Having problems with your 2004 Mazda Tribute ?
Leaking windshield washer fluid resivour
\015 My wife has a 2004 Mazda Tribute with a leaking windshield washer fluid resivour, does anyone know where I can get instructions on removing the resivour?\015
I had a similar problem. My first thought was that the reservoir was leaking but there were no holes in it. Then I noticed that the fluid hose had come off the hose junction fitting (above the passenger side fender -- hard to reach without taking off the panels) and fluid was siphoning out. Later on the hose came off again, and so when I had it in the shop for some other maintenance I asked the guys to look at it. They told me there was a pressure problem with the reservoir pump which was causing the hose to disconnect. They changed out the pump and it's been working fine now.
I have had the same exact washer hose problem with my 2006 tribute. I had to remove the entire inner fender cover to get to the hose union. When the car was under warranty, this happened one other time. It took me about an hour to repair, since the inner fander cover is time consuming to remove and replace. If it happens again, I will put a tiny clamp on the hose and fitting.
