Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Ron Z and I'll be helping you with your question today.

On this vehicle, the washer pump is not fuse protected. There is one mounting bolt for the washer reservoir, and then the bottom of the tank chiseled/ribbed piece that is held in by a rubber grommet. Once the mounting bolt is removed, firmly grasp the tank and give a good, solid tug upward to release the tank at the bottom. I have a small PDF file that will show the steps to replace the washer pump and tank. Download the PDF file here:
