Question Where is the windscreen washer bottle on 1999 986?

Hello,

I'm completely new to Porsche and to using these Forum sites, so please bare with me and thank you in advance if you are able to help.

I very much hope someone is able to answer this question as I'm about to take my 1999 Boxster 3.2 S 986 on to the ferry in Dover for a trip to Europe early in the morning and have just realised that I don't know how to top up the windscreen washer bottle! If anyone can just answer this one for me, I would be so happy.

Am feeling very daft as I took the car down to a garage in Christchurch yesterday to have the MAF sensor renewed and a wind deflector fitted, but forgot to ask this question whilst I was there.

Please put my mind at rest!!

Many thanks,

Rosie

Hey Rosie, welcome aboard. To top off your windshield washer fluid, just open up your front trunk lid, and you'll see the cap to the washer fluid reservoir near the driver side, in the vicinity of where the driver fender, driver side windshield corner. Just open up that washer fluid cap and top it off... and you're set!

Smile My, that was quick!

Thank you so much..... I did take a quick look earlier on today, but my son was with me and he only has food on his mind, so I didn't get a chance to investigate!!

I'll have plenty of time to check this out in the morning once I'm in France.

Thanks again,

Rosie

Then forum members never stirred unneccessarily. Yes there was FUN to be had, joking and the rest, but they never posted threads expecting controversy.The instrument panel gauge and the dipstick read from the same source. There is an oil pump in each of the camshaft housings for oil return.
