Topped up my windscreen washer fluid yesterday only to see most of it on the drive. At this point i was thinking here we go its gonna be expensive. I removed the right hand engine bay cover in order to get a decent look at the reservoir tank and I could see the fluid level sitting about a quarter full. It was a couple of inches above the pipe which is located on the underside of the tank.
If i tried to put anymore fluid in above this level it would act like an overflow and leak and i could see fluid appearing much lower down in the engine bay. When I say leaking it was more than just dripping. I can't see where exactly it is coming from and there is no seam or join or other pipe that i can see anywhere on the reservoir tank. Why would the level sit happily above the pipe.
If anyone has any information or an exploded drawing of the washer fluid reservoir, its mountings and pipework i would be very grateful.
I could only see and get access to two fixings on the tank itself.
