I am restoring a 1954 Bentley R Type Sport Saloon that has been stored for 23 years and have a problem. The hoses to the windscreen washers on my 1954 Bentley R Type are very old, dry and cracked. The original vacuum pump has been replaced by an electric motor which works well, but there are leaks inside (behind? in front of? ) the dash and the water ends up on the floor inside the car. I would like to replace the hoses and also the “sprinklers” but can´t see or feel them , Does anyone know how to get to them? I would appreciate advice. Thanks.

Jan,

You will have either to take the dash board out to access these parts, or employ an 18" tall mechanic.

Keep the electric pump,please!

Thanks for the advice! It certainly seems difficult. Would it be a sacrilege to drill a hole in the near end of the bonnet to install a third sprinkler and leave the original two as they are?

IT is your car, and your decision.
