    I have my Mondial (1988) in the shop for maintenance and was told the washer fluid motor does not work and the water reservoir needs to be replaced.

    Has anyone repaired the motor that connects to the reservoir or do I really need to replace then entire item?

    I don't have a shop manual, but is this easy for me to replace? It sounds easy, but I have not looked into doing this myself.

    Thanks.

    You can get a 2001 Jeep Cherokee pump which is a direct fit. The oem pump is held on by a metal retaining ring inside the tank which is ok to remove but hard to put back on. The Jeep pump has a friction fit rubber grommet that makes installing really easy.

    Do I need to take the reservoir out or can I replace the pump while the reservoir is in the car?

    So I use the rubber go met and not the metro engine in the reservoir?

    Thank you.

    My Mondial is a 1988 with ABS, it may have a different set up for the windshield tank than the non abs. For me the thread in the 308/328 section searching on the windshield washer pump and referred to the Jeep Cherokee part was identical to what was on my car. The parts diagrams only list a pump for the Mondial t, which is not the same pump. The Mondial 3.2 parts diagram has no part for the pump, looks like you are to order the whole reservoir and pump as a unit. I am a confused, as my solution was the same as for the 328.

    My reservoir is just held in by a clip arrangement, it just lifts right out, and the pump is on the bottom, disconnect the wire, hose and replace the pump. I did all this 7 or 8 years ago, so just going by memory. I didn't think much about it as it was such a simple fix.

    Might be best to look at your reservoir, and get the Stekkefun used unit if it looks the same. Seems like these Mondial's may not have identical tanks/pumps. I checked the Stekkefun site, the 60710200 item looks like mine I think, except it does not have the second hole in the top. The motor orientation looks the same. Can't tell for sure if the pump is the same, I think it is.

    Did any other Mondial owners replace with the 328/Jeep pump?

    Sorry for confusion syata, I thought I was helping but want to make sure I am not sending you in a wrong direction.

    No problem. I too have a 1988 Mondial with ABS.
    Currently the car is in for service. After I get it back I will try and replace the water pump myself.
    Thanks.

    I may have another one coming in in a couple of weeks. I would recommend to keep an eye on my site.

    Those eBay versions look legit. I need a RHD for my Euro and tempted to get one. I know it's not OEM but I have OEM which is cracked with dead motor. Anyone tried one of these yet?

    I have not but may... My washer pump went out. My first option will be to replace the pump. If that does not work and an OEM reservoir is not available (they are used about $200 plus Shipping) then I will try the aftermarket reservoir. I hope I don't need to drill holes into the compartment---that may be a deal breaker for me. I don't like to drill holes into my cars.

    I ordered that one from eBay and got a refund 2 days later as sold out.. They may get back in stock in a few weeks and i'll check back... I won't drill holes and do some fancy zip tieing or something to hold in place. Ok with it that way then drilling holes since not OEM. Actually be neat if i can seal off the one I got and have fluid in it, while running thew power down to this non OEM that I can hide under the tool role/spare time. This way it looks original but not... Just thought it, and will try it if can get it when back in stock... Yes, i'll post pics.

    Beware, those metal push-nuts that hold the pump in place from the inside corrode and then break and they are unobtanium. So don't break the one you have. The Jeep one may work with the Ferrari pump, hard to say.

    FNA says you can't order the individual pieces, you have to buy the whole ensemble.

    Since I almost never drove in the rain, I just let it be.
