Rear Windshield washer line location - Leak/missing

Post by Fuzzball » Sat Nov 25, 2017 5:54 pm

Hi all,

My 08 Taurus X has a missing hose from the Windshield Washer bottle to the squirter in back. The lines for front and back come off the bottle and up then get directed to the firewall area. Right under a brace, the one going to the front takes a turn and the one that feeds the back has no rubber hose connected. I don't see any hose that "came off".

I'm going to try to get a picture, but has anyone heard of or seen this?

When I use the rear washer, the fluid just ends up under the vehicle at the front passenger area.

thanks for any hints,

Have you searched for a thread on this site about the rear window washer lines? I ask because I vaguely remember this topic coming up before and someone posting either the diagram or a link to the diagram of how the hose is run. You will need to find out how much of your rear hose remains and replace the missing part, but it helps if you know the route that the hose takes.
