Default Windscreen Washer Reservoir

Needing to source a replacement reservoir bottle for my 164 as mine is leaking despite several attempts to repair. Does anyone out there have a spare one for sale?

Do you me the squarish unit that engages with the tapering mount on the inner wing, with the pump screwing on its top? I ask because one of my 164s has a sort of bag-like thing.....

Will check mine for leaks tomorrow if interested. Hope your lovely car is even lovelier.

Thanks Paul, yes the square bottle with the tapered bracket, The plastic is split where it mounts to the bracket.

(Car has now had a new starter motor solenoid and electronic cooling fan fitted and the gearbox comes out next week for an overhaul.)

Thanks . The hole in mine is a little too big for that. Could fit a penny in the gap.
