It took 2 years for me to consume a tankful of washer fluid from full to the point where the "low fluid" light illuminates intermittently upon accelerating and braking. So I refilled this afternoon. However, the stuff just kept on leaking slowly for hours, to form puddle of fluid on the ground. Seems there's crack in the reservoir caused by it not being full with fluid for too long. I reckon if it was regularly kept full, the fluid would have acted as a "coolant" and alleviating the harmful effect of engine heat on the plastic reservoir.

I'm slightly bitter about this, having replaced the reservoir with a new one only 2 or 3 years ago.

On a CS?

It could well be that the little one way valve has perished and is allowing the fluid to drain.

I'd check that first (there is one in the wing with the bottle).

Who's changed dozens of 1way valves.
