Hello all, have just bought a 2005 c-max zetec 1.6 with insurance money. Really enjoying driving it so far. I do have what may seem a ridiculous question, though. After hours of searching, albeit in the dark, I cannot find the windscreen washer reservoir to refill the fluid. It's driving me mad! I've looked on the web and know where it should be but just cannot find it anywhere. Before I take it to a garage tomorrow and look like an idiot, I thought I'd ask here. Any help appreciated.

Zac

with the bonnet raised, stood at the front of the car and looking backwards (Ie drivers side is on your left)
The washer filler neck cap is the blue item with the lip on it just in front of the bottom edge of the bonnet and about 6" in from the edge (you only see the top of the neck as the tank is below the wing)

Could it be that the filler neck has been removed from the bottle and not replaced?

Thanks for the reply, Richard. If I had the facility to post a photograph, I would, because I swear it isn't there! There's no blue filler cap at all. I'm probably missing something obvious but I can't see what.

Ah, that could be it, shaz. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll take it into a garage tomorrow and see what they say but you're probably right.
