Does anyone have the issue of their washer fluid hose popping off when pressure is applied to wash the rear window? I am curious if anyone has a quick fix for securing the hose to keep it from popping off and spraying the entire inside of the vehicle. Anything I can think of there is not enough room to fasten it, and I still want it to be a quick disconnect for easy removal of the top.

^ haha... my two thoughts exactly. Either a small hose clamp or a small zip strip pulled tight w/plyers.

Or, is there enough were you can cut 1/2" off the end and get a fresh start so its not wore out?

It's funny I have the opposite problem with mine. I have to use pliers to squeeze the tabs together to get it to come apart when removing the hard top.

my 2007 had a similar problem. it would come off occasionally. i solved it by buying a 2012:whistling:. but its probably cheaper with a small zip tie or clamp.

You could also try one of the constant tension hose clamps the kind that you don't tighten with a screw driver, you just squeeze the two sides together to open it and let go to close it.

That was exactly my justification for ordering the new 2012. Darn rear washer hose kept coming off and hosing-down the rear cargo area on the 2007. I did try wrapping a short piece of stainless safety wire around the hose then twisting it tight which worked quite well. Excited about the new BFG which should be here next week!

I will try cutting it off to start with, if that doesnt work I think I will try the constant tension clamp. I can't get a hose clamp in there and a zip tie is a good idea but very hard to get off once it is really tight. Thanks for the ideas!
