Wiper Fluid Sprayer/Hose

The wiper fluid sprayer has come disconnected from the hose on the passenger side on my 2002 SLK320. I've taken off the black panel, and can see that there is a plastic "T" that the spray connects to. It doesn't appear to be broken or cracked from what I can see. But, the sprayer pops out of the "T" with the slightest amount of pressure from the wiper fluid.

Has anyone had this happen? Can I just replace the "T"? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Plastic tubing will swell/harden with heat and age so that it does not fit tightly on T. You could use a tiny clamp on the hose/T or you can buy T's the right size at a very good hardware store or Home Depot. An alternative if you have some slack with the tubing you can try cutting off 1/2 inch or so which will give you fresh bond. There is also a little marine epoxy (hardware store) on the T/hose joint. Lots of ways to skin this cat.....

Agree with the above..could try a small bundle tie but a small hose (screw) clamp would be best. May be time to replace the hoses, if this one has slipped it's brothers may follow shortly...any sign of cracking from age?
