	say, what are your symptoms?  i had a problem with mine.  new 
"fixed" it.  the problem: rear washer wasn't squirting.  upon looking into it,
they said that it was disconnected and just flowing fluid into some cavity in
the driver's area, under the rug or something.  oddly, i never smelled this
until AFTER i picked up the car, at which point it was intensely strong.

	now, the rear works, but if i run any of the washers with the HVAC
activated, i get a strong whiff of the fluid.  i think they messed it up
