    Default Washer bottle

    Anyone managed to remove the washer fluid bottle without removing the front bumper?
    Cheers Pete

    The whole thing? Not sure if it'll drop out from underneath - pretty sure it won't with all the things that are probably in the way from memory.

    Yes , the whole thing mate, reason is that my jets packed up on Monday and took the pump out today and was completely gunged up with slime etc, flushed it all through and refilled, however after leak inspection I noticed a spot of water had appeared on the seam at the bottom of the bottle, so wiped it dry and the rest of the bottle (that I could actually get to!) and after a few mins it re-appeared (may still be running down from the side of the bottle somewhere although it appears dry on the sides) so I've run some Araldite along the bottom seam just in case it is weeping , but may end up replacing the bottle at some point.
    Cheers Pete

    have been under there agian this morning and noticed there was quite a few droplets of water and would appear to be rain water as we had a hell of a downpour here early this morning and I think what's happening is water runs along the gulleys of the wings and some goes down into inner wing area where the top of the water bottle is and runs down to lowest point, hence causing the droplets, as would have happened when I was flushing out the bottle yesterday, so don't think I'll need to replace the bottle after all.
    Cheers Pete
