Question Windshield Washer Fluid

How do you drain the washer fluid reservior? The washer fluid I have in it now is crap. I bought some of the good stuff that the dealerships use on new cars. I work as a cleaner at a Pontiac Buick GMC dealership in St. Catharines Ontario.

Well you could just run it all out by pulling the lever back and holding it til nothing comes out. That's how I switch from normal to the deicer kind in winter.

why dont you unbolt the resevior and dump the old fluid, much faster and will not burn out your windshield washer motor

I would just use a little 2 dollar hand held squeeze pump. That way you don't put wear on your pump, and it's quicker, and you don't have to unbolt anything.

if you have any sort of hose thats longer than a foot you could easily siphon it out without buying anything else. just put the whole thing in the reservoir then put your thumb over the end and pull it out, aim it down below the bottom of the tank and let it drain. do not suck on it or you will be very sorry

yeah, what the 'kid said.
only wear rubber gloves when you do it.
and switch to rain-x brand, it's got the slippery stuff in it.
and when you go to the saturn dealer to get you oil changed make sure you tell them repeatedly that the orange stuff is window stuff and not dextrol. they will siphon it out and replace it with blue stuff. how do i know?
