    I would like to disconect the wiper run when I squirt the wiper fluid.
    I want only the fluid to come out.
    Anyone done this mod?
    Do I just cut a wire? Which one?

    I've thought about doing that mod myself. Sometimes you want to squirt some fluid to soften up the bugs or melt the ice before letting the wipers remove it. Unfortunately it looks like this is all internal to the switch itself. I've never had one off and don't know if you could break into it. The diagram in the EWD looks a little confusing and may not be accurate. The thing to do that might be easier is to splice in a wire and switch to ground that attaches to the blue/black striped wire coming from the washer pump.

    If I push the washer button in half way I get water only. Pushing button all the way I get both the water and the wipers - not sure if that's the way it's meant to work but I like it. My 80 is a UK spec vehicle would that make any difference?
