    hello :icon_thumright:
    B6 A4 1.9 tdi. i fill my screen wash up, next day an inch has disappeared. next day its down to the bottom of the visible bottom.

    are there any known reasons for the leak? am i right in thinking the bottle is split in 2 so could be leaking from the joint?

    incidentally, the washers work fine but when ive topped the bottle up you can smell the fluid inside the cabin.

    help! the pink screen wash from halfords is expensive lol

    if it is from the bottle then take the pass front wheel and wheel arch liner off and you should be able to see the bottles lower half, i dont know of any specific issues with the join in the bottles but it is possible you have a split tube or something similar. Can you see a wet area on the ground below the car?

    Could be the seal on the pump or the level sensor. As swarcup says, wheel arch liner off is the way to access the lower half.
