    Default Washer bottle pumps

    Hi can any body tell me how many pumps should there be on a standard washer bottle for screen and rear screen wash because why I am asking is I just checked if I had the extra pump plug for the head light washer and I don't this is on a 2007 Sri but looks like there's two pumps on the bottle already one at the bottom of the bottle just from the fluid sensor and and pump at the back of the bottle is this right ?

    Both pumps are at the back of the bottle, some have levels sensors some don't but most do.

    Not with mine the sticker on the side with the part no 09186018 there's the relay in the engine fuse box for the headlight washers and there's a 10amp fuse in slot f14 which should be a 30 amp so do the standard screen bottles have 2 pumps in them If not why has this one got 2 pumps

    confused

    So I got 2 pumps on the bottle one for the front screen and one for the rear so if I changed it for the headlight washer bottle would the one pump have two outlets for both screen and the other pump for the headlights because i got the plugs already plugged into pumps but not for the headlights

    'Standard' washer bottles have one pump that does both front and rear screens - it has 2 pipes coming out of it (in the middle of the picture above).

    Cars with headlight washers have a larger washer bottle that has 2 pumps on it - one the same as the 'standard bottle' and a second one that is just for the headlights (on the left in the picture above).

    Cars with Check Control also have an electronic sensor in the side of the bottle to detect when the bottle is getting empty (on the right in the picture above).

    So by the looks of it, the bottle in the picture above is the larger bottle for headlight washers and also has Check Control.

    yes you can can change it... have you got a pic of your current bottle with the pumps.. don't think i have seen one like that the one you are describing.. I have the same bottle, pumps and sensor as seen in the pic above.
