2 Options: 1. Don't attempt, because its not worth it. 2. First take of the gravel guard under the front fascia. Then take out the wheel well guard on the drivers side (all 7mm). Then you will need to loosen the front fascia from the driver side fender. 1 bolt, and 2 nuts, all 10mm. Now you can either take out the radiator, or you can just work the reservior out. Either way its going to be a pain. There are 3 bolts, and about 4 one way plastic push bolts holding the thing in. If you are going to keep using your current pump, its on the engin side of the reservior, then just lift it straight up about 1 inch. Otherwise, disconnect your battery, then disconnect the power cable and washer fluid tube from the pump. Now its time for the removal. If you are not going to take out your radiator (the better choice, since that would be an even bigger hassle) then you will need to jack up the front of the car. Now the air intake assembly will HAVE to come out with the reservior. Both will come out, not so easily from the bottom. Replace, and repeat in reverse. Have fun, I know I did.

I agree with all except you dont have to take out the air intake that is behind the wheel well guard. If you take out the screws in the bottom of the air intake you can push it out and the reservoir will slip out...not so easily but it will come out.... I also removed the 3 screws on the PCM module that is mounted recessed into the washer reservoir....you can spin the module around and get it out of the way..

Its not a fun process but it is doable.....

good luck...

The windshield washer pump is attached to the washer fluid reservoir. You will find 2 pumps attached to the reservoir. The other pump feeds the rear window. The reservoir can be unbolted and removed from the engine compartment.

First check under the hood, there might be a separate reservoir for it right by the windshield washer reservoir. It might also be at the back, lift the tailgate and there might be a little cap with a windshield wiper logo. Or the rear window washer might work off the front windshield reservoir. If it's shared at the front, then you'll have to keep the windshield washer fluid above the middle line on the windshield washer reservoir tank at least. Open the rear hatch. On the driver's side, there'll be a filler cap which is used to fill the rear window washer reservoir.
