cleaning windshield washer bottle


Recommended Posts

Considering it was a gloried milk jug originally, I wouldn't hold out much hope. If your to do list is that short, BlackDragonAuto has a universal windshield washer kit that looks identical to my series I unit for $20. At that price, there's no reason to let smashed bug win.

On a somewhat related note, does anyone know of a source for motors that will fit on the windshield water bottle? The one on mine is corroded solid. I had a spare tank from a roadster but the motor on that one is in the same condition.

Trico 11-601

That's a pretty big jar you'll need to immerse the entire washer reservoir- probably a two-gallon one. I suppose you could just do one side at a time? I saw a short YouTube video on this, and the person left the plastic part only party-immersed in the solution, and could see the line where the liquid was.

I wonder if Meguiar's or some company like that has a product to clear up the UHMW plastics.
