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.

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.

the only solution acording to the manual is to replace the reservoir... not much to say about that, u do have the option to patch it...be careful with the product u use to glue that patch.

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.
