Exclamation Window Washers/12v Power/Console Buttons

Hey, I'm kinda new to this forum so bare with me...


I have been given a couple of accessories for my Punto (Mk1 T-Reg, 60s, 5-Dr)

One is number plate screw-lights, and the other is window washer lights.
both are high power LED driven, and are powered by 12 from the car. Only problem is I would like to be able to switch them on/off from within the car when I dont want to use them.

On the center console in the punto there are several buttons that are unused, to the left and right of the rear window heater, and fog light buttons. These would make perfect switches for this sort of application.
Has anyone ever tried this or can anyone give me any details on using these spare buttons for this kind of thing?

Secondly, Does anyone know how to (or should I say WHERE to) route a cable from the front (engine compartment) of the car to inside the car (dash area) I have found a couple of places where cables flow today but have been unable to route my own cables thus far. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, does anyone know how to remove the window washer jets?

Thanks in advance for your help!

welcome to the forum
if you are realy realy sure you want to put them on and loose all your street cred you could go to scrappers an get the switches off an sx but cut the loom off aswell these have a front fog switch you can use,

for the hole for wires see this thread ..

Any ideas on the washer jets tho? How they are held to the bonet and can be removed?

Washer LEDs are a no-no imo, they serve no purpose.

Errrrmmmm yeah!!!

The washer jets on the mk2 just push out after depressing a securing tab (Should be similiar on a mk1) Then disconnect the fluid hose etc.........

The LEDs aren't to my taste either, but who cares??
