replace washer fluid reservoir?

Hi, any simple instructions to replace the washer fluid reservoir on a 2013 Fit? It started leaking after it got bumped in an accident.
Do I need to remove the headlight assembly and bumper to access the reservoir?

Front bumper removal makes it a bunch easier but you MAY be able to do it from the back of the fender going in after removing the plastic fender liner. I don't think the headlight on that side.

The whole front comes off with a few Phillips head screws and pop out clips and if you have even basic skills it is easy to do.

I had the same problem. I did need to drop the bumper. found out I broke the washer fluid motor and not the reservoir. I have a 09 fit, I do think its the same. if you need the reservoir I have one for sale, just PM me

Manual suggests removing bumper cover.

Looks kind of tough to remove those bolts through fender.

Noted Canadian Fits have a low fluid warning - hmmm
