    Fellas,

    I think my 5LTR can has a hole in it, i am not honestly sure yet, but everytime i fill it up it takes ages, but it seems to empty out really quick, within about a week or 2, i am sure this is not normal coz i dont use it that much but i do use it.

    But if it is cracked how long and easy is it to replace with a new one, i am guessing GSF is a good enough place to get one of these from right, how much am i looking too.

    Thanks
    Spencer

    easy way to tell if its got a hole in it is to fill it then dont use it then check the level.

    mine empties quite quick in the winter ( remember headlamp washes as well as screen). Also I just fixed the rear wash wipe one as the pipe had come unclipped under the air filter box pissing water everywhere :(

    Thats a good idea, my rear washer doesnt work either, it might be the same problem i need to have a look properly.

    mine empties in a week or so, even if i dont use it. Been meaning to have a look if its a split pipe etc, but it looks like a bit of a pain to get at.

    I thought the seal goes between the pump and resevoir.
