Mine does it too. It's only annoying when the idiot light comes on though, so I don't worry about it.



-It's kinda funny that there is a warning light for washer fluid. In my truck, if you hit the button and nothing comes out, it's empty.

Happened to me too. I was annoyed so took off the fenderliner, found the little 90 degree elbow on top for a ventline (I assume) but no ventline attached. So I attached a rubberhose on to it and routed it up and problem solved.

I just fixed my windshield and headlight fluid sprayer which never worked since i bought the car 3 years ago. Living in AZ, i did not have to use it that often.
First, you don't need remove the front tire if you don't plan to remove the reservoir. It's best to turn the wheel completely to the right then remove all 6 screws holding the big plastic cover. Most leaks, like mine, occur where the pumps attached to the reservoirs. Pushing them deep in6 and ensure that everyting else is tight. If the leak is from the reservoir, then you have to remove the tire to get it out.

You are being funny right?

Recalls are for safety related items that are likely to cause a crash. Not for rubber seals that may deteriorate just from age.

Mebbe things are different in Manila.

I have this problem now. The top part of the wheel well liner doesnt fit right when I tried to put it back and also I broke the plastic underneath and I cannot connect it correctly. F N A. I got no time for this nonsense, I think I may end up taking it to the stealership.

if your water bottle is touching the liner, there are a few things i would check.

1. do you have the correct water bottle?
2. is it secured correctly?
3. is your bumper seated all the way back?
