Pop the old one out, pop the new one in. Can't really get any easier.

Well, I beg to differ. Getting the old one out can be a bit fiddly, I just cut the plastic tab that holds it to the underside of the bonnet. As to getting the new one in the "trick" is to realise that you have to put the head through from the underside of the bonnet out to the outside, then pull it back to snap it into position. Its a bit of trial and error, but you'll get the orientation to allow this quick enough.

I didn't do any of that. I just popped them out then popped the new ones in. Nice and simple

That's weird I replaced all three of mine and just popped them out and in with no problems

I took my hood insulation off. If anything it helps the washer fluid from freezing.

Default Help- Does spray nozzle separate from hose nipple?

I agree with the poster that states it does not just "pop out, pop in". I have a 2008 9-3 2.0T and there is not enough clearance. The Haynes manual shows the nozzle (part above bonnet) separating from hose nipple (part below bonnet), but when I tried to separate them, the unit would not separate but rather cracked apart. I have the replacements from SAAB, and they do no appear to want to separate, either, and I don't want to break the new parts. Can anyone confirm- does the spray nozzle separate from the hose nipple, *or* is it meant to be installed in one piece? Thanks!

They are one piece and installed from underneath the hood/bonnet.

I put way too much time into trying to figure out how to get my old ones out as it just didn't seem possible.....its almost like a brain teaser. I was also thinking they were supposed to come apart but they are not supposed to. Once I figured it out and saw how easy it was I felt rather foolish.


They go in from under the hood. You tilt the sprayer (so the sprayer end of the top goes in first) and feed it through (in a fish look fashion) the hole (as if you were going to install the sprayer to shoot at the fender). You will be able to get it through will little to no force. Then you have to just twist so the sprayers shoot towards the windshield and pull it down till it clicks into place.
