under the wiper assembly. must remove wiper arms and water cowl. then you will see the valve with 3 hoses connected to it, that is the valve to replace. you have to remove the whole wiper assembly to access the valve.

there are 4 plastic screws on the cowl. they might break when you pull them out...no big deal though. pull up on the cowl firmly there are clips that hold down the cowl. pull from driverside then work your way down to the passenger side. there is also a drain hose attached to the cowl that you will see when you lift it up. remeber to reattach that. just pull up firmly and the clips will release nothing important to break so give a firm pull upwards.

no need to disconnect battery. the hoses are held on by " C " clip type clips. Iuse a 90 degree pick or radiator hose remover tool to unclip the clips they are in a sort of tight spot. then pull the hoses out of the valve. install the hoses to the new valve by just firmly pushing them in. lube the o- rings with vasoline or coolant to help with install. there will be an electrical plug to plug in also. thats it....then pour in coolant...you will only loose maybe a quart or so of coolant.. then run the defrost and purge out the air. install wiper assembly and cowl....dont forget to attach the rubber drain hose to the cowl. done....
