Is the 1969 headlight washer solenoid rebuildable?

I broke off one of the electrical connections when I was wrenching on my car. It was probably already stressed from being improperly packed when shipping but I finished it off. Also it did not work at all when connected.

Re: Is the 1969 wiper washer solenoid rebuildable?

Replacement parts should be available from aftermarket and maybe dealer. The down side is the aftermarket plastic parts are black not white like OEM. It might be possible to buy replacement pump and just use the electrical from it with the metal and plastic from the original. If you take the 4 screws holding nozzles on out you can push in and rotate the plunger 1/4 turn to remove it if necessary.

Not rebuildable, the coil wires and spade connectors are molded into the plastic case. I have extra repro ones, PM me if interested.

Funny that the edit of the subject isn't on the first two replies. I was assuming the washer pump when I posted my reply.
