Default winshield misters

I want to replace the water line inside the hood so that i can once again use my misters. Question, do I just have to remove the fiber layer under the hood?

Thanks guys

i would atleast loosen it near the back of the hood otherwise you'll just end up messing it up, they push pins are pretty easy to remove, just get a pair of plieyrs under it and pull out, or you can buy a special tool for it from harbor frieght for pretty cheap

What seemed to be the problem with the misters? Have you confirmed your pump is still good, and that the squirters themselves aren't clogged?

Yeah, the single line goes under the liner on the driver's side just under the insulator, then splits off around the driver's side squirter.

First i would check your pump by detaching the line by the driver fender. Push the mist button and see if it squirts. If it doesn't then your pump is bad. If it does, likely the squirters are clogged. A fine point needle should work.

The actual nozzles are likely fine, what usually happens is that the lines break. I'd start in the driver's side corner where the fender meets the windshield. There is an accordion-shaped hose about 1/4" in diameter. Try to work the sprayer. If the pump makes noise, it will likely pump washer fluid out of that hose. If it does, replace it for about $10 from any Acura dealer. Hopefully everything works after that, but if, after replacing that hose, it still doesn't spray out of the nozzles, then pull back the hood liner. There is actually quite a maze of tubes and all of the connections are fragile! The plastic will snap with little effort, so I'd recommend that you split lines at the connections rather than pulling them off. The hose is available at any auto parts store for a few bucks. If no leaks and still no spray, the nozzles may be clogged. They can be cleaned - as well as redirected - by inserting a pin or needle into the spray head. If needed or missing, the sprayers are still available through Acura and iirc cost about $15 each.

This is an old thread, but I saw mention of using rsx spray nozzles? Does anyone know the part number? The one mention I saw on the forum, was for the crv...
