Freshly cleaned washer res fitted, bleached and everything.
Everything bolted back in, arch and wheel back together.
Today I put the new windscreen pump in, not happy with the pipe for the headlight washer pump sitting on the windscreen pipe.
Removed the HL pump, repositioned the other pipe, pushed the HL pump back in, it pushed the rubber bung into the reservoir

I wonder if there's anything you can do; to retrieve it, in-situ...

I thought about making a tool to fish it out, decided just to dismantle again, couple of goes shaking it upside down ( reservoir not me) and I got it out 😁

I think it made sense, lots of nooks and crannies in the tank, fill hole is the only view and the bung is none metallic no3.gif

yes-

it was just a 'tough one' I think...

good to get it out of the way.

Things are better when they are done right.

Tank is now back in, pumps are in and we are not leaking.
Pipes are all repositioned so no rubbing, new pipe connectors added (thank goodness for hot air guns)
We have water all the way up to the one way valve, stopped there as I want to do again the wiper mechanism.
