windscreen washer reservoir

My son has a leak at bottom hose fitting on his windscreen washer reservoir ( 2005 330d ).
would like a p/n for the "o" ring/grommet on this hose. He also has a fault with the passenger wing mirror , which no longer dips when reversing.Thanks for any help with these problems.

Go to realoem. Com for the part no. If its the grommet around the pump these are sold at the parts sites and shouldnt need part no. My mirror does the same. Wondering if the works need some lube like white lithium or similar.

You sure it's the grommet, and not the pump? Over the years I've noticed it's either the windshield washer pump internal seal, or the headlight washer hose that connects to the fitting that connects to the headlight washer pump, that leaks.

Thanks for the input lads , further investigation appears to be necessary in both cases.
Mirror on l/h side does not adjust at all.
Car is not always available as my son uses it daily.

There was that kind discussion about mirrors some while ago.
Might bring you some thoughts about what to do.

windscreen washer reservoir

A new washer pump is about $20-$25 at oembimmerparts.com. A 1 out of 10 on the difficulty scale.

That seems to be about my level of difficulty and price range I will pursue this course of action. Thanks to all who replied with relevant information.
