all non GT's were the same.

wheel off, inner arch out.

then its 1 13mm nut on the wing, and 1 10mm bolt under the bottle.

Re: wind screen washer bottle

whar about the largerr gt and diesels, can i fit one of them too my non gt model, as the std on it like 2.5litres and needs refiliing every few days, or even several times a day if I am dirving any distance (i.e 750mile roundtrip to loundon).

the gt bottle is 7litre or something, will it fit?

Re: wind screen washer bottle

yes it will. and you need to do it block the pipe for the headlight washers and use the extended connection that the GT wiring loom has to reach the pump.

AFAIK the deisel one is no bigger than the standard one.

the reason the GT one is bigger is due to the headlight washers.

Re: wind screen washer bottle

cool, i will look for one of them then.

here at uni we have loads of the automotive wiring loom water proof type connectors and wiring kits (huge boxs of seals and clips etc) so does the motor work on one of them (you know two prong, yellow black and red bits?, like the ecu diaganostic plug behind ecu?)

Re: wind screen washer bottle

its the same connector as your current pump, needs extending as the pump it on the far side of the bottle on a GT.
