I am sure it would only be in the engine compartment. try to trace back the hoses that goes to your washers. trace them backwards and you will find the washer tank. it could be hidden near the headlights on either side and the tank is at the bottom. only the black circular cover is visible and it might be near the reservoir of the radiator. look for some black or white plastic cover with a windshield wiper icon on the top.

tnx 4 using fixya,

    i'm not sure but if you would look closely. you might be able to figure it out. another thing to look at is if it can be access by removing the tire and the fender. sometimes it is easier to remove the tire then the fender and then the tank would show up.

    ratings are important to us as answering your questions and a rating of Inappropriate would bring my ratings down. would it be fine with you sir/mam to change the rating?. i'm sure my answer to the question was not away from the topic in question.

    thank you for your consiideration,

My windshield washer is not spraying water, and not pumping. I don't know which fuse controls it and I don't have a manual. which one is it. I have a Ford 2003 f-250 super duty truck

I believe it's powered by the windsheild wipers. I would check to see if the washer pump is getting power when operating the switch, if so, the pump itself maybe bad.

I need to replace the washer bottle for my 03 ford mondeo

If you still need to do this .... It's a plastic bottle mounted under the front wing on the drivers side of the car. Access to it is from underneath the wheel arch. Removal of the wheel will make it easier. You need to remove the protective liner that stops the majority of water & road dirt from hitting the underside of the wing and thus protects it somewhat from corrosion and damage. This shield is held in place by about 8 screws. The washer bottle itself is secured to the bodywork by 3 bolts. The washer's water pump (maybe 2 pumps if you have the headlamp cleaning system) is mounted in the side of the bottle and is just a push-fit through a rubber seal
Hope this helps
