I need help in finding what part is missing from my windscreen washer
reservoir. It leaks water at the bottom part. When viewed from the front
there is a cylindrical indendation, it is at the bottom there is just a
4-5mm hole there. Is something suppose to be there? Obviously yes, this is
why water falls out, but what was it, and its purpose?
Thanks fellas, appreciate some help, I'm miles from a dealership here in NSW
Australia, might have to improvise depending on your responses.
Cars with headlamp washers use a second water pump in the cylindrical
indentation, it sucks water from the hole you're describing. Cars
without headlamp washers used a rubber plug in the extra hole. In time
it gives up and disintegrates.
Thanks Rob that explains it; and youre dead right it has disintegated. Not
impressed actually! This vehicle only had 25K on the clock, and nothing but
trouble. Had a Mitsubishi Magna for 10 yrs, clocked up 170K on it with
nothing falling to pieces. The Aussie car won over the German!
Oh, wait. You ain't seen nothing yet! Wait (you won't wait long,
either)until the underhood wire harness insulation disintegrates, just
like the washer bottle plug. You will have short circuits galore.
Engineered like no other car in the world, indeed!
