My resevoir is fine, but there was a rubber line off the resevoir to the lines for the nozzles that had rotted and leaked. Remember, there are TWO resevoirs.. so don't forget to fill it up. If you get under the car and look around the resevoir you can see that rubber line i'm talking about.

Like mentioned, the head light and windshield washers are TWO SEPARATE setups. They are not related whatsoever.

Indeed. One day, junkyard-hunting, I re-enact:



(pointing to headlight washer fill-up point on an SSE)
"Hey dad, our car doesn't have this?!"

"I removed that and threw it out long ago"

"oh"

And I continued on the hunt for a Delco-type coilpack. Didn't have any luck that day :(

Default headlight washers

Mine dont work either as suprising as that sounds considering previous posts. it looks like mine just rotted out the line to the nozzles but i havent checked it ... ever but it brings attention to itself every time i lift my hood. I'm happy when all the little features work.

busted bottle here too

kinda funny actually, jiffy lube tried to fill it, only to find it draining it about as fast as they could fill it. they then wrote in acrillic paint "LEAKS" with an arrow over the reservoir.

I had the same thing! But i filled it up, and found the rubber line disconnected. Reconnected it, and bam fixed.
