They snap in alot easier than they come off. You have to be carefull not to dent the hood around the nozzle while you're trying to pop it off. You might want to try and push one tab at a time, they are located at the front and rear of the nozzle below the hood skin. If you're putting on the ones fastened by a nut you might as well bore a 3/4 or 1" hole directly below the nozzle then use the hole to push the tabs in to remove the OEM nozzle.
I disconnected the hose and shot air threw the line and threw the washer fluid tank. Then I shot air threw the nozzles and they were both clogged ,but in the process I blew the hoses off them now when I hit the button it just goes all underneath my hood. oops :| Drilling a hole huh? I might try that.

That's what you get for being a ND fan! LOL!! J/K. Did you put them back on yet?
When I did mine a while back, I actually took the hard road doing it. I sawed through my hood a little to allow my hands to reach the stems to put the nuts on the actual nozzle. Luckily the stock ones were just clips, so they were easy to get rid of. But to add different style ones was a lot of hassle, yet well worth it.
Yeah, doing the nozzel lights was a pain in the ass. I got a drill bit that was big enough to go through the top of the hood to the engine bay area, but I had to hack at it a little bit just to get my socket to fit in there to tighten up the nut.....still have to file down the metal from drilling it, but I think it was worth the trouble. Running the wires were a pain also, I ran the wire from my switch under the dash and zip tied them, ran them through the fire wall area on the fender, put the ground wire on that screw right next to the hood arm, ran the power wire through the rubber thing that is under the hood, good to go. Worth it in my eyes. I am the ONLY and I mean ONLY second Gen in town with them DO IT!!!
Guys take a piece of dental tape and make a loop off it 6 or 8 inches long.
Reach in with a long screwdriver and put pressure gently lifting on the body of the nozzle.
Pull the dental tape under the back (window) side of the nozzle and pull forward.
This will pop the little tab and the the back of the nozzle will come out of the hood.
Put something under the lifted edge that will not scratch the hood.
Do the same thing with the dental tape on the front of nozzle. You may have to wiggle or lift on it to 'catch' little barb on that side.
The front will pop right out and you can twist the nozzle off the hose.
Disconnect the hose at other end and feed it in the hole already on the nozzle when replacing.
