SOURCE: windshield washer reservoir tank is leaking how do I replace?

You must remove from it's mount and empty out any fluids that is in tank.fill the tank with water and locate where the leak is coming from. wash tank a few times and the let dry upside down. Get some sand paper (80  grit course) and sand area where leak is, clean area with a vacume or clean rag.you can buy a 2 stage epoxy that comes in an injection form and squeeze it out on a pc of paper and then get a q-tip and mix the 2 components together, fill the crack or hole generously with the q-tip, if you have to,let dry for 24 hours and mix more and put more on. let dry another 24 hours, replace tank back in it's place and you've solved your leak. (epoxy does wonders if its used properly.

REMOVAL

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. Remove the engine fresh air housing inside the engine compartment.
  3. Disconnect the washer hose at the in-line connector forward of the cowl grille so that the in-line connector remains with the washer hose from the fresh air plenum.
  4. Disconnect the washer hose from the hose clip located on the front fender side shield.
  5. Remove the filler tube screw.
  6. Hoist and support vehicle on hoist or jack stands.
  7. Remove the right front wheel and tire assembly.
  8. Disconnect the left right front wheelhouse splash shield and move aside.
  9. Drain washer fluid from the reservoir and into a suitable clean container. This can be done by disconnecting the windshield washer hose from the front (outboard) washer pump and allowing the washer fluid to drain into a container through a temporary jumper hose connected to the front washer pump.
  10. Disconnect the electrical body harness connectors to the washer pump motors and the fluid level sensor. Slide the red lock on the connector to the release position, then, depress the black tab and pull the connector off the pump or sensor.
  11. Remove the two reservoir mounting screws.
  12. Disconnect the reservoir from the body mount by raising the reservoir upward slightly and then down so that the reservoir filler neck and front washer hose pull through the opening in the front fender side shield.
INSTALLATION

  1. Push filler neck and front washer hose through the opening in the front fender side shield. Connect the reservoir to the body mount by lowering the reservoir down.
  2. Install the two reservoir mounting screws. Torque screws to 8.5 - 11.3 Nm (75 - 100 in. lbs.) .
  3. Connect the electrical body harness connectors to the washer pump motors and the fluid level sensor. Slide the red lock on the connector to the closed or locked position.
  4. Assure that washer is properly routed to prevent pinching and possible inoperative washers.
  5. Connect the left right front wheelhouse splash shield and move aside.
  6. Install the right front wheel and tire assembly.
  7. lower vehicle from hoist or jack stands.
  8. Install the filler tube screw. Torque screw to 8.5 - 11.3 Nm (75 - 100 in. lbs.) .
  9. Connect the washer hose to the hose clip located on the front fender side shield.
  10. Connect the washer hose at the in-line connector forward of the cowl grille.
  11. Install the engine fresh air housing inside the engine compartment.
  12. Connect the battery negative cable.
  13. Verify system operation.

SOURCE: remove windshield washer reservoir

Take off the wheel well shroud. Firdt remove the front right wheel, it will be easier. Then remove the two screws holding in the tank. Remove the two electrical connectons and small rubber hose. Next (or first) grab the filler tube and twist while pulling it from the tank as it is held in by a rubber gromet. Then pull the tank forward and let it drop down. Nothing else is holding it in except the two screws. Removing the filler tube is a must!

SOURCE: windshield washer fluid reservoir - MB ML 350

right where the lines connect to reservoir, has little black seals that leak. I recommend removing reservoir, empty it out, then use RTV silicone and place it between seals and reservoir. Let it dry for FULL day. than reinstall.

Where is coolant system air bleed off for 2010 chevy aveo with ecotech engine


There isn't one. Fill the reservoir, start the engine and run it till the T stat opens. This will start to drain the reservoir. Over fill it by and inch or so. You can take it to a parking lot and run it in circles to purge air or watch the coolant level for the next few days and fill as needed.

Hi, i own a bmw x5 3.0 2005, and what i am asking about is how to fix my headlight sprays, i think they r not working


Hi mario,

Stand by the washer reservoir under the hood while someone operates the washers. The headlights must be in the on position for the sprayer to work. Attached to the reservoir will be 2 washer pumps. On pump is for the windshield washer, the other for the headlight washer. They are interchangeable for testing. The reservoir can be removed after removing the 2 black speed nuts. (use a 10mm socket and ratchet). Also make sure the grommet with screen under each pump is not full green algae. Your pump has most likely failed.

How to change the windshield washer spray nozzles?


They may not need replaced as often times sediment in the windshield washer reservoir will clog them. Try taking a pin or needle and simply clean out the holes and see if that helps first.

2005 chevy aveo brake light comes on when i shift... why?


your brake fluid is low. I have a 2005 aveo that i took to dealer under warranty and told them the clutch didn't feel right and the brake light kept coming on. they told me they have not seen either issue i complained about charged me 700 dollars in labor and rental fees and sent me on my way. I then proceeded to take it to the used car dealership i bought it from and they bled the clutch and said they got alot of air out when chevy told me they didnt get any. Anyway about 3 weeks later the light was on steady and the clutch began acting funny again. I bled the clutch myself this time and didnt check the fluid level or i would have caught the next dangerous part. On the 2005 chevy aveo hatch back i have with a 1.6 5 speed shares one reservoir for brake and clutch fluid. I was driving along one day down a 12% grade about 2 mile long stretch and my brakes failed. I filled the brake fluid reservoir at first chance i got considering my arm was sore from operating the hand brake for 6 miles or so. the light went out. It will probably come back on as did mine. the leak in my system was a check valve under the brake master cylinder. be careful until you get to fixing it.

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox and my windshield washer fluid does not work. The reservoir is full and the wipers wipe, but no fluid comes out. nothing is leaking under the car either. what else can i check...


u will need to pull the washer fluid tank out and check to see if the tank motor that pumps the fluid is getting 12 volts when the washer switch is pushed, if it is the pump will need to be replaced, if it isn't then the washer switch is defective, this switch is part of the turn signal switch.
