Re: [Chrysler300] washer bags





The reason for the hole is probably that I have noticed the small motor seals will tear up or seize if spun dry . With hole on top that can happen. Then you get a drip at motor . Motor pump if empty might not make a vacuum to lift the water . Hole in bottom assures prime and stays wet

I purchased a washer bag about a year ago from Gary Goers.  I carefully cut a hole in the bottom of the bag, in the same place as the old bag, and made a plastic fitting and stainless steel nut and washer.

 It works fine, but the hose hooks straight in to the bag, and not at an angle.

 I could make more fittings if any one is interested.
