Reservoir is licking out somewhere had it replaced and new cap fluid all licks out and steering is screaming every two days


You have a bad hose somewhere. I would start at the power steering pump and follow each hose to find the leak. It is probably on the high pressure side, but to be sure you will have to check both the hoses. It will either be at a connection, or at the rack and pinion unit. I would recommend that you use some power steering fluid that contains stop leak, and that may resolve your issue. You will still want to address the leak because power steering fluid is combustible and could catch fire if it gets on the exhaust manifold.

Windshield washer hose is leaking under the fender. Do I have to romove the fender to replace the hose?


Hi,
Don't spend your time removing something that is not relevant to the problem.
The hose can be pulled easily from underneath of that washer reservoir.
First thing is to find out why the washer fluid leaks, look for the cause of the leak.
If the leak is in the reservoir, just remove the reservoir and check it.
If the problem is in the hose line, remove the hose from the "Y" connection between the two washer nozzle and pull the hose from the main outlet of the tank washer.

Hope that clears up everything!
Thanks for using Fixya!

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.

Leaking windshield washer fluid resivour


I had a similar problem. My first thought was that the reservoir was leaking but there were no holes in it. Then I noticed that the fluid hose had come off the hose junction fitting (above the passenger side fender -- hard to reach without taking off the panels) and fluid was siphoning out. Later on the hose came off again, and so when I had it in the shop for some other maintenance I asked the guys to look at it. They told me there was a pressure problem with the reservoir pump which was causing the hose to disconnect. They changed out the pump and it's been working fine now.
