    I was hand washing my car a few weeks ago at a self serve wash and the brush clipped my rear squirter right off! Pop! I need a new one and the part has been discontinued. I would go to a wrecker but I live in a tiny town very far from any pickers.

    The part # is F5CZ17603BA

    Anyone have one or can help me find one?

    I live in Tofino, BC Canada

    Thank you

    I see lots of windshield washer nozzles (and some lift gate washer nozzles on ebay. If you do a google search for "dorman windshield washer nozzle", you might see one like yours. Unfortunately Dorman mostly sells to retailers, not to the public, and they seldom includes OEM part numbers. I dont know if specific ebay sellers will ship to Canada. I think some will and some wont.

    But how do you get a new one installed and connected to the feed hose? I consider it impossible to get an old nozzle off intact (such as in a junkyard) unless you can get access to the back side; to squeeze the locking tabs in with needle nosed pliers. Plus old ones may be brittle.

    When I got my Escort the rear wiper/washer assembly was already removed, and I really haven't missed it.
    I keep a squeegee in the car and wipe down the rear window as needed in the morning.

    That Ford listing is for part F5CZ... Doesn't that indicate 1995 Escort? Which should be the same for all second generation Escorts...
