I have a 2016 ToyotaRav4, mice have eaten my windshield washer hose, I cannot locate the route to see where I need to repair it? Help

Asked by Aug 20, 2016 at 01:31 PM about the 2016 Toyota RAV4 LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The hose appeared to run from under the wheel well however before i pull off
anything I hoped someone knows how the hose runs so I pull out the right
thing first.  Thank you for your knowledge and most important "willingness to
help us save a few $$$"

Do you have to replace it entirely? If you can see where it is chewed or cut, just use a slightly larger diameter rubber hose to splice it back together (by sliding the damaged ends into the splice section). If you can't get to the damaged area, replace the entire length of it with a new hose and don't worry about using the same exact routing as the old hose, as long as it is secured in place with ties so it isn't flopping around you'll be fine. (you can zip tie it off to other cables or hoses

To keep the critters away put some mothballs near the vehicle or spray some Bitter Apple dog repellent around the vehicle from time to time. Bitter Apple is available at your local pet store. Critters hate the smell!! HTH. -Jim
