Customer Question
I recently changed the...

I recently changed the windshield washer bottle and fitings on my 2008 carolla and since then the water does not go higher than one third to half way up the windshield when I activate the wiper and washer switch. Is there an adjustment that I can make?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?

There must be poiwer as it sprays water from the nossles but not high enough - no?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model of your car?

2008 toyota carolla LE

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Corolla yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing other than refilling the water bottle to the maximum and activating the wiper switch and the switch to spray watr on the windshield

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I believe that I have explained the problem fully.

Hello I will help,

Sounds like a hose is pinched or leaking reducing the pressure.

Why did you change the bottle? Was it a Toyota part that was installed?

I was in an accident that damaged my right front fender and the washer bottle. I bought the bottle and fittings on line and had a mechanic at the gas station install it.
