    how easy is it to take out?

    mine seemed to have cracked when i bumped into someone after skidding on icy.

    if anyone can advise please.

    You need to remove the wheel arch liner, or at least partially remove it and bend it back. Then the bottle just unbolts.

    will it require me to take the wheel off or can i get away with leaving the wheel on?
    do you know how many bolts?

    thanks

    i left the wheel on from memory.

    iirc its 3 bolts that hold the washer bottle in, and about a million screws, poppers and fixings holding the arch liner on.
