Does anyone know a source for the washer hose plastic fittings for an R170? My washer fluid leak was caused by a cracked fitting where the hose attaches to the washer pump at the reservoir. (The grommets all seem OK). The plastic fitting fits into the end of the hose and includes a plastic "C" clip to lock the hose to the pump. See image of the broken fitting at link below.

Mercedes doesn't seem to service this separately - only as part of the $150 hose assembly. Chrysler dealers service it the same way with the Crossfire (R170-based).

For now, I have shoved the hose directly onto the pump nipple. I may just add a clamp if I cannot get the plastic "quick connect" fittings separately from another source.

Thanks!

Dave
