Ok, so a while back I put on the Rieger RS4 front bumper, and there are no holes for the headlight washers and they are pointless anyways, so I removed them and the hoses. However, what have some of you done so you can still put washer fluid in the resevor and use it for your windsheild washers? Did you just remove the hose that goes to the front bumper and fill the hole up with some filler or silicone or something?Give me some ideas? Or is there something you can buy to cap that off? Thanks in advance guys![az]

same question here... I am gonna install a kerscher front soon and was wondering the same thing. I figured just clamp the hose near the resevoir or something, but I would be interested in a less rigged up way

I disconnected the hose that goes from the fluid reservoir to the headlight washers, and just clogged it with silicone.

I am sure lowes or home depot would be your friend on that one!! Then just disconnect the pump electricly...

Souds good, I have a tube of clear silicone... guess ill just pack it in the hole on the tank... and I wont forget to unplug the pump... could I use that pump for a water injection setup? hmmm....

No need to clog it. all you do is fold it up acordian style and zip tie it. Kind of what you would do to a garden hose when you dont want it to spray. But i have mine folded 3 times and zip tied for 3 years now. NO ISSUES>

Just run it back to the resevoir?

Hm.... zip ties are everones best friend, thanks nismosx, il try that first since its snowing outside and wet and cold... so the silicone isnt going to adhere. Plus zipties sound faster, lol

^^^^ it really works well, just fold the hose over itself three or 4 times. zip tie it and tuck it in so that when you install the bumper it is not in the way.

and your welcome

go to your local harware store and buy a plastic cap/cork for the hose and use a clamp to keep it in there.

I cant believe you guys actually used silicone, lmao!

or you can just put a bolt/hose clamp on the hose....

I found a plastic plumbing clamp just to keep it useful in the furture if I go back to OEM.
