Has anyone replaced a wiper washer motor on a 2008 Boxer and how easy/hard is it?
I can tell one end of a spanner from the other but l am not as supple as l once was so a brief description will help me decide whether to tackle it or not.

I recall removing and replacing mine but I don't remember buying s new one. It may be that it was gummed up with fluid that had mostly evaporated. It was just a snap on and off as I recall. But that was on an X250

Thanks for that.

This video takes you through removal and reinstatement. Think its the right model Boxer.

I haven't watched the whole video but it looks like windscreen WIPER motor renewal. Washer pump replacement is much simpler. 😀cake

You can see the pump easily and you don’t need any tools. There’s no reason to remove the reservoir, the washer pump is just a push fit into a grommet in the reservoir, the electric connection is a simple plug, just be careful not to drop the rubber grommet as it’s only a push fit fixing.
