You might be able to seal it up with some RTV or something like that, but I doubt it will last long. Your best solution is to replace the tank.

Windshield washer fluid quit working on my 2011 Freightliner Cascadia


There's a few things you might want to check. First, check to make sure the washer fluid reservoir is completely (assuming you hadn't already done that). After you are certain the reservoir is full, look for any possible leaks...either the reservoir or the hoses going from the tank to the windshield. If the tank and hoses are intact, turn on your windshield wipers...then try running the pump. If no washer fluid comes out, and for this you might need another person to assist you, try running the pump again...listening to make sure the pump is in fact running. If the pump does run but still no fluid comes out, inspect all of the hoses as well as all of the outlets where the fluid sprays the windshield...it is possible that the outlets may be plugged. Some common reasons for the outlets to be plugged...debris, dirt/mud, and/or wax (has anyone recently waxed your Freightliner?). Just to be sure, using a small needle or even a wire, ensure each outlet is cleared and not obstructed with anything. After that, try running the pump again. If no luck, try removing the hoses going from the tank to the windshield. Once removed, using something like a wire coat hanger, clear each hose for any possible obstruction. Reattach hoses and try running pump again. If still no luck, I would guess the problem might be located with the washer pump itself. Before opting to replace the pump, if you believe that is the problem and the pump just doesn't operate, check all fuses and inspect any/all wiring connections.

Good luck

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.

We were told that our windshield washer filter was clogged when we reported that it was working poorly to the dealer that we bought our used 2005 Hyundai from. They fixed it, but it's doing it again, just...


sometimes there is, and sometimes there isnt, if there is one it will be on the bottom of your windshield washer tank.. sounds like they fed you a line of **** to me... and if they arent i would take it back and ask them why its doing it again, and why they didnt clean the tank out before... theres something else going on.. either a leak in one of the hoses, your low on fluid, or the pump is weak... i think they fed you a line.. hope this helps

Windshield squirters don't work. the tank is full and the orfices aren't plugged so it must be the pump. Where is it and how do I fix or replace it?


if the nozzles are wide opened the pump must be bad as you stated. the pump is located mounted to the wiper reservoir jar.

The Wiper fluid pump wont pump at all. the tube is not plugged up, I've tested it. The pump doesn't even try to pump. What do I do?


Hi:
The pump has most likely failed..They are not too expensive, and it is mounted into the bottom of your windshield washer tank. Mine failed and I checked around and got one for about $20. You just need to unplug the pump,and removed and drain the washer tank. swap out the washer pump, and reinstall and fill the washer tank..

2000 BMW 323i windshield washer fluid won't work


Had the same problem with my 2001 330ci. If not used frequently the pump will get waterlogged and allow fluid to seep into the motor. I was able to disassemble, clean, and rebuild my pump but I would recommend replacing it, it is not expensive at around $20-30 and easy to change.

The washer pump is inserted into a hole on the washer tank itself. It is an interference fit so it will pop out. If you have significant amount of fluid in the tank it will leak out of the hole. There should be one hose connected with a clamp and one electrical connector. I believe there may be a plastic shroud covering it which needs to be unsnapped.

Good luck!
