The nipple connecting the washer tubing through the firewall is broken on the back side. It appears to be an integral part of an electrical connector. I can't find the part number. Please help.

Looks more like either a vacuum tube, or washer fluid line, these Plices are available at All prts stores. Plastic TEE!

Please read again and look at the picture.

It is certainly in the washer fluid line. The problem is, the plastic nipple running through the electrical connector (see picture) is snapped off on the back side. In the picture you can see the white part still stuck in the tube. If you look at the connector inside the firewall, you can see the rubber tube attached from the washer fluid motor.

I need the part number of the connector gizmo to order another one.

No it's the right answer, do you see ANY wire protruding? NO! You need a new plastic TEE! Remove the broken one from both ends and rejoin them.

Okay, I'll give this one last try. Please, please, please look at the pictures -- this one is a new one from the other side of the connector

Look! A wire bundle! Surprise! Hey! Look on the left of the connector, that's the other side of the broken nipple.

Please, don't bother to apologize, all I'm asking for is the part number for the connector block that goes through the firewall. If you can't provide that to me, please say so and I'll move on.

Casey the picture I see at your first post shows a broken vac or washer nipple, not wire connector, post any others you have for the wiring connector, I will help if I can see what you are looking at. The link you posted takes me to the main page, not a picture?

Casey sorry I couldnt help you out, but if you do what I said you will get the part, If you want I will call Chevy today and get a part number and email it to you, I have never neeeded a part number to get a part. This electrical connector goes to the wiper washer motor? The shots you posted are real close up, the harness plugs in to what? If thats not good enough I will send Mike a note for your refund.

If just the vac part isnt working, you may need to just drill a hole and connect it thru the firewall with that plastic Tee.
