My washer fluid resevoir was leaking, was frequently filling it up not
realizing this. Last time I filled it up I was out again within a few
days, filled it up and took a look at the hose going from the washer
fluid pump to the spray nozzles and noticed a small white filter
mounted inline with the 1/4" rubber hose. The fluid was leaking from
the plastic housing. I tried removing the filter and it disintegrated
in my hands. I have called Ford, looked everywhere on line and went to
a couple of national parts stores, nobody stocks them.
Any ideas? I removed the hose and filter from the spray nozzles to the
washer pump and replaced them with just one piece of hose, so I have
windshield washing ability during the winter months.
I was just surprised that I could not find a replacement filter
anywhere, not that it is causing any driveability problems or anything.
