Default Rats in the XV

I live in the Mountains and just bought 2015 XV Crosstrek.
Pack Rats got under the hood trying to build a nest. Chewed through some Windshield Washer lines.
Can anyone tell me what size washer line and connectors to splice it or a link to buy the correct size hose? Would it be the same set up as Impreza> I do not see any kits or parts for 2015 . Closest thing I found was a front hose for a 2013 Impreza. Is it the same? If I could get the hose size I would just fix it .. 3/32, 7/64 ???? I don't know how difficult it is to run all new hose so I may have to splice it with a connector or two. Any suggestions?

had the same issue once with the cx5. I just got plastic barbed splices that looked close and pressed the hoses in. can add small screw clamps to make sure they don't come off either.

No idea on the hose size, but go to ACE if you can and they usually are very helpful locally and allow you to test their products out in the parking lot to make sure it works properly.

My Vehicle: 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek 5MT

Based on this, I would presume that the parts are identical.

2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Premium 2.0L CVT. #86655FJ280: HOSE ASSEMBLY-WASHER UPPER

As you can see here, the part is shared between XV Crosstrek, Impreza, WRX, and WRX STI. I think you're fine using a 2013 kit, as the XV Crosstrek and the 5-door Impreza share the same chassis codes.
