I need to repair or replace my 2007 Volvo S60's winshield washer reservoir. Do I need to remove the front bumper? How many bolts hold the tank to the frame? Does anyone have the step by step instructions? How do you remove the low fluid level sensor anchored into the bottom of the tank? I did replace the high pressure washer but I'm thinking that there are 1 or 2 other pumps connected to the tank on the back side of the tank facing the motor. Correct? Thanks in advance for your reply.

If your reservoir is cracked, why don't you try some of this stuff. I found it a while ago, and I've been using it to fix cracked remotes, and the like.

I'm not trying to spam this forum. I just thought it might help you out.

I think I can repair it but it will require removing the tank to do the job right. So what I need are blow by blow instructions. Thanks.

Had to remove the reservoir because I accidentally put antifreeze in it (remember to label your leftover antifreeze (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif) )
The easiest way to do it, is to remove the front bumper, you have a screw in each wheel arch, and then there is 2 bolts on the front behind the plastic trim pieces.
Then you can take the whole bumper off, and the it's a piece of cake to take the reservoir out (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
