On our 2006 it developed the common leaky nozzle and i always hated the ugly hose hanging under the hood. I went looking for a solution and while there are kits for this, they are pricey. This mod cost a whole $15 to do both cars (my 2006 and 2004).

Tools needed:
13mm socket
phillips screwdriver
straight screwdriver
knife

Parts needed:
1 vacuum tee (comes in an assortment Autozone #47328)
5' 7/64" vacuum tubing
2 clip-on washer nozzles (unsure of part# or price since they were given to me at local store but they keep behind counter in an assortment box)

Parts laid out:


Close up of new nozzles:




Begin by removeing the phillips screws located in the covers under the wiper arms then pulling the plastic pins out with a screw driver to gently pry out if needed:




Pop out the covers on the wiper arms then using a 13mm socket removing the wiper arms.




Then lift out both covers. Once they are off you will see the washer line going through the firewall:




You will see were its joined together and pull it apart:




Now the tubing that runs towards to washer tank will hookup into the tee and put approx. 3' of the new hose on the left and approx 2' of the new hose on the right side:




Lay out the hose through the notch as shown while making sure the new hoses can not interfere with any moving parts (IE:The wiper arm and motor)



Now put the pastic covers back over the wiper motor and washer tank.

Now clip on the nozzles onto the arm. The drivers side is close but will work fine:



Once you have both on, gently work the ends off the new hoes onto the nipple. Then using your fingers work the hose under the spring on the back of each arm.



Once that is done install the arms back onto car and put cap cover over the nut.

Double check that the hose is routed at the bottom and does not interfere with any movement.




Now check to see if it works:




Yeah, just as good as the ugly factory nozzles do and no more ugly hose hanging under the hood. I did both of our cars under 30mins. You may can get a single vacuum tee at Napa or hardware store but i got the assortment since i didnt know what size i needed for the factory line.
