Needing BTDT info.

In trouble shooting inoperative WWs, I've found  the wires to the pump with
the connector to the washer motor unplugged.   What a PITA!  Must one remove
the reservoir, or might the pump be  accessible otherwise?   Removing the air
box apparently may be  easier than removing the Euro head light assy to get
at the reservoir or  pump?

Thanks, anyone.  


I just went through this a few weeks ago.  I had a leakage problem and  
thought I needed to replace the entire reservoir with one I got off ebay.   After I 
removed the right headlight, loosened up the reservoir and wasted  about an 
hour, I had the bright idea of testing the old pump and the new pump  that was 
still magically attached to the ebay reservoir.
Turns out my pump was bad, and the leakage was due to a hole in the hard  
line.  a but of rubber hose fixed the leak, and I managed to replace the  pump 
lickity split.  Anyway, to answer your question, the pump lifts  straight out of 
the reservoir.  Loosen up the two bolts to the right of the  jumper bolt, 
move the reservoir enough to get your hand down there, and pull  straight up.
