Windscreen washer system parts numbers
« on: February 26, 2024, 10:00:52 pm »
I have a January 2006 2.0L GT TDI, fitted with headlamp washers.  The screen washer reservoir has begun to empty itself overnight, so I'm assuming it's cracked and is leaking.  I haven't yet been able to get under the car to investigate, but I have a couple of questions.

As the car has headlamp washers, could it be fitted with a larger reservoir (5.0L instead of 3.5L?).  Does the original pump (as used on NON-headlamp washer cars) also feed the headlamp washers - or is there a larger pump to feed both the screen and the headlamps, or is there a second pump just for the headlamps?

If anyone has parts numbers for any of these items, that would be great (large or small reservoirs, large or small pumps, or second pump).  My local VW stealers have been less than helpful in the past, so I thought I'd try you guys first this time!!
