Good evening community!
What happens when your wind sheild wiper fluid resevoir breaks?
You fix it like a champion.
Don't ask how it broke, I feel stupid enough already lol

Well Ill tell you how to fix it. (temporarily)
Worm screw clamps, spare grommets and an aluminum drink canister.
Pic below.
Its rough. But itll work till I can get another.

Thought yall might find this amusing.

That A/C line is not very sturdy. Keep an eye on it.

O, don't worry about the A/C line. What you cant see in the back is the thick zip-tie chain holding everything in place through the worm screw clamp.
Figured I should keep it from moving to much or Id break the weld on the line.

Zip-ties happen to be the icing on this cake of disaster lol
