Re: Head Light washers in MY14 Overland?

In the Netherlands the headlight washers(and auto headlight levelers) are mandatory for vehicles that have xenon lighting. The argument from the roadsafety department is that dirt build up on the xenon lights will scatter the light output and will blind opposite traffic.
But I must admit that the washers do keep your lights clean from roadsalt and dust.....and empty the washerfluid tank very quickly.......
Modding your halogeen lights with xenon and not including the washer and leveling kit will fail your MOT and the police might fine you for it if the notice your after market kit.
The only enforce this if your lights are aimed to high and they look to much "ricy".
I guess that the rules in the US and Australia are a lot less rigid as over here......

Re: Head Light washers in MY14 Overland?

RE Headlight Washers,
Yes, I have them on my Limited WK 2 GC, they are high pressure and they work with snow and ice bugs and mud removal too,
totally depending what you do put into your Washer Fluids I guess.

Also they work alternate from one another,
as said previous with Xenon Head lights they should come standard.

Re: Head Light washers in MY14 Overland?

Now that winter is around the corner, I'm bringing this thread back from the depths.

Did anyone bother going to the trouble to see what it would take to add these to a '14 Overland with HIDs? Please forgive my newbness if this has been answered elsewhere. I did search, but didn't find any good info FWIW.

From what I can tell from checking the online parts places, retrofitting the headlight washer system would require a new reservoir ($140 or so), pump ($90), relay ($12), nozzle assembles ($???), pump wiring, plumbing and coding the TIPM to control the pump, which I am guessing would be the biggest stumbling block. Looks like this could easily end up as $500+ in parts. Is there an online parts place that lists the '14s yet? I suppose the best way would probably to sit down with the parts guy at the local dealer and look this stuff up.
