How to Replace Windshield-Washer Tubing in a Geo Metro
- 1). Determine if your windshield-washer tubing is clogged. Occasionally the little holes on the ball of the sprayer become clogged from washer fluid build-up or from hard water. You wouldn't need to replace the tubing if this is the case. Simply use a pin or sewing needle to poke a hole to eliminate any debris.
- 2). Purchase windshield-washer tubing from a car parts store. The tubing might also be referred to as vacuum tubing. There aren't any specific part numbers to buy.
- 3). Find the windshield washer fluid reservoir. It's located in the front right corner of the Geo's engine compartment and has a blue cap.
- 4). Remove the old tubing. Be cautious around the vacuum connectors. Try not to break or disfigure them if you plan to reuse them.
- 5). Hold up the old windshield-washer tubing if you plan to replace the entire section. Place the new tubing next to the old, and use the old as a guide to the length you need. Use a hose cutter to cut enough of the new tubing to fit your Geo Metro.
- 6). Place the new tubing in your Metro. Use the old connectors, or insert the new ones, and ensure the tubing doesn't interfere with any other engine parts. When closing the hood, be extra careful that the tubing doesn't get bent.
