Default Re: Uggh Leaking Washer Fluid

Leak is very fast now.

There are two elbows coming off the water pump near the bottom of the tank. They are easy to access under the bumper without removing anything.

It looks like the front-most elbow is leaking at the pump connection but it is difficult to tell. I don't notice any cracks in the elbow or the pump housing. If I remove the elbow and block the pump outlet with my finger, no dripping; so not likely the pump.

A few Euro guys had broken elbows or that hose broke a few centermetres upwards. It's an odd rippled hose covering so difficult to diagnose.

Attempted fix: I disconnected the hose, applied some industrial silicone to outside of pump connection only, reinserted hose. Now waiting 12 hours for silicone to cure & fill with tap water.
