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 some other issues you may have with your washer solvent reservoir. It's a 2 piece system as you can see. The filler neck is not made onto the washer solvent reservoir itself, just being on a compact vehicle such as this Probe, it's easier for the factor to make this as a separate piece for assembly purposes. When you disassemble this you're going to want to apply lubricant to your o-ring and seat this in. If you've checked your pump grommet and your level sensor grommet, and are still having washer solvent leaks, it is my suggestion to you to remove the reservoir, take it into your bath tub, fill it up with water, plug the hole for the hose and inspect along the seams here and all the way around. The seams are done with high temp mold injection and can slip over time. It is also possible that the mounting bolts have been extremely over tightened and split through there. You're going to want to take this into your bath tub and fill it up with water. I suggest using water for the cost effective purposes just cause solvent is about 2 bucks a gallon and water is just about free these days. Like I said just fill it up, hold it in your bath tub, plug your hole and inspect along the seams and mounting surfaces for any defects, flaws, or failures.
