Leaking washer bottle - how to access it

Post by DaiB » Sat Apr 20, 2019 10:00 pm

My washer bottle is leaking so needs to be replaced. Does anyone know how it can be removed as it's buried in the engine compartment. It looks like removing the inner wing panel behind the right wheel might give access once the wheel is removed?

There was a member previously who had work done by the dealer and I seem to recall they went at it through the wheelarch by removing the liner.

Presumably you are out of warranty?
Where is the leak appearing in relation to the vehicle on the ground?

Wheel off, Wheel arch liner out (11 fixings), then it should be fairly obvious (don't forget to unbolt the filler neck under the bonnet).

It turns out he had a leaking headlamp washer, not the bottle and posted on the existing thread.
