Learn how to remove your reservoir when repairing your windshield washing system from a car repair expert in this free car maintenance video.
Hi, my name is Nathan McCullough on behalf of Expert Village. In these clips we're going to talk about some of the possible problems with your windshield washer system and some hints and tips to get better performance out of it. In this clip we're going to talk about removal of your washer solvent reservoir. Now for filming purposes, just being on the style of vehicle that we have, the reservoir goes inside here, way up in there. You won't be able to see me actually disassemble it. So I've done that off camera. What I have for you is the washer solvent reservoir. It has 2 mounting bolts which is most common and it has an alignment pin as well. This little nub is going to fit into a hole in the body and support this side of your washer solvent reservoir. The mounting bolts are here. You would generally need a large extension. It mounts way back in there and they'll have 2 bolts. What else we have on it is the washer pump motor itself and if equipped, the motor sensor. The only time you should really have to remove the reservoir is if the vehicle has been in an accident, if you hit a deer, something like that, and it cracked it. But you can just get a good look at it, I went ahead and just took this one for you.
