Remove print head without power from Canon IP4500

If you have no intention of 'fixing' the one that does not power on, then just dissasemble it. If you take it apart, chances are that something will not line-up correctly when trying to re-assemble it.

To troubleshoot the power issue: I would fisrt suspect that the wall power is not getting to the power module, since, I assume, when you say both work it means you used both to run the printer with the bad print head. The power module should be deistributing the power to the rest of the printer. There will be a main circuit board that is the brains of the printer. That will need power in order to drive the print head to center when you open the top.

How do I remove the front washer bottle/pump?

The motor spins one way for front washers and the other for rear washers. Yep it sits under the offside inner wing, in a gromet, in the washer bottle bottom. You will have to partly remove the plastic inner wing liner to gain access to it. Just pull the pump away from the washer bottle and dis-connect the plug. If there is any screen wash/water left in the bottle it will run up your arm. There is a small circuit in the motor that usually blows, stopping the motor working in 1 direction. It will mean a new washer pump and, yes, they are flippin expensive. JUST ONE LINE OF WISDOM HEAR. THE BIGGEST KILLER OF WASHER PUMPS IS USING WASHING UP LIQUID IN THE WASHER BOTTLE. So you better buy some propa screen wash to tight the gitz...

On my 03 crown vic the a/c will not hold a charge. As I am charging the a/c I can hear it leaking

Get yourself a squirt bottle and fill with water and a few drops of dish washing liquid. if you have a way to hook a compressed air line to the low pressure tap port this will save you a bunch on freon cost, but pressurize the system and spray the area with the soap mixture and this will pinpoint the leak. The usual cause is old and shrunken o-rings at the pipe fittings, but can be a crack in a pipe, or accumulator, or evaporator core, or condenser, or even from the compressor itself.

The first thing you need to do, is clean the carbon out, which is probably limiting the power, because valves have a VERY hard time sealing with carbon caught between the intended sealing surfaces! So, get yourself a can of Seafoam, which you COULD pour in the gas tank ... but you could also put some in a trigger sprayer (such as an empty Windex bottle, or similar), and squirt it into the air intake (with the filter REMOVED), and have the motor revving up a little while you squirt the fluid in. DO NOT BREATH the exhaust when doing such operations! You could ruin your lungs and possibly your liver too! Use a breathing filter, NOT just a mask! You can get such at Harbor Freight Tools, pretty cheap ... a LOT cheaper than going to a hospital!

Windshields washer wont spray

If you can hear the washer bottle motor then you know its not an electrical problem, if you can see the fluid in the lines then the best thing to do would at each connection in the hose disconnect the line and operate the washes and see if the fluid comes out (also pay attention to pressure) do this until you reach the washer nozzles. The nozzles could be blocked. now you might say that you put new lines on so the nozzles shouldn't be blocked well if you think of it the previous hose could have been partly bocked thereby stopping any **** that is at the filter on the washer motor going anywhere(most modern cars have filters on the washer motors) So by putting new lines on you have allowed the **** at the motor travel all the way to the nozzles letting them get blocked.
Hope this helps.

The windshield washer will not squirt fluid out when i hit the button, & it has fluid in the bottle.

I would check the lines or the tips where the fluid comes out of. Also if you hit the button and you do not hear the hum or the motor work check the connection and wiring, If all is fine with the connection and wiring you could have a bad motor.
