Dizzy windshield washer pump romoval

I need to replace washer pump on l-series wagon. Can get at it real easy since the wife crunched out a chunk of wheel well liner. I'm not sure about disconnecting the electrics. The pump assembly pulls out of the tank assembly with no problem just the connection seems odd. Pump is cracked and sprays in face when helpful wife tries to wash windshield while I am inspecting. Lucky for me I wear glasses, lucky for her I thought it was funny. Had to add that in so all that read this can enjoy.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Yes, I enjoyed the frivolity. Thank you! Its always good to put your best foot forward (with help from your important half) in your first post.

Good luck finding a washer motor (rockauto.com or saturnparts.net?) as I would imagine the container and pump would come as one unit. I can be wrong though. Would epoxy fix this? The next suggestion would be trolling the local junk yards. Disconnecting the wiring shouldn't be too challenging although some snap/quick connectors defy imagination. Some require pushing in a tab while others require prying out the tab to release the death grip some connectors have.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: windshield washer pump removal

Tried saturnparts.com and the online store lists part for $35 not bad. Called their 800 number and they say $63 gotta get back on phone and talk it over with them some more.
May try to epoxy the crack if I can remove it without breaking. Waiting for warmer day to get the road slop off and fingers ready. I found that taking a digital picture and enlarging the area shows the crack really good but still not sure about the connection.
Thanks for the saturnparts.com link.
To be continued...........

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
