Hi all. I filled up my wiper washer fluid today and found that it is leaking if I fill it past a certain point. It is not full. I tried to get a good look at the bottle but it is buried in behind the front bumper. I think it is either cracked/split or a hose is not attached properly. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas?

I had a leak in mine years ago , but it was the hose that went to the headlight washing spray head.

If you wanted to inspect it yourself, it’s a bumper-off process unfortunately. Here’s what my reservoir looks like. The neck of the plastic tube does look like a weak spot.

Thanks for the advice. Great photo by the way. Thank you. Its filling up to a certain point and then leaking out. Judging by how much water trickles out I feel it’s at the point where the filler neck joins the tank. Is it a huge task to remove the bumper? How long would it take?

I would just fill the tank part way until there was a time that the bumper had to come off for some other reason.

Looks like the front washer jets aren’t working now but the rear one is working. Weird as they run from the same tank. Might be taking the bumper off....
