Re: Washer fluid in coolant resevoir, removal, drain and refill

I don't know what the Rainex would do to the various seals and lines, so I ended up draining the reservoir.
Not sure if the 11's are different but I could not find the third (or final) bolt holding the reservoir in place on our 2012. Got the top two just fine, but there appears to be one more towards the bottom "toe" of the reservoir but there's no way to see it. I used the pump head and tube I have for diff fluid changes to pump out as much as I could of the contaminated fluid.
You could just stick a water hose in their and dilute it to all water.
Then pump out 2/3's and top off 1/3 with straight anti freeze.
