Removing the windscreen washer reservoir

#1 Post by Mr Teddy Bear » Fri Jun 07, 2019 7:32 pm

I've just re-acquainted myself with the pleasures of a D16 oil change, done on ones back. :sad

Reference removing the oil filter:
I did toy with the idea of removing the windscreen washer reservoir, and then reaching down from over the passenger wing; has anybody else tried this?

It’s a tilter you’ll find them on eBay for around £400.
