Great Wall V240 2010 dual cab. There's acrack somewhere in the window washer bottle but the bottle is situated behind the left hand guard under the bonnet. Any ideas on how to get to it. Pete.

All I can suggest is to go in through the wheel arch. SAFELY jack the car up onto axle stands. Remove the wheel on that side. Remove the wheel arch liner. You should be able to see how to remove the bottle from there. The leak might just be a loose pipe or a loose washer pump/motor so check those first.

I have a rover75classic 54 it is leaking water when it rains on near side is it a useual fault

Had same problem. Lift up rear seat on drivers side and you will see a steel tube running from the wheel arch under the seat. Tube is about 2 inches wide. If this is rusted underneath then water is getting via the wheel arch open end of the tube. It runs into the rear foot well and forward into drivers footwell, also runs under rear seats and into the boot! I removed the rear drivers side wheel, pulled away the plastic wheel arch lining then sealed the hole where the wiring leads through this pipe. Covered it with plastic flashing replaced the wheel arch lining. Took 30 mins to repair, took a week to dry the carpet, rear seats and boot carpet.

Where is the water container for the washers?? can see where you fill it but the pipe seems to run into the wheel arch

that is correct, that is where ford puts it, unless you have a leak, or it doesnot work, all you need to do is fill it and forget it.

Leaking inside the car everytime it rains

There is probably a drainage hole underneath the cowling under your windshield wipers. They're supposed to allow the water to drain out into the wheel well. See if the passengers side is plugged up. Collected water has to go somewhere and it will always find a place.

I need to replace the washer bottle for my 03 ford mondeo

If you still need to do this .... It's a plastic bottle mounted under the front wing on the drivers side of the car. Access to it is from underneath the wheel arch. Removal of the wheel will make it easier. You need to remove the protective liner that stops the majority of water & road dirt from hitting the underside of the wing and thus protects it somewhat from corrosion and damage. This shield is held in place by about 8 screws. The washer bottle itself is secured to the bodywork by 3 bolts. The washer's water pump (maybe 2 pumps if you have the headlamp cleaning system) is mounted in the side of the bottle and is just a push-fit through a rubber seal
Hope this helps

How to change screen washer bottle on a bmw e90 330d 2006 as it is leaking after all the frost. Seem to be in wheel arch?

to access the windscreen bottle, you have to take off the front wheel, wheelarch and dicconnect filler tube. Using 10 mm socket take off one bolt holding the bottle. To reinstall take off side indicator to make it easy for you.
for E90 model it is normal to have leak when the bottle is full. the water is coming out from breather on top of bottle. but if the fluid is complately drain, then there's something wrong with it.

Windscreen washers

Fords have a common problem with their washer pumps. for the last 12 years ford have fitted a plastic mesh over the inlet to the washer pump, this blocks up with the build up of crystalized washer fluid. fords official protocol says to use a small sharp object the size of a pencil to peirce the mesh and allow the flow of water. Also most washer bottles can be accessed via the front wheel arch. simple undo the fixings and pull the innier plastic wheelarch out the way and pull the pump out of the bottle. they are never fixed in just wedged in.
