Is there a way to switch the windshield washers to be connected to the windshield wipers?

Do you really use them? To me they just make a mess. In my case I removed the tank along with the pump and all the bullshit that went with it. That thing must hold 2 gallons of washer fluid. Bet I took 20 pounds off the front of the car and it made a great spot for my oil cooler. Behind the bumper with a thermostatic controled fan allows oil to warm without having to control the flow.
Windshield/headlight washers are worthless in this part of the world.

For that matter so are windshield wipers! I removed mine the first week I had my V and only put them back on when I sold it a year later.

I had my EC cowl hood painted and installed and I told them to just leave the squirters disconnected and I'd figure something out. Sure as hell wasn't going to drill the hood for them. I'm looking into a wiper arm squirter setup myself.

May just yank the squirter setup out all together. I'd remove the wipers if it wasn't a daily but driving like ace Ventura in the rain doesn't sound too appealing... Lol

Need them and definitely won't be drilling holes in my EC hood.

If you find a wiper squirter setup you like before i find one, let me know. I'll do the same if i find a good solution.
