you can also use that "clay" looking JBweld made for water gear. My M3 has the leak in the same area, so did my 335i, it's pretty common. Thanks for sharing pics of the area

Hey guys, 335i owner checking in. I have what appears to be the same leak as the OP. Can someone confirm with this video?

Looks like the same leak. You have to pull out the reservior to repair this anyhow.

Will this repair be covered under factory warranty on my 2011 335i? I've not really noticed a leak as yet but haven't really looked to be fair. All I know is that I put an entire gallon of RainX washer fluid in 4 or 5 days ago and the warning triggered today. I have used it a fair amount but I am assuming it should be near impossible to have gone through a gallon in a few days.

Thanks for the fix info!

The crack on my washer pump is along the base of the side slot opening. Can the opening be filled up with sealant? (Red line is the crack)

Thanks guys

It's ok guys. I found a non-genuine parts replacement pump by Vemo for HKD75, ie less than USD10.

These things seem to crack quite a bit. I've recently developed a leak, as well. I'm thinking about getting some FlexSeal and coating it to see if that'll stop it.

After two repairs attempts I ended up just replacing it.

Do you have a part number for it?
