No washer fluid


Probably need to remove the tire and inner wheel well liner to gain access to the tank. You might get lucky and get at the pump without having to remove the tank. Unhook the connector and pop the pump out of the rubber grommet. If tank is full, all the fluid will instantly drain out.

I need to know where to put the fluid for the rear wipers.


The same tank that holds the front wiper washer fluid holds the rear. If your rear washer is not working, it could be one of 2 things.....

1- your washer fluid tank is low. Most car manufacturers design the tank so the rear washers stop getting fluid first to remind you to fill the tank.

2- there is a clog in your rear washer system or the pump is not working. Your problem sounds like your pump is working, so first top off your washer fluid tank, then if after about 30 seconds of trying (it takes a while to get back there), try to first unplug the rear washer by scrubbing with a toothbrush and hot water. Next, follow the hose to see if it is pinched somewhere or broken.

Windscreen washer leaking under drivers side since hard frost and jets not operating but motor sounds ok, how easy to check / replace water resevoir


Procedure to change the windshield washer tank or pump on an E46.

Tools needed: 10mm spanner (in toolkit), small-medium flat blade screwdriver

Undo the 10mm nut, highlighted in the red circle. This is the only fastener holding down the washer tank. Lift the tank up about 4", allowing you to unclip the black plastic heatshield around the washer pump. This is where you need the screwdriver, to lift the securing tab from the washer tank (yellow circle). You can actually pull out the complete washer pump from the tank. Just gently pull up, it is a friction fit.

Now unclip the washer level sensor plug (green circle). This clip is a little difficult to figure out. I pulled it hard and it came off. Taking a closer look at it once it was off, I couldn't quite see how to unclip it from its securing catch.

At this point you have removed the washer tank. The two tabs at the bottom of the tank fit into recesses in the body work, in order to secure the tank. There is a filter screen in the tank, where the washer pump plugs into the tank (blue circle). Just pry this up with a screwdriver to remove it. I had bought a new one, just in case. You can see the fluid level sensor socket on the left side of the tank in this pic.

Now unclip the pump connector from the pump. Pinch the tab at the top of the connector. This will unclip the connector from the securing tab. Pull out the water hose from the nozzle on the pump

Replace the pump filter screen into the tank, if necessary. Plug in the new washer pump into the filter screen. Connect the water hose back onto the pump.

Position the washer tank into its approximate location and clip the sensor for the fluid level back into its socket on the tank.

Secure the heatshield back onto the tank.

Now position the washer tank into its secured position and fill with a little water, in order to test the pump out. Fasten the 10mm screw back into the plug.

My windshield water does not work


Check fuse first, then unplug the connector going into the washer tank and take a 12 volt tester and plug it into the hot side of the wire while attempting to wash your windows...does the tester come on. If the answer is yes, your pump has failed.

Rear window washers working


I have a 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser. I could hear the washer pump working but no fluid was coming out. We blew the lines with an air compressor and air came through all nozzles, that did not solve the problem. Long story short, we discovered the turbine in the pump was foaming up the fluid that was in the tank. We emptied the fluid (possibly bad batch of fluid) put straight water in the tank and the washers are now working fine. Unfortunately we dont know when the fluid was filled last or the batch number, we only know that it was the blue. I will buy new fluid tomorrow. It is unfortunate that a 1.99 bottle of fluid could cause so much problems and expenses for some. Hope this helps someone.

It is the same tank, and the tank should have two pumps on it, one for front and one for rear.

Windsreen washer wont work and its not blocked??? PLEASE HELP!!!


it is probably frozen. Can you hear the washer pump run? Park where it is warm for a while.
Don't use cheap blue water, use prestone yellow washer solvent, much better.

Try removing the plastic panel underneath/forward of the RH wheel arch, the washer bottle is there, remove the pump by pulling straight out of the bottle. There is a plug and two hoses connected to the pump. You will probably find the mesh filter is clogged, clean and try it. Some washer pumps have a valve on the side where the hoses connect, do not try to dismantle this,
