Think so huh!
Most models with the split headlamp washer pump require removel of lower engine
shield, LF wheel, inner fender liner, and removing 3 bolts securing reservoir.
Then you have to remove old washer pump and replace with new updated pump.
What's new about it....the connector on your wiring harness will have to be
replaced to fit the new pump. They changed the shape. This requires you to have
the skill and tools to remove old connector and replace with new connector.
This procedure is easy for a tech and doesn't take a lot of time. Because we
have the tools and skills.
Have a Great day!
