I strongly suspect that glue cost you more than a pair of new nozzles, which it takes all of about 30 seconds each to change. A set of those curved needle nosed pliers can cut that to about 10 seconds if you don't need to dig busted bits out of the hose.

They seem to be like the old visor latches on the older ZJs... a part best kept in the vehicle like spare fuses.

I didnt even take mine back in to the dealer for the broken nozzle. I ordered the oem part for $17 and installed in a few minutes. The $17 was worth it to me vs wasting half my day siting at the dealer and have them create a fiasco gouging up the hood of something and wanting to repaint it. I could see it easily taking a turn in that direction. Life is just easier doing it yourself sometimes

Re: Windshield Washer Nozzle Broken

Mine break every time the dealer has it for an oil change. Now they argue that they didn't do it and charge me for the part. But they install it for free. how nice...

I no longer use that dealer..

Re: Windshield Washer Nozzle Broken

This Forum is SO damn helpful.Havent had issues with mine yet,but Thankyou to the guys on this thread I ordered two dorman sets from Amazon and will keep them in my Jeep goodies area in the event I need to replace them.Hope that won't happen,but reading from others how brittle these become,makes sense to keep a set in reserve for each vehicle.
Thanks guys for the heads up,much appreciated.

Wanted to add my thanks to the OP. Just took me 15 minutes to install 2 new Dormans, and that included removal of both broken nipples stuck in the connectors, adjustment of the feeder tube to reduce tension, and a full waterless wash of the hood.

I'm not sure if anyone has had difficulty extracting the broken nipple from inside the hose or not, but I was able to screw in a small screw and pull it right out with pliers. Worked nice and no chance of tearing the hose.

Good point. I used a small screw, too. Seemed to break it right up without even using pliers. I just flushed some fluid through, before connecting the new nozzles.

Re: Windshield Washer Nozzle Broken

I just received the two I ordered. They are different than the old ones. The part that the hose hooks up to is a different color plastic, guess they redesigned it hard to believe but true.

Re: Windshield Washer Nozzle Broken

I do appreciate everyone no this forum. I was surprised yesterday on my home that my washers stopped working. When I arrived, I filled the bottle but saw lots of water in the engine bay. Tested the washer and sure enough, the pipe was hanging off squirting water. The other washer nozzle was in bad shape too with the pipe just hanging on. A quick search on this forum and I am not the only person to suffer this and great information provided to buy Dorman 47183 for $15 as opposed to north of $50 the factory spec unit. Never in my years of owning cars have had a washer nozzle fail, not least in a car which is 100% garaged and only 3 1/2 years old! Arrrrh, the first world problems we have to deal with!

Re: Windshield Washer Nozzle Broken

Quick question, how difficult is it to extract the old ones from the bonnet without chipping the paint around the cutout as that will surely lead to corrosion over time.
I'm not sure what type of clip holds it in place. Is it the type you squeeze to insert and release once in place?

Cheers

Yeah. If you have a bent nose needle nose plier it is quite simple.
If you look at an online pic of the oem one you should be able to figure out where to squeeze.
If you have an old chamois, you might be able to cut a piece out of it, then cut a slit in that, and get someone to hold it in place between your pliers and the metal to protect it.
