Uggh Leaking Washer Fluid
I've had a leak in my washer fluid system for some time. I thought it was the pump that was leaking but discovered today its actually the plastic connector from the hose to the nipple on the pump that is leaking.

2 questions for the group:

1. Its the connector for the *black* nipple that is leaking. Anyone know if this one is for the front or rear wiper?

2. You can buy a replacement hose but its not obvious if it comes with the connectors. You don't seem to be able to by them separately. Anyone know or replaced these before?

Tried some black electrical tape over the connector but that was pretty much useless to stop the leak. What a pain in the rear, thought this would be an easy swap out of the pump.

Sounds like the same problem I was having. I went to the auto part store and bought some plastic weld. Removed the tube from the connector nipple and cleaned it off, added some of the weld around the nipple, put the tube back on and let it cure for a day or two. Havenít had a leak come from it yet.

Re: Uggh Leaking Washer Fluid
A few years ago, the leaky washer fluid on my Astra was simply because the rubber hose popped off. Took 2 seconds to reconnect and no problems since.

Doesn't help original poster but might help others.
