here are a few choices for windshield reservoir bottle~ =shop

is it sprayin' when the button is pressed? can you hear the WW pump turnin'? does it just leak out? would a sewing needle poked into each outlet fix it?~

It drips out of the reservoir/pump when the pump has been activated - the grommet is soft/plyable. I can't tell if the pump has a crack because the leak is a slow drip, but it eventually drains the reservoir. I was thinking I could remove the entire assembly and try using compressed air to induce the leak, but I wouldn't want to break any pump diaphragm.

My toyota has exactly the same problem...the nose of the motor is integral to the reservoir...1 dollar to get into the Upull and a half hour hike to extract one from a wrecker...this is probably what you will have to do....could cruise ebay or to get one~

I haven't tried RTV Black with it empty...and let it set for fifteen minutes before using'd work better than JB weld and is more flexible for longer~...and you don't have to mix nothin~ most automakers use this for sealin' up the differential~
