Headlight washer removal? How to

Post by Sloperboy » Sat 27 Feb, 2016 20:00

Evening,

Came home tonight to a wet garage floor right under the front drivers side of my z3, checked below and it appears to be coming out from the fog light area, which is directly below the headlight washer. Facelift model.

Can anyone tell me does this nozzle just prise out from the bumper or is it secured vie a nut or similar? How do I get into it?

Once out I will be able to tell if it is just the hose that has come off or is it the nozzle, anyone have a similar experience?

Thanks, Will :?:

Yep Steel nut on a plastic nozzle :head: that needs accessing from behind, a bit of a pain to remove with the bumper in place, easy enough to drop off the front bumper though.

Cheers Brian for the confirmation - at least one part of my front end is "normal" :lol:
