Hi guys, wonder if anyone can help or point me in the right direction please :)

Apologies if this is the wrong subforum for this, wasn't sure what headlight washer/pumps fell under! Also, I downloaded the How To guide but couldn't find anything on this.


Anyway some kind soul hit my car and disappeared, leaving a few scrapes and the cover of the headlight washer pump on the ground (if that's what it's even called!)

The washer is still working but I can't seem to get the cover back on - it seems maybe there's a part that's been knocked off?

Here's the jet as it's working at the moment (as a wonderful cyclist-greeting mechanism..... just kidding)




Here's the front view and cap - doesn't seem to be anything broken







I did a little searching on eBay and this seems to be the mechanism.




Just wondering if I buy this part, will I be able to get the cover back on? Note I have no experience at all with this kind of thing, I'm just wondering if I can fix it given that none of the parts seem to be broken!

Thanks a lot!

Lost one of these caps when the car hit a suicidal bird on a country road. Anyone know where best to get a prepainted cap in Australia?

Mazda Australia wanted $326 for the black part, plus I'd need a cover painted Soul Red . It's at least a $500 job. I don't see any purpose in these headlight washers in areas devoid of road slush.
My current plan is to plug the feeder hose and superglue a new Soul Red cover over the bumper hole.

You just have to take the jet out with your fingers and, while it is out, put the cap on, pushing gently. Try it and leave us feedback!


Edit: Sorry, didn't see the date of the post... 🤦

You can find in AliExpress many caps, less than 20$...

Thanks. I've sourced a cap from China and had it painted. There's a rod that slides into the black part that's broken off- the black part is the hard part to find. In Australia the headlight washers are only fitted to the top 2 trim level vehicles, and the dismantlers won't sell the washer assemblies separately to the bumpers .
