SOURCE: windshield washer reservoir tank is leaking how do I replace?

You must remove from it's mount and empty out any fluids that is in tank.fill the tank with water and locate where the leak is coming from. wash tank a few times and the let dry upside down. Get some sand paper (80  grit course) and sand area where leak is, clean area with a vacume or clean rag.you can buy a 2 stage epoxy that comes in an injection form and squeeze it out on a pc of paper and then get a q-tip and mix the 2 components together, fill the crack or hole generously with the q-tip, if you have to,let dry for 24 hours and mix more and put more on. let dry another 24 hours, replace tank back in it's place and you've solved your leak. (epoxy does wonders if its used properly.

SOURCE: windshield washer fluid reservoir - MB ML 350

right where the lines connect to reservoir, has little black seals that leak. I recommend removing reservoir, empty it out, then use RTV silicone and place it between seals and reservoir. Let it dry for FULL day. than reinstall.

SOURCE: Windshield washer reservoir leaks.

Typically, on a GM truck, there are two 10mm bolts at the top of the reservoir which hold the reservoir to the fenderwall. Remove these bolts, lift straight up on the reservoir, and the tabs cast into the bottom of the reservoir will slip out of their slots in the fenderwall. Remove the reservoir only so far as required to locate and unplug the washer motor wiring harness. The motor sometimes does not come with the replacement reservoir. There are 2, 3, or 4 bolts which hold the motor to the reservoir, and there is a gasket between the motor and the reservoir body. Remove, retain, and re-use these parts on the new reservoir. Check the fluid line near the motor for cracks, and shorten enough to re-use if necessary.

How to take off the windscreen washers on a mk4 golf to unblock... I have **** in my reservoir and think it has got into the pipes Grateful if you could help


Try this, take a needle and poke it into the washer hole where it would come out to the windshield. A lot of times debris gets caught there instead if the lines. This normally works.... Good luck!

How to change the windshield washer spray nozzles?


They may not need replaced as often times sediment in the windshield washer reservoir will clog them. Try taking a pin or needle and simply clean out the holes and see if that helps first.

WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID IS NOT WORKING


lets start with the basics. check your owners manual for the location of the fuse or relay, and mke sure thats good. if its bad, replace it. if its good, then get a safety pin( trust me), and go to where the spray nozzle is( where fluid comes out to spray on the windshield) and stick the point of the pin in the nozzle end( they do clog up from dirt and dust from the road). now try it. works, great, if not. then lets move on to the line. undo the line (rubber hose) at the back of the nozzle, and try it. if fluid comes out of the line, then you need a can of compressed air(any office supply store) and really blow out the nozzles. if no fluid then reconnect the line and go to the reservoir. undo the line at the pump motor, and try it, if it works, then you will need to replace the rubber line. if it does not work, sorry to say you have to pull the reservoir, and replace the motor. you and a friend can do these checks in about 10 minutes. This is how we test at the body shop. hope this helps, and please rate
