Washer bottle problem

  ICE'dberg MK2 172

Read else where, while I was searching for something else, about a washer bottle problem and made me think about a potential problem I may have.....I must be getting paranoid now!!!!!!

Noticed that one of the headlight washer jets has been leaking and washer fluid is sprayed along the bumper side.

It said on the post that the fluid only lasts about a couple of hours and is a recognised fault. Not noticed any lack of fluid, but not that ive used any to see.

Whats been the symptoms of this???

As I said im paranoid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had that exact always looked like it was crying! I think there was also a leak in the bottle as it seemed to empty really, really quickly (had to fill it almost every day).

Is this 4k rattle something to do with the exhaust???? Suprise suprise mines just past 4k and its developed a quiet but annoying rattle that seems to be coming from the rear of the car.:mad:

yes, apparently its something to do with the centre box and a very well known problem....and dont let them tell you any different.

warranty job !!!:D

yep centre section, you will get a buzz around 4,000 rpm mine was more noticeable when you backed off and the revs fell back past 4,000, the centre section was replaced by renault last week, all is sweet and buzz free (for now)
