    Can anyone point me to a link on how to get access to the washer bottle on my 2006 W211 ? Just had to fill up twice in a week I suspect a rotted grommet, but no idea how to get access to the tank ? sorry if this is a FAQ :-(

    Cheers Vin

    It is in the offside rear section of the front wheel arch, and the line has to be removed

    Ah thanks at least I don't have to take it all out, I had a grommet go on my old W202 just bought the grommet and popped it in. Modern hocum with hiding everything, still I expect the liners cut down on the rust.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers Vin

    The pipes that go to the lamp washers can leak

    Thanks I had used the light washer the day before, took the inner wheel cover off I had one pipe a bit loose so put a clip on it and its seems fine.

    Releatively easy to get to, but a lot easier on my old C240 :-(

    Thanks for replying

    Cheers Vin
