windscreen washer fluid reservoir

I topped up my windcreen wash earlier today and when I went back to the car a bit later (I hadn't moved it) I noticed some had leaked out from under the car. I definately hadn't spilled any when filling it.

I'd topped it up to just below the level of the plastic mesh filter on the filler cap.

When I check it again after noticing the leak, the level had dropped down to near where the filler tube joins on the the reservoir tank. There were some droplets near a black ring or seal at the join. It looks like a very slow leak over a few hours.

Is this filler section supposed to be waterproof? Is it supposed to be one sealed unit? Anyone else had this?

Just want to know whether to chase up the dealer to get it fixed as I had the same on a peugeot 306 once and they replaced the reservoir under warranty.

Re: windscreen washer fluid reservoir

it more than likely needs a new rubber seal that links the 2 parts together....
