57 Washer to wiper vacuum hose configuration
« on: July 12, 2012, 09:41:09 AM »
I have just completed the restoration of my 57 Coupe de Ville but messed up on documenting how the 4 hoses from the washer bottle connect to the wiper motor and firewall components. Can anyone describe how these hoses connect?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Thanks Ken for sending the diagrams. They will be extremely helpful. I will attempt to fix the wipers as soon as my car comes out of the body shop. I accidentally drove it into the side of my storage locker the other day. Brilliant!

Best Regards,

John and Dan,

Glad the diagrams helped.

I cannot take the credit for someone else's work.
I found these on this forum some time ago and thought they should come in handy at some stage.
I am just waiting on the washer pump I purchased from the States then I too will need the layout.
