Hard top rear wiper

Stupid rear washer hose. Damn thing came undone who knows how long ago. Just noticed it on the way home tonight when I hit the window juice and heard it splashing all over the cargo area. I guess I can stop looking for the source of the leak causing that moldy smell in the back.

Yea. Had that happen to me. The rancid washer fluid smell went away after a few weeks. It's happened to many of us.

I did the mod on mine (25.00 Rear Washer Hose Fix) with the Quick Disconnect from McMaster-Carr no leaks and works like a charm. Many Thanks to John L. for his Write-up.

I use one of those spring loaded hose clamps, works great. Just use some long nose pliers to put it on and take it off.

Very common Dan, lol, mine used to do it, my wife's does it, or used to, I just used a med sized black zip tie, hard to get in there but I pulled it out just a little, zipped it and pushed it back on, no issues at all now.

+1. I did that to mine about a year ago, and it's still working great. I just cut the zip tie off when I put the soft top on for the summer, and put a new one on when the hardtop went back on for the winter.

Sure, you shouldn't need to fix a brand new vehicle, but when it's this cheap and easy to fix I don't get too upset.

So funny to see the common mishaps for all of us JKers. I put my hardtop back on late spring early summer and had the damn thing pop off a couple times before putting a zip tie on it. Never thought anymore of it. Just funny to see I'm not the only one.

Yup. Seems pretty common.

The wife of one of the guys I wheel with has a JK rubi. She had the same thing happen one time when we were heading out of town. When she hollered to him that he would have to fix it for her, I simply handed him a small zip tie and showed him my "fix"
