    There are two different bottles depending on the age of car, you've got the wrong one, and they're not compatible as the signal is reversed.

    Ariel is part of the rear window on a saloon.

    No, you need the correct tank. On the early cars, they go closed circuit when the tanks empty, on the new cars they go closed when its full. They're not interchangable, you need the right type.
