Talking

i got the same problem with my car. i took everything apart & traced to the problem to the headlight washer hose. i havent fixed the leak since the bloody thing is burried under the front bumper assembly.
try this. let the bottle empty out, refill it & don't use it (front lamp washer) see if it still leaks out. if the problem is the same as mine, then don't bother fixing it. just avoid washing the front lamps & it won't leak. it's been 4 months since my refill

unfortunately for me, entire system is shot, my windshield washer doesnt really spray out more like some one trying to spit out...... so if ur in the same shoes as me, just use rain repellant or teflon car wax & put a lil on ur glass, it works

Funny thing is; I have a 01 TT and mine just stopped working a few weeks ago. It started to spray slowly and then it stopped and the fluid started leaking under the car only when I try to use it. Since I had the car at a sport shop to upgrade my divertor valve they checked it and said that the hose had just been disconnected and they reconnected it. As soon I started to use it the problem recurred so they blasted the tubes assuming it was just a blockage somewhere and then tied the hose to the nozzle.

It is working now but not as powerful as before so, I am beginning to think something is going bad and it is just a matter of time before it does. The problem is I probably only used it 4 or 5 times since I bought the car.

It seems that they all go bad after 6 or 7 years??

Best Regards.

I have an 01 S4 and the same thing happened to me. I refilled it and it pour out from under the front bumper. I think you need to take the wheel off to get at the tank.

I had the same problem. The windshield washer pump was busted on my 01 TT. Just replace the pump and it should be fine. It's a $35-60 piece depending on who you buy it from (dealer is more like $60), but replacing it yourself can be kinda tricky.

Edit: http://www.audi-forums.com/1998-2006...sher-pump.html

This was my thread on the issue. Thanks goes to Stamina for the info!

So did mine, but everytime I tried to used the windshield washers, it would drain my washer fluid tank very quickly. The leak only occurred when I tried to activate my windshield washers.

windshield or the headlight washer? cause the head light washer is a ***** to get at, you must take off the whole front bumper..... the windshield is easier if you have the right tools. you need to take off the front left wheel and remove the plastic liner to get at the bottle & 2 pumps (1 for windshield 1 for headlight) if memory serves, the bottom motor/pump is the windshield pump. the line runs under some plastic trim, you can't get to it unless you remove the 2 wiper arms, thats where the specialty tools come in, without it you risk damage the arms (me thinks).

i can't find my repair manual but if you guys wanna fix it your self, buying a copy of that manual is going to make your life alot easier..... everything is very detailed.......

i live in bc, its rainny as (a rainny) hell during the winter, but if you keep up with the water repellants or use teflon wash on the windshield, rain would be nothing. snow is a different story though.....

& finally a touch of my favorite smiles....
