Default How to replace headlight + windsheild washer pump..

Both of my pumps are dead, I got the new ones in hand but i'm not too sure on what part of the windhsield washer reservoir they are located.. from where do you have better access? passenger wheel well?, underneath the car?, removing front bumper? ..

thanks

Not sure what year your's is, but I could easily get to both by removing the passenger headlight on my 1998......didn't have to remove the air box/etc.

That can work too, depending on which removal you consider more involved.

I found out the hard way that the rubber seal around the headlight on an older car can decompose when disturbed unnecessarily...some things are best left alone.

I've removed the air box a couple of times to access this and other items. I found it to be a very simple, straight forward removal and had much more open access than I would reaching through a hole.
