    so on the way to work this morning..no water comes out..I checked on the parking lot and the hose is cut multiple times. Looks to be eaten. Might be a rat or squirrel as I park under trees and we have a lot of them....now I gotta replace the hose. any links ? I doubt it is covered under Toyota warranty...

    yes it looks to be a small critter b/c it tried to access the water inside the hose at multiple locations..looks to be small teeth...and the hose portion that goes to the wipers is cut so gotta replace the whole hose..No clue how it got inside...

    Use silicone hoses.. I believe they don't like the smell of the silicone.

    also ordered 2 hoses connectors since the tube is cut before the firewall and chew from the windshield water tank. Will save me time by splicing.

    somewhere I saw that some folks use Peppermint oil to defray the critters under from going under the hood.
