Why not just remove this troublesome system from the car to avoid
draining the fluid reservoir?

Forgive me, but what good are headlight washers that cannot be used?
would seem to be an appropriate item for a recall.

yep, happened to me on a long trip (of course) and at night
(bouble-of-course). woke the wife up with the buzzer. "what's that
don't wake the kids"...   great.

legend has it, that you can avoid leak by only using the washer fluid
when the lights are OFF. the leak seems to occur when the head light
are activated, which, is only when the headlights are on.
