Q: Washer fluid not coming out

asked by on

My washer fluid reservoir is leaking. I need to know what I need to replace.

Hi. The windshield washer reservoir would need to be inspected to see if the reservoir is cracked. Other issues could be that the level sensor, pump motor or seals are starting to fail. I would recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your vehicle’s windshield washer system to pinpoint the problem.
