Thanks for holding.
On this vehicle, the washer fluid level switch is a stand-alone serviceable item. No need to replace the entire reservoir. Unfortunately, there are no testing specs for this switch. But if the level is correct in the reservoir, the switch is most likely the problem. And it's not that bad of a job to access and replace. To gain access, the passenger's side wheel well liner will need to be removed. Once removed, you'll have a clear shot at the switch. Inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If the inspection is ok, unplug the electrical connector and then using 2 flat-blade tools on each side, pry the switch from the reservoir. Reverse the procedure to install and lubricate the new switch's rubber grommet with a bit of washer fluid to aid in installation.

The retainer clips are a "push-pin" type. Using a flat blade tool, pry the center of the retainer up. Once they are popped up, use the flat blade tool too pry the base of the clip upwards and out. I have a small PDF file showing their locations here:https://goo.gl/8HWpf8 (keep in mind the repair manual only shows the driver's side - passenger's side is the mirror opposite).
