Subject: Re: Leaking washer reservoir - '95 9000

Happened to me a couple of times on a '93 9000, and I promised myself that next time it happened I would reroute the washer pipes in such a way that the valve would be reachable without stripping out the wing-liner. Sold the car before it failed again....and the '96 9000 hasn't failed yet....but one day! If you're worried about frequent non-return-valve failures with OEM valves, why not try a pattern part in an easy-to-get-at place? Though maybe that's getting a bit silly! Tim H.
