Changing out windshield washer hoses?

What am I missing here? How do I access the hoses in my 1996 PSD? It disappears into the firewall and I have no idea how to access the connections to the nozzle. I may as well get new nozzles while I'm at it.

I figure if I can get the nozzles out from above, I can attach the new hoses with a barb and snake them through. Is this how it is done? Though there is probably a y connection somewhere in the firewall to get to the drivers side nozzle.

Thanks! I knew it had to be something simple. Even as simple as me.
While I'm in there, is there anything else I may want to change out?

Next question. I removed all the visible screws on the shroud
from the firewall and on top. How do I remove the chrome molding from around the window? It also seems like a sealant or double sided tape is holding the shroud tight on the firewall side. Is this case or am I missing something?

You should be able to remove the cowl with the windshield moulding in place. I forget exactly how; perhaps slide it forward as you go up. You may have to raise the hood for part of it and lower it for part of it. It's sorta like the pedal box; you curse at it, finagle it this way and that, and eventually you get it loose, wondering "how'd I do that?"

You might encounter some rust on the sheet metal of the cab under the cowl; this would be a good time to prime/paint it.
