Washer bottle relocation

Post by mcjjordan »

So im after suggestions/ ideas on washer bottle relocation.

I'm thinking of trying one of the bag type ones, they're only £11 on eBay for a kit.
I think I'll put my PAS reservoir in its place.

Anyone any experience putting 1 of these bag types into the void where the wiper motor is but on the left?

Good luck, but you're in the wrong section. Can someone do the necessary?

I fitted an E36 one just behind the servo. The washer hose got rerouted, and the supply cable and earth got extended to suit

had modified a lhd one to fit behind the servo on a rhd e21 by cutting out a section and using fibreglass to re shape the missing section. came out quite well but never ended up using it. if you want I could possibly try dig it out and get some pics of it. send me a pm and remind me tomorrow if interested.
