Hi guys, this sounds like a really stoopid post but hopefully somebody may be able to shed some light onto why I soaked my new pumps yesterday!!

I thought I would top up the levels on my bus, never done this before as we haven't used her much since having her. I checked the rear antifreeze reservoir and that was fine, I also checked the water reservoir under the drivers mat. As I poured in the water it pissed straight out of the bottom!!!!?????

I have checked under the van and the water bottle seems to be housed in a metal box, this s where the water was pissing out from.

Our van is a lhd german import so all of our manuals are german, any clues???????

Cheers all

Under the mat is the windscreen washer bottle. It might be full already? either that or the pipe has come off that tahes fluid to the washer jets

yep they overflow through a vent at the top of the washer tank, so it may well be just full already. but maybe worth checking the pipes too..
