Re: replacement of washer fluid pump, How to access tank...
What you have to do is remove the battery and then remove the battery platform(what the battery sits on) and then youll have access to the screws(3 i think) that hold it in, and then the tank should pull right out, AFTER you unplugg the two electrical wires towards the bottm(just go underneith and simply unplugg) and then once you can pull the tank up and out, just yank of the fluid tube(might be tough to pull of due to glue, but it comes apart) and the tank should be free to come out.
Any more questions just ask.

I had a 1996. It was located under the window washer fluid tank. On the drivers side front, by the head light. You actually have to take off the stabilizer that runs on top of it, to access it. You can also take the washer tank off, unscrew the pump off of the bottom of tank after you lift it out. Gunna lose all the fluid tho.
This is most likely due to the washer pump going out. I just replaced mine on my 2000 cherokee. There is a front and back pump which is located under the drivers side fender. You will have to remove the plastic corner bumper to get access to the pumps. This is an easy job to do yourself. Dont forget to have something ready to drain the fluid into when you remove the pump from the washer tank. The front pump is located below the rear pump.
If fuel is draining from the rear tank to the front, there is a tank shuttle valve located on the drivers side frame rail that is the most likely suspect to fix that.
It costs around $120 or so, and when it fails, you get that siphoning going on, and often the front tank wont pump at all.
In your case, if the engine is running rough off the front tank, you might have another issue, such as a bad in tank fuel pump, but the shuttle valve needs changed first , so maybe it might fix the other problem too!
Open the hood and locate your washer fluid reservoir. This is normally located on the driver's side of the engine bay.Locate the fluid pump. It should be underneath the reservoir.Remove the bolts holding the pump to the vehicle's frame.Remove the electo the pump.Install the new washer pump. Installation is the reverse of removal.vote for me if it helps you and you can write a testimonial also.
In 2005 Subaru moved the fuel filters to the fuel tank for both 4-cyl and 6-cyl cars. What is confusing is the statement in the owner's manual about replacement intervals; the statement actually only applies to 4-cyl cars. Even though the filter is mounted in the tank, this is still a replaceable element on 4-cyl, but not on 6-cyl. The 6-cyl filter element is part of the entire fuel pump assembly (a $300 assembly) and is not sold separately. Therefore the 6-cyl filter is intended to be a "lifetime" part, which really means it gets replaced when the fuel pump fails and the entire pump assembly is replaced.
The horn is located just ahead of the washer fluid tank in the L.H. fender. Access is by removing the extra battery tray if you have one, and then the washer fluid tank. There is a pump wire, fluid line, and a fluid level wire to be removed before the reservoir drops out the bottom ahead of the wheel well liner. Best to drain the washer fluid before proceeding.
The fuse to your washer pump is shared with the wipers themselves. If your wipers work, then your pump should. I just had the same problem. You can replace the washer pump for $20. It's located behind the front passenger's side wheel well. Just remove the passenger wheel and wheel well covering to access the washer tank, and the motor. The pump pulls off, after removing the electrical plug and fluid line. When you pull the old pump out, the washer fluid will gush out. If you want to save any of this fluid, you may want to find a cloth or something to stop the flow. The new pumps snaps in quit easily.
