I feel quite reluctant to mention that I top mine up every 3 months.I use a bit of hollow tube to dip it with my thumb over the end. Big Grin

It used to last ages years ago when cars had a manual pump on the dash or operated by foot near the clutch pedal.

Powered washers today are like a firemans hose.
the MK3 really does throw the water out...

It certainly does appear to use a huge amount of water compare to my Picasso and C4

There's a headlight washer available in other areas (not UK).  But, where fitted, they also fit a bigger tank to cope with the extra load.

I did look into swapping my bottle for the bigger one but the price put me off.  It would be a risk, as presumably a connector for the headlight washer would need to be blanked (or you could fit them!), or it's possible that the fitting and pump mount is completely different.  Citroen seem to be good at completely redesigning bits just to add options, and I didn't want to take the risk.

This is the reply I got from an online Citroen parts supplier when I asked...

The system lists 2 options with headlamp wash
With rear wash/wipe(6431L7) @ £129.05 inc vat
Without rear wash/wipe(6431L9) @ £83.48 inc vat
Unfortunately it doesn’t list the capacity or if it will physically fit.

Alternatively, I wonder whether you could add a supplementary tank to it somehow?
