Hi, I'm Mike from 1AAuto. We've been selling auto parts for over 30 years! We're dedicated to delivering quality auto parts, expert customer service, and fast and free shipping, all backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. So visit us at 1AAuto.com, your trusted source for quality auto parts.

In this video we're going to be working with our 2006 Chrysler 300. We're going to show you how to remove and replace your vehicle's washer fluid reservoir. These are mounted very low and in the wheel well of the vehicle, meaning that pretty much anything that gets kicked up on the road is going to land there first.

If you like this video, please click subscribe. We have a ton more information on this and many other vehicles. If you need this part for your car, you can follow the link down in the description over to 1AAuto.com.

Here are the items you'll need for this repair: 10mm socket, ratchet, socket extensions, drain pan, windshield washer fluid, flat head screwdriver, funnel, gloves, jack and jack stands

Raise and support your vehicle. We're using a lift to make it easier to show you what's going on, but this job can easily be done at home on a jack and jack stands. You'll need to remove the vehicle's belly pan or air dam which is missing on our vehicle, but to remove it you'll have three plastic pins in each wheel well here. A series of bolts along the bottom of the bumper. You can see the opening for all of them here. Three more in the opposite wheel well. Again, part of ours is missing. Then there are four bolts here. Looks like they're 10-millimeter that secure it to the bottom of the vehicle subframe.

Once that's out of the way, I've just placed a funnel into a partially empty jug of washer fluid. Remove this hose on the bottom where the pump is and allow it to drain into the bucket. Lift up on both red safety tabs. Disconnect the electrical connectors and remove your washer pump and fluid level sender from your reservoir.

Remove the three 10 millimeter bolts securing your washer pump to the vehicle. There are two here on the back side by the wheel well and one here at the front, just behind the bumper rebar. Remove these with a 10 millimeter socket and ratchet as well as some various extensions. Make sure you get a full swing by the bottle. Remove the last bolt and carefully pull back and lower the washer reservoir out of the vehicle.

Here we have our old washer pump reservoir that we removed from our vehicle and our new part from 1AAuto.com. As you can see, these parts are exactly the same with the same filler neck and cap. We even have the same fill line here on the neck, same body and capacity, and the same three bolt mounting locations on it. Now washer fluid bottles are in a very vulnerable place, especially on this vehicle. If it were to come loose or something were to get kicked up under your bumper, this is going to be the first thing that breaks. If this cracks, you're going to lose all your washer fluid and not be able to clean your windshield off safely and effectively. Fortunately, this replacement from 1A Auto is going to go in direct fit just like your original equipment, get your windshield washers working again so you can see and drive safety and fix you up right.

Just so you can see, your mounting locations are here. Carefully send your washer reservoir back up through the opening. You may need to open the cap here just to give it a little more room. You just got to kind of work it. There's some connectors and things that are kind of in the way. Once you've got that in, line up and reinstall your three 10 millimeter bolts and tighten them down with your socket racket and extension.

Reinstall your level sensor in the top hole. You do have to kind of work these gaskets around. It may actually be easier to slide the gasket off. Set that into the hole first and then pop your sensor in. We'll do the same thing with our washer pump. Maybe easier to slide that gasket off. Install that into the reservoir and then install the pump into the gasket. Once those are in place, reinstall your connectors. Gray to the center and this kind of tan/being one here goes on the pump. Reconnect your line.

Reinstall your belly pan or air damn.

We'll lower the vehicle and refill our washer fluid. If your old washer fluid wasn't contaminated and you're not changing it to a deicing or different type of washer fluid, simply pour the old stuff back in as long as it's clean like that. If you have to, use another bottle to fill to capacity. Check for proper operation of your washers and senders and you're good to go.
