    Hi guys,

    My windscreen washer fluid leaks away very quickly on my S3 so maybe a split washer bottle.

    Are they easy to remove from engine bay?

    Thanks

    Steve

    Yes I did it in an hour. There is a guide online google search it. Just remember to connect hoses back correctly ,for me to do this I had front bumper off and fiddling around in drivers side wing. All in all 2 hours tops. Bumper removal guide on here too.

    Hi mate,

    Do you get a puddle underneath the car anywhere when you pull the washer stalk? There are a few places the hose that carries the fluid can break and leak. Either under the airbox, in the passenger side rear wing or on the rear wiper motor inside the boot trim

    i did mine and didnt take the bumper off.
    The seals on the bottom of the motors were gone.
    check the pipe under the scuttle tray first, they usually pop off
