Nice work manikjeet & really useful on the long drives at night. What you could do now to refine the headlamp washer mod job is to get another windshield washer bottle with it's own motor. Provided you have space to mount it inside the engine bay. Connect it to a separate spring loaded toggle switch and you have independent control over the washing and you'll not empty the windscreen washer fluid unnecessarily which might be badly needed at some point of driving.

That's a bloody good DIY job! (Applause everybody!)

I agree with Sankar. That's a good way forward. And also get a bit powerful pump which will pluck out any stubborn pieces of mud from the Headlamps.
You may also try adding another pair of nozzles to compensate for the wiper. Two nozzles flushing powerful onto hot headlamps will do a lot.
As for wipers, I suspect it to be a bit difficult job.

Hi Manikjeet, Ram showed me a kit available from Hella for around Rs. 1,500/-. You may take a look at it:

@ xinome

thanks man and the next DIY is getting a separate motor and switch for the headlamp washer

@crazy driver

after installing you could just paint them with touch up paint

@zenopio

sorry didn't ans your question earlier

i didn't screw them they are stuck in bumper as the holes are a little small but if you have made a bigger hole you can just use feviquick so make it stick
