W123 hood / bonnet washer nozzles

Dear All,

Does anyone know how to remove and replace the hood / bonnet washer nozzles on a W123?

I want to take them off to paint... but I don't want to kill them as I guess they are dealer only replacements (if you're lucky).

They seem to have some sort of bayonet fixing - I hope not! I do hope there is a screw thread in there somewhere...

Well - very easy - here are some photographs to make up for my inability to do a search the first time around...

ANSWER:-

Long nozed pliers => squeaze bayonet bit => push through to upper side of bonnet / hood
