I've seen it on may cars with rear washing windows I think the fluid expands and creates a siphon effectWhen we picked up the car last Saturday we noticed "trails" of windshield washer fluid down the back window. I've also noticed a perpetual drip at the tip of the sprayer... and now 5 days later the fluid light has come on. Anyone else experiencing this?
If you've leaked out the whole tank of washer fluid, yeah, definitely a problem. I filled mine shortly after purchasing (I used up the stuff the dealer put and put my own washer fluid in after purchase) and I'm still in that same tank nearly 8-9 months later, even having noticed the occasional drip lines.I just find it troubling that it's leaked apparently an entire fill volume of wiper fluid within 5 days... definitely a problem!
I took it in and they supposedly couldn't make it happen by pressurizing the line, so their opinion was nothing is wrong.I noticed a couple of washer fluid drip lines going down the tailgate window glass. I'll keep an eye on this.
@bren213 - did you get this issue fixed?
Correct. TJ stands for tech journal. 25153 is the journal number. The rest is the date. Provide that to your dealer or dealier as some others on this forum call it and you should be good.So is that a number you provide to the dealership and they'll figure out the fix? Sorry, not sure if that's a reference to a post or a technical journal I'm supposed to look up?
Oh great, I'm set to go in for my one year maintenance and have this on the 'to do' list for the dealership but now who knows if they'll follow the journal and replace the nozzle... Hoping to hear from others who may have had this done and I'll also share my results once I get the car back later this month, early June.How many times did you have to take the car in order for the dealer to actually replace the nozzle. I had taken my car into the dealer for other service and mentioned the drip with the tech journal. The paperwork said that they checked and cleaned the lines and didnt report any problems. However, a few days later it drips again. This time I kept my back window dirty to give proof of the leaking. At this point I dont even know if its worth getting it fixed.
My XC90 leaks worse than a waterfall. I have taken photos and sent to the Service Center.I've had the same experience, I've reported the problem - they couldn't reproduce so there was no fix. I brought it back citing the tech journal and they won't fix it unless they see it happening. It's not an every day occurrence, I don't know what triggers it one day versus another, but it's frustrating to know there's a fix but it has to be observed before it will be done!
