Hi.
Does anyone know how to dismantle VW Sharan 2007 Wiper Fluid Deposit?
It is cracked and the bomb is broken.
Thanks.

I think you probably need to remove the front bumper to get it off. Which wasn't too major when I took it off the mk1 I had from what I remember.

Not sure, but I bet it’s a tale of:
Brittle plastic clips snapping
Threaded plastic bolts
Taking out headlights
Undoing nuts that you can’t even reach
Things that never go back on straight or like they used to be
Brittle electrical wires and connectors that snap off
And all that sort of thing.
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

Piece of p1ss 3 or 4 screws in each wheel arch,4 screws at top in grill area. Give it a push by each wheel arch to release from clip then unplug parking sensors and fog lamps job done.
Refitting is connect wiring,push on to clips by wheel arches and refit screws.

It would greatly depend on the spec of your Galaxy - it wasn't particually hard on the MK1 I had, but that was an Aspen so no parking sensors to make it more difficult, though even those should make little difference (just be careful once you get it loose that you don't pull the plug off for the wiring). It came off well enough that it was reusable at any rate so you should be fine.

A good tip for finding out what holds it on is to have a look at the parts diagrams - as they show the various bolts and such rather than searching for them on the car when your not sure where they might be, from memory I think its 4 nuts to undo around the radiator area (might be bolts rather than nuts) and then it slides forward.
