I need to replace my windshield washer reservoir; however, it is extremely difficult to get to it through the wheel well. I would like to buy a reservoir that I can mount higher in the engine compartment and move the wiring and tubing the existing reservoir to the higher reservoir. Your advice would be most welcome.
How long have you had this problem? 6 months

Rather unusual request - which will require *hands-on* evaluation.. There is no protocol for modifications to the windshield washer fluid reservoir location.

Recommend ‘repair’ existing reservoir or replacement using original equipment / equivalent parts..

Plastic tanks are indeed repairable !

Good luck!

Only reason I mentioned repair is IF the injury is easily accessible to make the repair without tank removal..

Otherwise replacement is recommended.
