The 2002 model year marked the first redesign of Honda's compact SUV, the CR-V. This redesign made the CR-V's body rounder and gave it a more sleek appearance. The 2002 CR-V came fitted with high-end features for a small SUV, such as cruise control, air-conditioning, AM-FM-CD stereo system, power windows and intermittent wipers. Washer fluid spray through two hood-mounted nozzles helped keep the windshield clean on the go. Over time, dust, wax and other debris can clog these nozzles to a point that replacement is the only option.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open the CR-V's hood and locate the washer fluid hoses running across the underside of the hood. Trace the hose until you locate the failed washer nozzle.

  2. 2

    Pull the hose from the nozzle with a slight twisting motion.

  3. 3

    Press the locking tabs on the under-hood part of the washer nozzle and push the nozzle upward to free it from the hood. Lower the hood and pull the nozzle completely out of the hood.

  4. 4

    Line the new nozzle up with the hole in the hood with the sprayer opening facing toward the windshield. Press the nozzle downward until it snaps into place.

  5. 5

    Open the CR-V's hood and press the windshield washer hose back into the under-hood side of the nozzle. Close the CR-V's hood.
