anyone move or change there windshield fluid reservoir? it hangs down quite a bit in front of the passenger tire, and i just know a rock will destroy it at some point, i've heard there is a toy version that is smaller to replace it with, anyone know about this? i did a search here under a bunch of different topics and nothing came up, i dont think ifs guys will have this problem, but maybe?

you can also get one from a T100 and move it to the pass side of the eng compartment behind the cruise control.

It is an easy fix for those of us without ABS- use a T100 tank in the space by the cowl on the right fender. I got mine from Bill's 94 RC V6 4x4, try a junkyard... the correct one (85315-34040) new is about $50.



I know production years 10/93 - 8/96 (94-96) for US models will work, others may also. I don't think a cold spec or Canadian will work, it looks too big. Also, the 93-94 1.7L looks even smaller, so it should work.



The only difference is that my connection had a low fluid sensor which I was unable to use. My plug fit the T100 pump.



It is secured with two bolts. If you were energetic, you could even drill out a space to accommodate the centering bulge at the bottom... I didn't.

not my install. i included the rest of the post where i got the pics. see my edited post above. it looks pretty straightforward though. you probably have to drill two holes and that's it.

When I did the SAS, mine was moved to inside the front bumper on the passenger side. I used a bottle from a Sami but glued my stock fill cap and part of the neck to it from the top side of the bumper so it's a snap to fill.

You can look at it at AZ Rocks if you want. It was that way last year. It's inside the damn bumper ya know.

I just flipped the whole motor around 180deg, reconnected the line, and it clears my 35's stuffed in wheel wells :)
