Hello,

I seem to notice a muddy substance everytime I use my windshield washer fluid. It looks like a muddy grey layer of film on the left side.
Had a look at the windshield wiper jets, seems like a pink liquid which looks like pink coolant is there.

Is it possible for the coolant to find its way into the windshield washer jets? I checked the windsheild washer resevoir, don't see any coolant or pink liquid there.

Did you add coolant to the bottle by mistake?

I have seen jugs of washer fluid that look pink though I usually buy the blue.

Drain the bottle and refill it with new fluid or drain and remove the bottle and clean it.

I checked to make sure I didn't add any coolant to the windshield washer bottle, it seems that the pink liquid appears in the windshield washer jets. I'll have a look at the bottle again. Any advice on how to remove the bottle ? It's relatively close to the coolant bottle, I don't want to loosen anything.

Also, is there a way to clean the windshield washer jets? When I open the hood, there is liquid dripping from one of the jets, the liquid spills out.
