Windshield Washer Fitting - Part Number?

I was washing the front of the coach today and noticed that my passenger side windshield washer fitting is broken.  Is this a part I can get locally at an auto parts store or do I need to go to Foretravel?  If I can get it locally what do I ask for?

Thanks,
Oscar

I don't know about that part but I have a broken nozzle and a place  called BusParts.com has the nozzles so they may have that part
also. I haven't been able to find the nozzles locally yet.

Nozzles: (mounted on front): TAC Bus Parts @ $9.00 each - Nozzles

You'll have to remove the dash pad to get at those little guys.

Now to figure out how to remove the dash pad

There are several good posts on the procedure for dash removal. Here's one by juicesqueezer which I referred to when I removed mine (Dash Removal). Also, Jerry Whitaker did a detailed post several years ago. It's a lot of work to get that $9 part!

Also, you might find that your 3/4" plywood dash has separated from the fiberglass. This is the time to fix it.

It's not hard to get to it it's just a lot of work. When I recovered my dash and ultra leather I had all that out. My guess is about 10 to 15 minutes tops to pull everything off in a little more than that to put it back together again. It's not something I want to do again but if I have to I will and a windshield washer is pretty important.

I went a different route and used marine tex to join the two pieces back togeather. Works fine and didn’t have to dive under the dash.

I've replaced one of ours but have decided that next time one breaks I will make 2 out of a stainless steel bolt!!

I glued mine with super glue and lasted about three months. Second failure I cut a small piece of round brass stock and simply drilled center of plastic out and tapped brass into hole. Doubt it will ever fail again.washer works as new.

Got mine from Foretravel while we were there for service. It was kind of a pain to dig through the back of the dash but it can be done. The ones I got from FOT were plastic so they shouldn't corrode as the last ones did.

Looks like this large side .150 small .130. Drill is a number 30 so close to .125. Six inch long drill bit will allow you to almost parallel skin. Drill with extreme care and press / tap brass in place. Again extreme care because drill will try to climb in plastic and split it

Thanks for the instructions!  I will go buy the 6" long #30 drill bit.
