I need to replace the driver's side headlamp washer cover on a 2005 Volvo XC90. In checking the sprayer mechanism that the cover mounts to, I find that the plastic mounts on the mechanism are broken, so i ordered a new mechanism. It has an O-ring seal around the tube end. How do I change out the old mechanism for the new one? Thanks for any help!!

    YOU MUST REMOVE THE FRONT BUMPER SKIN TO ACCESS THIS MECHANISM.YOULL FIND TORX SCREWS AT THE INNER PART OF WHERE THE TIRE AND BUBPER MEET ON BOTH SIDES OF CAR OF CAR.AND SIX PUSH BUTTON TABS AT THE TOP OF THE BUMPER WHEN YOU OPEN HOOD.REMOVE HEADLIGHT HELD DOWN BY TWO METAL PINS AT TOP OF HEADLIGHTS. AND PULL HARD ON OUTER EDGE OF BUMPER, WHERE TIRE AND BUMPER MEET.
