I have now had to replace 3 of my headlamp hoses because they leak, which means that my screen washer bottle empties rather quickly. Is this a known problem? I have been quoted £180 to replace each by my local BMW dealer, which seems rather excessive for what appears to be a relatively small job. (The part is quoted as costing £50).

Hmmm, if you can get to them, take one off and have a look you may find the part cheaper through Euro car parts or Unipart...... or even Halfrauds.

You should be able to get the parts cheaper and do it yourself. If you go to THIS website you will find the part numbers you need.

Also do you know its the pipework leaking or is it the gasket where the pumps sits (where the pump enters the washer tank as seen on this diagram)

I have been told by the BMW garage that I need a new hose..
As it is the third one that needs replacing, I wonder if there is a known fault with them that I can then try and get BMW to fix for me??
