MVP in auto repair and Volvo DITPG

I think this applies across industries and lines of work - but I got the windshield washer nozzles on the E28 to work as a Minimum Viable Product.
Turns out I just needed to shoot some compressed air through the hoses after putting on the new pump. I disconnected the main line from the pump to the T fitting on the hood, blew air through it a couple of times and definitely got some gunk out. Did the same from the T to the nozzles and air was coming out, so I hooked it all back up to check.
The spray comes about 1/3 of the way up the windshield, so I'll call it an MVP. I want to go in and replace all of the hose eventually, but after looking at the connection from the hose to the nozzle I decided that was a problem for tomorrow man.
The hose has lost all elasticity from years under the hood, I'm afraid I'll just break the nozzle getting it off. Maybe I'll cut the hose just off the nozzle and figure out a way to clamp a new hose over it.
Any other auto repair MVP's out there recently?
Bonus minty looking Volvo DITPG for your time.

@houstonrunner I’ll bet that’s pretty much as good as they came from the factory.

@houstonrunner I had the same thing happen to my washer hose, luckily it's sectioned so I didn't have to re plumb the whole thing. I stuck on some vacuum tube I had lying around.
