washer fluid

    I just took my M2 into the dealer as the washer jets were non-functioning. They told me that I had used orange washer fluid and that had caused the pumps to fail! I can only use the blue. Here in MA we regularly go below freezing and the RainX fluid works well below freezing whereas the Blue...

    Quick question from a new BMW owner! Do you have to use BMW official washer fluid or can you use any washer fluid? I have read online of a lot of people saying certain kinds of fluid will damage your BMW? I know people who have made their own washer fluid by mixing alcohol and dishwasher soap...

    So I personally thought it was simple, just requires washer fluid however when i poured it, it was good for a few days and then the light came up again. I decided to check it myself and apparently there is a leak that i didn't notice, i personally haven't checked it out but i notice washer fluid...

    Hi, I have a windshield water leak near the passenger side from washer fluid in my BMW 2002 x5. I have looked online but I couldn't find where the pump is located. Is it behind the passenger front wheel or is it under the washer fluid tank? Thank you

    Anyone replace their windshield washer fluid tank/reservoir? Mine is leaking and I think I want to tackle this one on my own. I looked around the forum and didn't see much advice. I'm guessing its the same for all Z3's. Thanks in advance.

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has used Rain-X washer fluid on their cars and if so, did it cause any issues. I couldn't really find anything conclusive so please pardon me if this is a repeat. Thanks!

    Purchased a 2000 528i in great shape except for three issues. #1 Car has no windshield washer fluid coming out and no fuse blown. Took my new baby to a local machanic to find no leaks in the tubing. #2 I'm missing buttons on my climate control panel. Where to buy and how are they purchased. #3...

    My 2001 330Ci is leaking windshield washer fluid really fast. I will fill it and it's empty within a couple days. Does anyone know if this is a common problem and/or if it's an easy fix? Thanks! Vince

    so i check my fluids on a daily basis before using the car and all my fluids (oil, coolant, steering, etc seems topped up). i noticed my washer fluid was dead empty so i poured some in (but not fully cuz i didnt have enough). when i started the car, there was a bing sound and it said something...
