    E9X Windshield Washer Leak - FIXED

    I wanted to make a thread for those of you who have been ignoring your windshield washer fluid leak for a while like I did. I finally decided to investigate what the problem was and found a leak from the pump. I removed the pump last night and found this crack to be the reason behind the leak.

    I was too lazy to get it fixed but it literally took 20 minutes to get the pump out.

    Good pic I can easily identify the crack.

    Cheap plastic pieces OEM's use these days will crack but good job figuring it out.

    There are really only a few steps to getting this fixed. Only tools needed are an 8mm socket / nut driver and 10mm socket / nut driver and a bucket.

    1) remove front passenger side wheel
    2) remove rear fender liner
    3) remove 10mm bolt holding the windshield washer reservoir in place
    4) slide the reservoir forward and disconnect the hose that runs from the pump. *NOTE HAVE A BUCKET READY. REMOVING THIS HOSE WILL DRAIN YOUR FLUID
    5) Remove connector from top of pump
    6) pull straight up on pump to remove from reservoir

    Looks like you could fix that with some 5m epoxy or the like. How much is the replacement part?

    The OEM part is around $50.00.
