    Hey guys n girls,

    New to this forum, have just bought an S3 an the rear washer has no water coming out of it. However it is leaving a puddle at the front I have managed to locate wear it is but I can not seem to get the water bottle out, So I can get behind it which is wear I believe a hose has either split or become disconnected. Any ideas peeps how to remove the washer bottle? I have removed both the nuts that I can see hold it in but still will not come out.....


    Thanks in advance

    its a pain! done mine, took the bumper off, light out, slackened the bits behind tthe washer bottle and really had to wiggle it about to get it out :
    there is also a bolt/stud behind the light that u have to get to and lift the bottle over.
    best bit about this was my headlight washers were not working! so done all the above and it was a fuse!! individual one for the
    them lol.
    may be some one has a better way?

    cheers mark
