Rear wiper reservoir

Post by Gingermagic »

Hi All,

Does the rear wiper screen wash have a separate reservoir, or does it use the same as the front (at the passenger feet area).

Thanks.

Thanks for replying Steve,

That's what I'd read, but I can't see anything anywhere.

I'll post some photographs when I go out to the van.

This is the back right of our van ...

Surely the rear screenwash hasn't been boarded over by the people who did the conversion???

You can see the top of the reservoir just to the right of where the grey trim starts near the tail gate

Thanks for the pics. Very useful.

There's a small hole, in the panel on my van. Just big enough for my little fingertip.

See the centre of the final image in the set of photographs that I posted.

I wonder if that feeds directly into the rear wash container! :-)

It looks to be roughly the right place, but that would be a bit of bonkers design! The rest of the conversion seems much better thought out than that.

Are you sure you have rear wash wipe?
That’s a leisuredrive conversion, and they normally leave a hatch to get to the rear res. Either it’s had a interior fitted from another van, or maybe another tailgate ?

I would be very surprised if that came from leisuredrive like that .

It's definitely got a rear wash. I've had water squeezing out of it.

Maybe the rear wash was added after the conversion? No idea. I'm clutching at straws.
