Finally fixed the headlight washer leak!

Finally set out to find and repair the leak of windshield washer fluid caused when we removed the front bumper for the under ride protection install. Also in that install, I pulled the rt front bumper off a bit to aggressively and broke the plastic clips that pull it in to the body. Today was the day to replace them as well!

The mystery clip for headlight washers. This little horseshoe looking clamp holds the feeder tube from the tank to the front headlight washers. When removed, the clamp had backed out and the hoses were disconnected. One little clamp and we were done! No more errors!

This was one of the broken clips- Rt side, IIRC. Red arrows = bad. Green = good! The bumper is now nice and flush!

I had to remove my front bumper to change the xenon headlights and broke some of the clips like you did. Where did you buy the replacement clips? Do you know the part number?

I've managed to get the bumper attached close but it's not completely flush like it should be.
