Wiper fluid?

Something I've been wondering about I noticed that next to my coolant reservoir there is another labeled wiper fluid. Was there a motor for this that came stock? Where would the fluid spray from?

Pump is in the bottom of the tank. Fluid sprays from a two headed nozzle on the cowl.

Don't use 'tap' water in the tank.
Use distilled, only.
Same for your cooling system--

You can get a new motor from an auto parts store. You'll also need the tubing that goes up to a "Y" that then feeds the nozzles on the cowl.

There is no Y on a CJ7. Only a single nozzle with 2 outlets to spray on the windshield. If you have a YJ tub and didn't convert, it may have 2 outlets.

Yep, youre right! My old CJ had the single nozzle in the middle of the cowl, and my current YJ tub is different. Sorry for the incorrect info!

The control is part of the wiper knob. Just push it in.

My switch failed last year, and had to replace it with a Crown. Its a flimsy piece of crap. Its loose and rattles.

But thats just the adventure of owning a Jeep. and I figured I'd replace the the rubber tubing, since it was cracked and leaking....... but could not reach the tubing behind the firewall, no matter how much I contorted.

SO then I drilled holes into the hood and installed those generic plastic sprayers from the parts store. lol.

Here's the OEM style spray nozzle.

The pump is activated by pushing in on the wiper control knob.

Be to use only synthetic washer fluid, especially if your Jeep has a T5.

While you are at it, don't forget to change the blinker fluid too! ;-)
