How to fix cracked windshield wiper reservoir

Someone slide swiped my car and ran and they hit me hard enough to crack the windshield wiper reservoir. So I decided to make a how to on fixing it.

Heres a picture of the V when it was slide swiped.


Heres what you need

Epoxy about $6
Repair Kit about $12



Heres the actual instructions the repair kit comes with.













After you have finished use normal water to test any leaks in the reservoir and if so use the extra epoxy to cover were the water is leaking from.

Any question, feel free to ask .

How-to looks good. Hope you're able to fix the bumper w/o spending too much cash.

Hi,

I have an 07 Versa hatch back, the windshield washer motor is not working properly, the water spray is not strong enough, problem is worse in the cold weather. Has anyone else had this problem. How do I get to the pump and replace or repair it.
