How to remove a 1998 Ford Taurus LX Windshield Washer Reservoir?

Hello, My 98 Ford Taurus will not spray windshield washer fluid onto the windshield when I press the button on the steering column. However the wipers will do four cycles as they are supposed to. I think the pump may be bad, and since they are only around $15 I wanted to take the old one out and test it. However, I cannot find any pictures or videos online about this. I know where the reservoir is, but the nozzle is sticking out of a sheet metal compartment that does not look removable. I think I may have to take the passenger front wheel off. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Where is the fuse for the water pump for the window washer


A washer pump in a car's windshield wiping system moves washer fluid from a reservoir through hoses. The motorized pump pressurizes the fluid to allow it to be squirted from the hoses through nozzles onto the front and/or rear windshield of a car. The washer fluid helps windshield wipers get rid of rain, dirt, or other objects that can interfere with a driver's visibility. If your washer fluid is not being sent out when activated, the solution could simply be filling the washer system's reservoir with more fluid or cleaning the nozzles and hoses. In more severe cases, the washer pump may need to be replaced. Here are steps to troubleshoot a windshield-washer pump.

Frozen winshield washer lines


Find a heated garage, you need to thaw out he lines, or use a hair dryer if you can follow the line path. When working, drain all the fluid by holding down the spray button on the car. Go and buy he heavy duty washer fluid with the lowest freezing point you can buy and refill your washer reservoir with it. Don't add any water Most likely you had water in the reservoir and it froze.

The windshield washer pump not working, where is the pump located for me to replace it?


The pump motor is located in the washer fluid reservoir. It simply pushes into a rubber grommet in the lower end of the reservoir. It looks like the picture below.

1999 ford focus estate diesel.Windscreen washer bottle has black mildew in it.how do i get it out as it blocks the washer jets.


Remove the windshield washer reservoir and give it a good cleaning with a mixture of 1 part bleach and 3 parts water. You may be able to clean it without removing the reservoir by flushing it throughly and the cleaning it while still on the vehicle with the bleach mix. After it is throughly cleaned put a bleach mix in the reservoir and disconnect the hoses from the spray nozzles and run the washer until the hoses are clean. Use a needle to clean out the nozzles, and the connect the hoses and run the washer until the nozzles are clear. Remove the bleach mix and then fill the reservoir with a commercial windshield washer fluid. I recommend Rain X.

Windshield washer not working properly


If you have used ANYTHING beside windshield solvent in you reservor, you may have created WAXING from soap in the bottom of washer tank, which clogs pump,lines, and nozzel....take the tank out and wash it..disconnect washer hoses at nozzel and clear with compressed air along with the nozzel...if you use solvent only you may have a worn washer pump or restriction...check those and good luck.....
