    My windshield washer quit on me awhile back and last week I discovered the hose running from the pump to the hose by the windshield was rotted. The new part came yesterday and I figured it was an easy fix. I climbed underneath and popped off what I thought was the right hose and was met with washer fluid in my face. Not sure why it emptied the tank without the pump running. But that turned out to be the rear washer hose. I couldn’t see the other one so I figured I needed to pull the tank. So off came the wheel, inner fender, battery and battery tray. Of course the battery tray was rusted so I wire wheeled it and painted in Hammerite Rust Encapsulator.

    BTW it actually looks way better than that pic, that was taken after 2 of the 5 coats. Anyway, I put things back together except the fender liner and wheel. I had to install the battery tray and battery in order to try it. I hit the button and nothing hit the windshield but when I got out I saw it all over the ground. I had put the new hose on the rear pump. Idiot lol. Which doesn’t even operate since the rear wiper delete. So I decided to remove the one bolt from inside the fender and see if I could swap hoses. I still couldn’t see the front pump but I did it by feel. Yay.

    Red has its place. A battery tray is not one of them imo.

    Installed my Fram Fresh Breeze cabin air filters today. I didn’t expect the old ones to be so bad but I guess it’s been 2 years so wth.
