It looks like they are just cliped in. But when I try to pry them out, it won't budge. Any ideas?

thanks,

Bry

If they won't pop out, then they should have tabs that can be grasped from the back and squeezed.

guaranteed your gonna break the braket that holds them in bry if they are old. its tough to get them out, open the hood, you already have the liner off, but look at it , you can see how it comes off. however unless you really dont have to take them off, dont.

I probably need to replace mine, so this info's good for me too. (One of them's spraying really high on my windshield, and it's not just crooked or somthing)

Did you try sticking a sewing needle in the jet? You can adjust where it sprays!

Here's a craptacular picture I just drew. This is basically what it looks like. The clip won't budge as you can see there's another little plastic peice under the clip that's preventing it from moving. I've tried prying it and it seems I'd have to break the clip or the little plastic peice.

Mark, come over and help me

I just looked in my Bentley Manual and here's what they say for removing the spray nozzles:

1. Open Hood and remove insulating pad
2. Carefully disconnect hose from nozzle. Disconnect harness connectors for nozzle heater.
3. Push Nozzle out of hood.

Note: There's a photo of this step with the caption: First push nozzle forward then upward from underneath hood.

The guy in the photo is using a pair of channel locks to grip the washer jet from underneath and he's pushed the pliers down towards the underside of the hood so that from the bottom of the hood perspective, the lowest part of the nozzle is pushed down at about a 45 degree angle to the plane of the hood.

In other words you have to angle the nozzle out. It doesn't come straight out.

Grab the nozzle and bend the pliers down towards the bottom of the windshield.

HERE are step by step instructions with plenty of photos.

HTH,
Fred

Good god that was easy. Thanks for the tips. The push forward then push up from the bottom worked perfectly! I was prying the crap out of them with vicegrips all day long!

Glad to be of assistance. Sometimes all you need is just a little bit of info to get things to work.
