here's the challenge: you would like to hit the switch over to the left of the driver (chrome slide switch) and have two things happen as a result - the washer pump squirts some cleaner onto the windshield and the wipers go on automatically for 2-3 wipes.

Since the stock wiper motor is activated by vaccum, the hybrid switch described might do it, being both electric and vaccum.

The factory vaccum switches I have seen (the ones to the left of the driver) all leaked like sieves and only made the system worse, when it could hardly stand any loss of vaccum to begin with.

So no small challenge but definitely a place where a combination of determination and modern parts might make for a decent system.
