Question How Hard to Add IC Sprayer to Wagon?

So I would like to add an IC Sprayer to my 04 Wagon, but what stock parts woudl I need form Subaru and what kind of money are we talking about? I found a guy selling the Subaru IC Sprayer bottle (I would like to use a seperate bottle so I am not squirting washer fluid on my intercooler) and noticed Subie Gal has the nozzles and switch. How many nozzles would I need and what else to get this together? Next anyone have any install instructions?

Problem is I am in Texas, so it dips below here during the winter months.

I just used the rear pump of the washer bottle for the IC sprayer. You will run the risk of the water freezing if you use a seperate tank anyway?? Plus in the cold temps you should not require spraying it with the washer fluid.

But you need two sprayers with hoses, the pump, tank and a switch w relay. The easiest switch is just push if you want it to spray (like your wipers) but using a relay allows you to push it once and it stays on for 5-10 secs.

using regular water will clog up the line/nozzle over time.

I'm glad I live in so.cali and I don't have to deal with freezing temps.

I mounted all of my stuff in the back. I tried a few tanks, but decided to make my own from a couple of 3" PVC pipes. Since I have a strut tower brace, I sling the tank from it and secure it. I've got a manual ball valve on the tank. Put on a quick (dis)connect end for the hose from the tank and the one from the pump.

Do the newer models still have those storage bins in the rear floor? I plumbed and wired up my pump and keep it in the small bin on the right side of the floor. I poked the hose and wiring through the crack along the edge of the floor and under the rear seat, and up to the front of the cabin through the passenger-side doorsill channels. (You'll have to remove some plastic trim panels, piece of cake though.) Then just run the hose through one of the access holes in the firewall. (I removed the glovebox and drilled a hole in the white plastic filter panel, used gasket sealant, and ran my hose out through the vent channel underneath the wipers. I cut a small "x" in the large, rubber plug to run the hose through. This kept it higher in the engine bay and away from the exhaust components a little better.

I just hooked up a toggle switch next to my cruise control button.

All of the scoop splitters are already machined to accept the STi sprayer nozzles, and you can buy them (three holes, three nozzles) for about $9 apiece.

Set up something similar and the tank can be removed in seconds to free up storage room while leaving all of the plumbing and wiring intact. Make your tank as big or as small as you want.

Hopefully I haven't been too confusing or long-winded.

Best of luck.

It's much easier than it seems.

Hagwag02, your right it does not sound that bad. Looks like I can get a lot of the parts form www.allsubaru.com. Jamie if you are out there your advice would also be helpful.

Okay so I would need three of these:

86636FA120 Water Spray Nozzle, STI

One of these:

83001FE020 Water Spray Switch - STI

And while I am at it this:

86661FE020 Water Spray Bottle/Tank, STI

Now anybody got picks of installing the STI bottle and hooking up the stock switch. Again this is going into a 2004 Wagon.

There are two different Subaru switches. One is a "push, hold, and release" and the other is a "push, then push again to release". I suppose the timer relay would be wired to the former.

If you are going to use the Subaru switch, you will find that you will have to either solder the wires to the switch leads in the rear or obtain some smaller female fittings to hook onto the switch leads.
