    Ok i i'm looking to find out how it's called the "windshield wiper fluid exit" that's how my sister in law called them.
    Because i live in Greece my m38a1 doesn't have and i would like to have for this winter after 10 years of owing it.
    I couldn't find, anywhere over the net, the slightest reference about them.

    wiper fluid squirter (where it squirts on the windshield) - I am not sure they had those on jeeps - at least none I have ever had.

    My 71 model has one. Its factory. Not sure where to get one though.

    From looking around there not available anymore and most guys say to use the TJ squirters that mount out on the hood instead of the cj model that mounts in the center of the cowl. My factory one is pretty pathetic at cleaning the windshield though as it doesn't cover enough area when it sprays.

    Agreeing with Mike, it was stock on the '71. I still have the factory nozzle somewhere, but the bag and knob are long gone.
    Good idea, going with the TJ set up.

    My Daughter's '70 (actually a mid year '69) has one also. Mounted in the middle of the cowl as mentioned. I sold off the bag and pull/push squirter pump mounted in the dash and installed a reservoir, electric pump, and switch and a relay from the local parts house and it works great! Really made a difference. I can take a pic if interested.

    Most likely going to need the "nozzle" or "squirter" from another vehicle as was said as these are getting hard to find. I know Waggy's and pickups used them too, same design but longer in the body so a spacer may be needed under the cowl to tighten the nut against.

    My '74 had a washer tank with integrated motor mounted to the fender when I bought it. There was no evidence of the rest of the system ever being installed. The tank even had the AMC emblem molded into the side.

    My '67 has one that I always assumed was stock. Bag on inner fenderwell. I bought an aftermarket resevoir with a pump in it and just plumbed it to the nozzle on the cowl.

    I used a early 80's dodge truck with slant six tank with mid 80's gm full size truck jets that mounted to the wiper arms, that I got from a local junkyard. works quite well and the jets cover the the wind shield well. I ran the hoses through the holes that held the vacuum wiper moters to the windshield frame.

    PO had a couple of windshield washer installed. They were plastic. And broke down over the years.
    I found these from a Mini Cooper site. They work great.

    Guess that's why I didn't think they came on jeeps - I don't normally work on anything that 'new' far enough to get to the wiper Squirters :)

    I've never missed not having squirters, wipers are marginal at best anyway. Always thought they might make things worse.

    I've got good wipers and the washer and never use either. A good application of RainX is all you need.

    Not around here with the road grime and dirt thrown up. On the trail in muddy conditions they come in handy, and at the beach with the sand fluff thrown up you really need them.

    Mandatory here if you drive on the streets in the winter.
    I used a reservoir, pump, and nozzle from a mid 80's RX7. Works good.
