CAI + apex scoop but without washer bottle relocation - how to plug the hoses?

I've never once used my washer bottle and have just ordered a CAI intake and apex scoop without the washer bottle relocation kit. I have no problem ditching the bottle - but I'm a little confused when it comes to what to do with the current hoses/wires. Can they all be pulled out from somewhere? Should I just cut and/or clamp the hose? Admittedly, I haven't really looked yet to see what kind of hose/wires are involved with taking out the washer bottle. Thanks!

Also, I'm good with a dremel and have no problem cutting the plastic behind the bumper for the scoop to fit, but are there definitive measurements for how much to cut off on the vertical and horizontal? I've seen a lot of pictures, but I've never seen exactly how much anyone cut off. (I'm a dentist, so unfortunately worrying about tiny details like measurements is my job and a sickness that I have to deal with...)

Thanks again!

If you didnt get the washer bottle relocation and dont want to have one just pull out the plastic frame on the bottom of your hood where the nozzles are located and remove the hoses. The frame that has the nozzles on it snaps into the hood and feels like your almost going to break it just before it pops out.

Apex Paul is also a dentist. In the instructions it will tell you how to make the cuts. You may have the remove slightly more than it tells you. Thanks for your order.

Gotcha thank you. I was actually bored today and had time so I removed the washer bottle and hose assembly from the hood - no problem at all. I wasn't quite sure what to do with the wiring plug that went to the washer pump though. I just wrapped the end in electrical tape and zip tied it up and out of the way. Is there a more permanent solution - some sort of cap to place over it? Or will what I did do the trick? Thanks again
