Hi guys,

does anybody know how to remove the headlight wiper and install the plug cover sold by VIVA?



Do I have to do some hard work?
I bought them for my SR(MY 07) and am so worried about how to do this.:rolleyes::confused:

Any advice or lessons will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance :D

1. remove headlight wipers(hinge the cover off of the nut, remove nut, firmly pull wiper off of motor arm)
2. remove bumper (use search, lots of threads on how to do this)
3. remove wiper motors
4. cork the headlight wiper tubing with something so you don't spray washer fluid everywhere for no reason
5. get factory matched paint to paint the plugs, then paint the plugs (www.paintscratch.com is a good source)
6. shove the plugs into the holes

someone that knows what they are doing more than I do might have something to add

As you 'shove' it into the holes, use some sealer/adhesive... plastic epoxy will work fine. If you really want a clean look and dont mind a 200$ bill or so is after you epoxy the plugs on, get it sanded, filled, and resprayed for a OEM look.

I used 3M double-sided tape to keep them in the holes. It doesn't take much to keep them in there.

Where are you getting your plugs? Viva has been out for a few months and CFW is the only other place I know of?
The P1 plugs had a hole in them that the wiper shaft went into. Didn't have to take the bumper off for that job. Used double sided tape , looks OK.

Instead of painting them you could always wrap them in CF.

^^ Better yet just cover the holes with CF Di-NOC, cost $8.00. No need to waste $80 on plugs. It's been like this all spring with no issues. I still removed the bumper and pulled out the wiper motors.
