This is interesting. The cap on the bottom of one of the windshield nozzles blew off. Do they sell the bottom cap you think? I don't even know what kind of part this is. Is it apart of the nozzle?

Good



Bad


So, I get no flow since it's the first nozzle! It all just blows into the engine compartment.

it's a couple of dollars at the dealer. or you might get lucky like me. my local dealer replaced mine for free in the checkin area without even taking all my info. it was so quick and easy (and common)

The dealer should have one... In case not, any respectable hardware store that does plumbing (preferably air compressors) should have a suitable fitting for probably a dollar tops... :)

Is it just a plastic T that ties in the washer hoses to the washer nozzle above?

Yes, but the Volvo one has a check valve built in to prevent fluid from draining back into the tank for faster flow when engaged. Pretty sure anything you'd find at the hardware store would NOT have this check valve.

Interesting. I never would have thought that. Do you have a PN? I can't find it on a diagram!

I would guess a few units, at least?

Volvoparts mentions following:

This product fits 258 vehicle variants.
Volvo: 13 models, 258 variants between 1999 and 2015.

Yeah - here at least it'd be about $3.00 for the T fitting and about $3.00 for an appropriately sized PCV Valve to fit the line to take the place of the anti-drainback.

I would think any dealer would have those in stock.

I ended up getting some from eEuroparts. Seems simple enough. Idk how that happened.

It's not like I put water in the washer reservoir. That's what it seems like though. Like it froze, built up pressure, and blew the cap. Maybe that's a safety feature for the pump?

Nah, they just blow under pressure. Must be a crappy design.

As the car gets up there in age and you begin to have these kinds of issues, it's best to replace all of the washer components. I recently replaced both delivery valves, both washer nozzles, and the washer hose short and long pieces right up to the plastic nipple that joins with the section of hose that runs down to the reservoir.

Curious, does everyone else get a second shot of washer fluid from near the driver's side headlight after the initial squirt onto the windshield? It's almost a second later, but happens every time.

Yup, and its kind of annoying for those of us that dont live in cold climates. I may just unplug the pump. No need to spray my headlights when its 100*F outside and the sun is overhead.

Nope, but then again I removed the fuse for those lame headlight washers. :)

Oh, so it comes out on both sides? Is that what those little covers are for on the bumper in front of the lights? I thought those were for the headlight wipers if that was an option that was selected.
