    The washer diverter is allowing dribble down the rear window.

    Has anyone rebuilt theirs?

    And since I am a 'smart shopper', maybe I can get a PM on a price for a new one if my efforts fail.

    TIA

    I took mine apart and decided there was nothing I could do with it.

    85321-60050, list $36.12, figure it's around 27 bucks. :beer:

    I tried but it didn't last to long. There is a little metal washer-like thing that has a rubber piece glued to it. It acts as a valve when the diverter is energized. The problem is the washer thingy gets pited with rust and the rubber starts to bubble. This causes it not to seal properly and you get water shooting out both the front and back squirters. I ended up changing the diverter, very easy, 5 min job. Bob
