Thought I'd get more interest in here.

I'm currently de-wipering the zed as we speak. However, I'm stuck with the water tube. What do I do with that? Does it come off? Doesn't look like it does.. Should I Stanley it?

Cheers

I just blocked mine up with something and taped it up so it doesn't leak in the boot.

Just remember to never turn the rear wash jet on ;)

Does it remove itself from the motor. I.e. can I get the rubber bit fixing it to the motor off? Or do I have to cut it with scissors / stanley blade then patch it up?

tbh I would find a bolt/screw of the correct size and insert it into the end, then tape + tiny jubilee clip to ensure a tight fit.

Cutting = :(

From what I remember it just pops off mate. Then bung it up with something like a screw/nail and tape it in :)

Just this just pull out the side, does the whole rubber bit come out?
The tube itself seperates if memory serves me right. Can't really remember but try that. The rubber bit of the tube should just come off the plastic bit. To the left of the area you have circled.

Managed to get the motor off. Everything is sitting in a plastic bag.

Now all I need is some gel to make it waterproof... I'll do that another day (Please don't let it rain!) and to fit the cap.. two man job. Too fiddly for my wee hands!

Just left the tube dangling. Somewhere in it there was a blockage so I really saw no point lol. Looks good. Blends very well into the black window. Thanks Rory!
