Removing headlight washer nozzel?

While trying out my headlamp washers I had one shoot off never to be found. I purchased a used washer setup but I just want to remove and replace the nozzle only. I know they come out but these don't seem to budge. Any ideas? I don't want to install the whole part just a nozzle.

Thanks

There's supposed to be two on each side?????

I'm missing one on each side, lol. Never even thought about that.

Yep, and hold on to your wallet. They don't just sell the nozzles. 😒

Nevermind, finally got it out 😅
As hard as it was to get one out and put back in I'm surprised I lost one. Really tight fit.

Here's a little trick....

....you can just buy this BMW nozzle and pop it in place on your Boxster.

I did.

Works great!

Here's the part:

2001-2005 BMW 325xi Headlight Washer Nozzle - Body Electrical - Magneti Marelli, Left 01-05 325xi Headlight Washer Nozzle - 1000-01227400 - PartsGeek

Here ya go:

Just pop out the "eyeball" from the BMW part and pop it into the hole on your Boxster.

Good Luck!
