Stock bottle looks like an ostrich. Long neck, cap on the end, squarish-bottle on the bottom.

You could make up a bracket and use something like: http://www.3sx.com/store/comersus_vi...dProduct=24300 if itll fit. You said before youre relocating the battery to the trunk so if nothing is going there stick a square tank there. Thats about all I have.


Waiting on install: rear seat delete. :)

well why not put a tank in the trunk along with the battery? moves the weight to where it will do the most good and gives up a bunch of room under the hood.yea it sounds crazy but it might just work.

I just ended up going with the KB one. They sold it to me, with the stuff to extend and mount it, for $45.

Got the tank kit from KB yesterday. No instructions, so I'm going to have to figure out how to install it.

I guess my biggest question is what the giant-ass threaded fittings are all about. They're capped off inside, so I have no idea what they're for.

Also, how are you supposed to hook up the factory pump?

I can help you Chris. The bottom hole is where the stock washer fluid pump goes in. You pull it out of the stock bottle, carefully, along with the rubber grommet. You then take the stock rubber grommet and silicon it into the bottom open hole on the tank, let the silicon dry (1 hour+).
Then the stock pump will slide into the grommet, and you can hook up the hose to it.

KB has you extend the stock motor connector wires and run the connector over to the new bottle location and plug into the pump.

Mounting should be easy to figure out. Bolt the bottle to the bracket, secure the bracket to the fender where the stock air filter housing bolts down to.

Thanks for the reply. Still, I have a few questions:

1) What bracket? It doesn't seem to have come with one (look at my attached pic).

2) Both holes in the reservoir appear to be blocked. Unless there is a smaller hole that I'm not seeing, or holes on the side, I can't see how fluid will get out. Are you supposed to punch that piece out?

3) What is the top hole for? A different application?

Oh, yeah I see what you mean.
First, the holes. The top hole is for a different application.
I guess you have to punch out the bottom side hole (it was already open on mine).

You didn't get the mounting bracket with it, no biggie. Shouldn't be hard to fab up something to mount with.

I can snap some pics of mine tonight if that'll help.

That'll help. Pics are definitely welcome.

As for the bracket, I paid for the entire relocation kit. I'll have to call them up and get it from them.

Finally got ahold of Dan @ KB today. He's going to next-day-air the bracket to me. Talk about customer service. I'm impressed.
