I thought the windshield cleaner fluid pump was attached at the Botton of the windshield reservoirI agree, i am mechanically gifted, i am also old and not able to get under a car. Like i said, its just silly to have to pull the 27 '- 7mm bolts, 2 - 10mm, 8 body pins, pull the front bumprr and grill to replace a $4 dc pump. Oh, and my quote is from an independent which ive trusted before and shoots straight. AND, im done buying new cars from the fraud specilist called Dealerships. Ready for my CT.
People are going to have to re-train if you want to work on an electric vehicle, seriously deadly voltages are not to be messed with, I’m 58 and have re-trained as an electrician in the U.K. and going to specialise in EVSEIt’s really important for me to be able to work on my vehicle. This has been a concern of mine going into owning a CT. I bought my Tacoma (best truck ever)in 2001 and I’ve visited a mechanic less then ten times (apart from tires, smog, and alignment). I’m not a mechanic but I’ve done most of the service/repairs myself. So, not including body damage from accidents, what sort of things need to be repaired/serviced on EV’s? Are they rolling computers? I don’t even own a computer. Is an iPhone a computer? Someone mentioned that Tesla sells parts. Do people that own Teslas fix them if they choose to?
ouch !!!...my Toyota tacoma (2016)had the pump at the bottom and it was not too bad to get to......but I am not a tall guy and had to use a ladder to get stabilized to get leverage.....I did work up a sweat though.....had to remove it to install the ballast for new lightsIt is, and the reservoir us located behind the bumper, totaly unaccessable via any alternet routs. That takes an evil engineer to design.
Whenever anyone says bonnet this is what I see:my friend just got his BMW iX and you can’t even open the bonnet
