Hi, yesterday evening, after returning from my local Porsche dealer for the 120,000km maintenance, I noticed some blue colored water under the car, passenger side, right under the headlight (Litronic). After inspection, I noticed that water very slowly drips out of the headlight washer jet. Very strange, especially that the car just left the Porsche dealer. I'll go back to let them inspect this, but in the meantime, any ideas of why/how ? Everything (headlight washer) seems to work fine. The car is a 2001 C4 coupe, manual transmission, LHD.

Thanks

Filip

Should be simple...The hose connects under the bumper cover to supply water to the H/L washer nozzles. Sounds like the clip is loose, or broken. Probably an easy fix. Doubt anything major. Not sure what the dealer di to your car, but they may have bumped it or disconnected it while doing the work to your car.

Yes, Just pop out the headlight (accessed from within the bonnet). No need to remove the bumper cover on your model. Also if more access is needed you can pop out the top section of the

wheel apron and have all you need. Good luck!

Filip,

I would wait a few days and see if there still is leaking washing fluid before undertaking a repair ( albeit not a difficult repair) as in the 120,00K service the dealer probably tried the washers to see if the pump was OK etc. and the fluid was probably some excess as a result of that dealer test. My $.02 !!

OK...it was still leaking so yesterday I openend the whole thing...and while opening it I broke part of the headlight mounting plate. I don't understand how it happenend, I followed the descriptions I found on the internet. Maybe I wasn't very careful enough :(. But okay, no big deal, I'll replace it with a new one. I then examined the headlight washer nozzle: there must be a very small leak at one of the openings, so I guess I'll have to replace the nozzle also. Looks very straightforward.

But after having removed the headlight, I noticed a cable lying around (see pictures below). I don't see where this cable should be fitted. Anybody knows where it must be attached ? I don't find anything about this cable in the workshop manual.

Thanks.

Filip
