to fix things. That day came yesterday.
Ultimate Glass in Kirtland will be replacing the cracked windshield next week, so I thought I would address worn-looking plastic trim below the windshield. The coloring was pretty bad and someone had dripped some white paint on it as well. All it took was the removal of five screws and a nut that held on the wiper arm. I painted it with a can of black spray paint. I think it turned out pretty good. But what about those spray nozzles?
The parts car nozzles weren’t any better and nobody was selling new ones on eBay. The original nozzles were heated but that wasn’t as important as simple as having functioning nozzles. So, I tried another store. Autozone in Painesville had some one-size-fits-all nozzles that fit perfectly in the space the old ones had filled. Hurrah! I now have working washer nozzles. Well, at least for the most part. I still need to adjust the passenger side as it shoots pretty low on the windshield. But it is a drastic improvement from what it was before.
