Screen wash pump/bottle
« on: June 12, 2014, 11:13:58 AM »
Hi. Can anyone tell me how to remove/replace the screen wash bottle/pump on my 2008 S max. I've checked the fuse which is ok so now need to check the pump but it seems to be hidden away. I've removed the near side headlight but still not sure.

Any advice appreciated.

Normally, though I can't say for sure on the S-Max the screen washer bottle & pump is tucked away behind the front bumper or in the vicinity of the wheelarch and is most easily accessed by partly removing the relevant wheel arch liner (you can make this easier by putting the front wheels on lock to open up access to the retaining screws which are usually size 25 or 30 torx heads). To confirm which side, look at which side of the engine bay the washer bottle filler neck is located.
