    Headlight Washer Leaking

    All, I'm having an issue with right front headlight washer...appears to be leaking fluid to the point where warning light is displayed.  Anyone else have this issue? In order to get to this, it appears front bumper must come off, anyone have instructions on how to do this.  Thanks in advance for your help.

    Re: Headlight Washer Leaking

    I've been there when installing my Passport SRX system. You should be able to gain access just by removing wheel and wheel well, a matter of removing several Torx fasteners (T27,T30 if my memory is correct.) Once the wheel well is removed you should be able to see the fluid hose running to the headlight. They have a "quick coupling" connection that may be loose or have a leaky o-ring. I believe the coupling is at the point where the hose is secured to the bumper cover. If you do indeed need to remove the bumper cover, you'll need to remove both wheel wells (or inner fender wells) as well as all the visible torx fasteners both underneath front of car and inside the "boot" that secure bumper cover. Remove side markers and unplug, disconnect washer hoses at coupler. At this point there will still be 2 points holding cover on. You'll need to remove a clip that slides out away from the headlight on both driver's and passenger's side. All you'll see is a color matched metal tab to the inside of the headlights. Hook it with a pick or hook tool and pull towards the center of the hood. This should allow cover to drop down enough to allow access. If you want to completely remove you'll need to unplug fog light wiring as well. Good Luck!

    Goose, thx for quick reply, I'll try removing wheel and wheel well first. Hopefully, this will reveal the issue.

    Update - Leaking headlight washer valve was the culprit.  Dealer replaced under extended warranty contract.  Thanks again for info.
