Just recently bought a 95 525i and the windshield washer fluid lasts about 2 days when I fill it up. Anyone have any experience with this. Thx

Welcome to the tribe.

If you use the search feature in the forum you'll find this has been addressed.

Having said that, Remove front right tire and fender inner liner. There lives the windshield washer pump and much plastic tubing, all prone to leaks and failure. That is where I found my problems. Pump and plastic tubing are cheap (Pelican Parts and Ace Hardware....bring a piece of tubing to get proper diameter). Took me about 25 minutes to redo the system and another 30 to reattach that inner liner with around 17 little assorted screws and fitting

When we bought our 525i about 21/2 years ago this forum and it's members proved a storehouse of invaluable knowledge. If members like Bluebee, cn90 or Fudman write it then you can believe it.

Props on the purchase....these are fantastic cars. Again, welcome
