How to change front washer nozzles?

I've been trying to pull the push plugs out so I can try and change the washers but they're almost impossible to pull out. Does anyone know how to get them out? I was only able to get one out and I ripped some of the insulation in the process.

Also I took the plastic mold off the dash and saw what looked like an aftermarket alarm system. I'll get a picture up tomorrow when the sun is out but is there supposed to be any type of box just above the speedometer that flashes green and red?

Last thing, I'm trying to change the rear wiper blade and can't seem to figure it out. I've already bought the replacement blade from the dealership (yes I know) but I didn't know where else to get it.

No blinkybox from the factory.

The rear wiper blade's incredibly easy once you know how. If you look at your new one, you should see two tabs. If you squeeze those together, it comes right off. The replacement pops right in. It's a little easier to swap out if you unpark the wiper first (gently lift the blade portion of the arm up and out to clear the parking stop under the glass), but you can do it as-is.

Dealer's the only place to get the rear blade (AFAIK) and the price shouldn't have been too bad.

Yeah it wasn't too bad, but my total came out to 8x.xx since I got the push tabs for under the hood, and the replacement spray nozzles.

Yeah I was going to pull it to clear the parking stop but didn't want to chance it. lol

Now if only I can get these tabs out and replace the spray nozzles. smh, always something.

I was told you have to go under the hood and take the liner out.

Do you have needle nose pliers? Looks like the easiest way. There are two springy arms at the top that won't clear the hood once it's installed:



Squeeze them together or break them off, your call.
