    My washer button hasn't worked since i bought the truck. Ive heard you have to remove the wiper arms. So that involves removing the airbag and all that jazz. Has anyone ever done it? If so, how hard is it and what do you have to be careful with?

    Does the button not work or just the washer system, have you applied power right at the pump to check?

    Yes i have done everything. I know its the button because i took apart the steering column covers and i was playing with the wire that goes into the arm. Got it to work for a minute but as soon as i put the wiper in the fast position, it stopped working.
