All

my car is leaking washer fluid from the offside front. Looking in the engine bay i cannot see any signs that this is coming from the washer fluid bottle.

has anyone got any pictures of diagrams of the pipework as i think i have a slightly loose pipe somewhere ( the leak is dripping not gushing ).

Indeed , that's why I'm looking for a diagram , so I can fix it. I don't have access to a ramp so the more information I can get up front the better.

Nice one. Had a look on real oem and couldn't find the diagram.

I reckon it's leaking from part 3.

Really ? Ouch , I was hoping to get away without that.

Need to find a cheap garage then.

Just about where I expect part 3 to be. I think the offside headlamp washer got a bit stuck , and the pressure forced the pipe off a bit , hence the dripping. I am not losing a lot of fluid just don't like walking towards my car and seeing a wet floor.

Baring in mind the smily radiator problem these things suffer from.

might be worth checking ya headlight nozzle and actuator aint leaking they are notorious if you go to the how to section there is a how to by me for repairing the nozzle and gaining access to the nozzle etc without removing anything..

I had the same problem today full tank of fresh washer fluid all over the car park. I had a look at the tank and found that fluid was leaking from one of the pumps, took the pump out and pulled the pump apart. I found that the seal around the motor shaft was leaking I put some PTFE tape on the shaft and some more on the outside of the seal. Leak has now stopped and saved me £15 on buying a new pump just for a cr*p seal.:D
