Default [email protected]#$!$$....windshield washer reservoir [email protected]#[email protected]#

We have had some sloppy weather recently, so I decided to fill up the reservoir of both of our audis.

Filled the '01 A6 wagon no problem...but I flipped the cap open on my S8 and the plastic tab holding the cap to the bottle broke and the cap dropped into a cavity.

No problem I thought, got the retriever tool out and of course that simply pushed the cap further into the far reaches...so i gave up.

Anyone know if this is available without buying the whole bottle?

Default LOL, mine just broke last December. Cheap plastic "living hinges"

When you need it most (cold weather), that's when the plastic is most brittle.

Fortunately, mine didn't fall down into he engine bay.

The cap is around $7 from the dealer.

Default Recommend cutting the strap, drilling holes in the strap...

and linking the two pieces with a cable wrap. I did that on my C4 years ago and it still works fine (It gets COLD here in Vermont.) Reminds me to do it to the D2 one of these days. Once it's warm.

Default Thanks guys! I will pay the dealer a visit,,,

I need a couple of other things too, that damn button in the door jamb that turns off the interiro alarm exploded this summer, so i guess I will replace it at the same time.
