Windshield Fluid Running Out

Recommended Posts

My washer fluid light came on and i topped it up w/ fluid. I noticed that a lot of it ran onto the floor by the front tire.

Question - I don't think that would be normal? Do i have a bad seal or cracked resevoir?

Any advice on how to resolve?

Greg, I had this same issue happen to me. My remedy was to jack up the front left side and crank my wheel to the right so I could fit underneath (I'm not a real big guy so was a little easier for me) Pull back/off the plastic lining and there will be a hose in there that goes to a connection point right above the wheel well. The hose goes back on there. I've done this twice, first time it came off after a few shots of the fluid, second time I gave it a good strong push back on there and haven't had an issue since. I thought about putting a screw clamp, but haven't found one small enough and don't want to pull the wheel off. If you have a camera with flash, try snapping a few pictures so you can see a little easier before you get in there. Helped me a bit more. Hope this helps! :cheers:

I had the same problems about 3 months ago. My pump was cracked. Got it replaced and that took care of the problem.

In a few cases the pump is leaking or the tank - either way remove the wheel well liner to see for sure.
