Windshield Wiper Fluid Holder??

I dont know the exact name for it but it holds the wiper fluid or water so spray on your windshield. Well the reason i ask is cause it has a hole in it cause every time i fill it up it leaks out and i can never put fluid in there so im trying to figure out how to get to it without taking the fender off. I have an idea of how to get to it but i need to be sure so any help would do. Thanx

You only need to remove the inner fender (wheel well liner) to access the resevoir. There should be one screw at the front lip of the fender, a handful of plastic rivets in by the strut and one screw at the rocker panel at the rear of the fender. You'll have to remove the wheel to do this. The filler neck installs from inside the engine compartment, remove the screw and twist the neck out of the bottle.

Do i really have to take off the wheel to do it cause i have enough space between the wheel and the fender to take the liner off to get to it.

You might be able to, but I doubt it. You might be able to pull the rear screw and pry just the back part of the liner out of the way to see the tank but you'll never get the tank out.

Why take the tank out?



In all seriousness though, you might be able to find a way to plug it, even if you don't use mighty putty.
