windshield washer bottle info


Recommended Posts

after losing one at $49. I receieved the Jaymic one, had to adjust the bracket a little, the bottle sat too high. Also had to remove some plastic flashing on the drain tube. This caused a leak, the hose couldn't conform to the flashing. The new bottle is very white (new). Have to get used to the appearance.

Did you see the VDO washer bottle cap sell for $50 on Ebay a few weeks back? Unbelievable. I guess that's what can happen in an auction frenzy. I recently picked up a vintage bottle with cap in outstanding condition from a junkyard. The car had its hood up for who knows how long, yet it was still factory white.

After replacing multiple leaky vdo bottles, I was looking for a different solution as well.

So, with journeyman welder for a son, who also is a gear head, and loves to fabricate new projects for his e30, and my ‘02, we came up with this. It is a direct replacement and slides right into the old bracket. More projects are planned for the ’02!

If anyone is interested in one of these, let me know and I can put you in touch with him.
