[Solved] Dirty/ foul smelling windshield washer fluid. Audi a3 2010
Hello, thus problem is related to the same audi a3 i ask previously and received wonderful advice.
The problem is this, every time i use the washer (although it works perfectly), it has an awful like rotten odor, when i use it on the front windows. Also smelling in the tank it has a sort of a stilled water smell.
I suspected the water was bad after sitting for a long time, and hoped to fix it by adding more but its been a couple of months and several Litres of washing fluid and the smell remains.
Should i empty it by keep using the washers?, use a small hose to drain it, keep adding fluid.
im hesitant to only use the washers because it has like a 5L fluid tank (between 1/2 and 3/4 full) and im scared of damaging the pump.
The car itself works perfectly.. for a 12 year old audi treated like crap, by his last old driver. (46k kms 1.8T and the 7 DCT)
Any advice is apreciated
of course get the stinky water out. Use any method you like. The pump will be fine. or just unbolt the reservoir and dump it out.
