Hey anyone added any protection or moved their washer fluid reservoir in a DII?  I upgraded to the ARB front bumper and now my washer fluid reservoir in teh drivers side is exposed to the wheel well.  I am just waiting for a stick to bounce in there are tear it off / punch a hole in it. Thoughts?

The pictures aren't sorted properly for some reason, but you can piece it together. If you're lucky, you can remove the plastic support clip (on the fender) and get it back on without breaking. The stock top of the filler tube isn't sealed to the pvc. This way, if something does happen, or you want to try something else, you don't have to cut it again. I think there's even a mold line that was used as a cut guide.

 

Doesn't hold much water, but it's not an issue for me. The holes for the tube clamps were already there. You just have to remove the trim under the headlight, and well maybe the bumper. I have a Rovertym bumper so it's slimmer than the ARB.

 

I was able to re-use the rubber grommets from the factory bottle. I want to say I used a 5/8" drill bit and still had to ream the hole to make them fit. Just go step by step in bit sizes to be sure. A little hand soap will allow a slightly smaller hole and still be able to push them through for a good seal. Once the grommet fits, insert the pump.

VERY clever. Love it. The P38 is the same way with the exposed reservoir, so thanks for the idea for tackling this.

Not on an D2, but on my D1 I removed the stock washer bottle and put a smaller aftermarket one in its place. I don't have the headlight washers on my aftermarket bumper and never used the rear one so having all that volume of fluid was a bit silly.  I wanted to use the flat area where the stock bottle was to mount a blue sea fuse block and a hella relay block.

Thanks for all the great advice!  I really like both set ups.  I think I want to do something similar I just need to make sure I keep a decent capacity as I have working headlight washers and my Disco goes to Tahoe every weekend in the winter.  Thanks again!
