    Windshield wiper nozzles,
    Trying to change out the housings with new housings. I've read VERY briefly that there is a hidden screw in the fender well? Is this true? Does it have a nut? I have found what I think to be this screw but if feels more like a pinch clip. PLEASE help.

    On my '02 (can't say if the '00 is any diff) there is a single screw (no nut) that ties the housing to the grill. There are also two plastic alignment guides.

    Remove the screw and pull/slide the marker housing straight forward.
