Default Headlight Washer Caps

Hello all,

I just recently got back into the Audi world after a long hiatus due to the sale of my 1993 S4, with the purchase of a 1999 A8.

I am looking for a set of caps for the headlight washers, does anyone know someone/somewhere that I can find a set? Painted or not isn't an issue, just would like to fill these holes.

Thanks in advance folks!

Although they are called "cover caps", they're actually exposed spray nozzles (see pic below of 99 A8).

2000 and up (Facelift) have flush mount pop-up nozzles.

If it helps, here's a good part # source for A8 >>

So what is actually holding a cap attached to the bumper on facelift cars?
Some kind of spring or?part number?
Could not figure it out so i glued it but it fell off.

They pop up under hydraulic (washer fluid) pressure and return under spring tension. The caps are supposed to be attached (snap on?) to the top of the "piston".

I think i figured it out.I have this spray nozzle missing from my passenger side.These 2 little pins on the side of the sprayer are holding the cap.
