replace master cylinder #1106192 04/07/21 05:29 AM

I want to remove the windshield washer reservoir to make room to work on the brake master cylinder on our '90 Gen I. It looks like the washer reservoir should just lift off the bracket but it doesn't move and I don't want to break the 31-year old plastic reservoir. Is there something else holding the reservoir or should it just lift up off the bracket?

It should lift up. Might want to dribble a little dish soap down where the metal bracket slides in and rock the reservoir a bit to break the friction.


Cheers, Charlie

Turns out there are two detents at the bottom so if one pulls straight out on the bottom and then lifting it slides up. Takes some effort at the old plastic is not as flexible. But it is surprisingly tough for a vehicle made in 1989!
