    water bottle leaking

    Hi all,

    As above my water bottle is leaking any ideas?

    i put water in to the brim and its gone within 24 hours. theres no obvious leak that i can see but its really hard to get to.

    Does anyone know how to take it out easily?

    are there any pipes that often corrode over time etc?

    any help appreciated! im getting annoyed by the beep every time i start my car

    cheers

    Normally out of the washer jets in the bumper. My mate had this, leaked like crazy - water bottle empty after a few hours.

    I whipped off the bumper, blocked off the washer jet pipe.

    Job done.

    soz for the the late response.

    so the jets behind the bumper u say? are they for the headlight washers then? if so id rather fix them than block em off.

    a bit of bathroom sealant could do the job couldnt it?

    cheers lads!

    I had the same problem with mine,but it was clearly apparent that the leak was coming from below the headlight washer. Took the bumber off and could see it was the washer jet itself. In the end all i needed to do was push the cylindrical jasher jet module together and it snapped back together. This was in the winter mind, and im guessing the water had frozen and pushed it apart. Good luck.....
