    Corrado 20vt washer bottle relocation

    Hey all,

    I'm looking relocate to the off side (drivers) inner wing behind the headlight so I can install a proper induction system where the washer bottle used to sit and to generally neaten the look of the engine bay. Has anyone completed this to the location I need it? If so which bottle was best for this? The most suited so far I've seen is the mk1 Octavia VRS. I know I'll need to do some fabrication but I'm just after easiest, minimal fabrication and most aesthetically pleasing.

    Thanks in advance

    Steve

    Sound, cheers mate. Cross referenced part numbers and they are same part No. as Skoda. Picked one up from local scrappy and I reckon it'll fit nicely with minor fab work

    I'll post one tomorrow for you. It turned out to be a great fit with no fabrication required. It mounted using existing studs on the wing and chassis leg. Ran some extension cables and hose from existing and jobs a good'un. Newer pump also runs smoother and more powerful. Paired with the E30 wipers it's a great setup.

    For me it's a must on a 20vt C because there is just no space for the TIP and filter if you keep the washer bottle in it's original location. It also gives you options to run a cold feed to the air filter etc. The relocation probably cost me no more than £10 and around an hour fitting it. You can pick the bottles with pump for around £5 at scrappy but make sure you get the pump wiring connector with plenty of wire on it to solder extensions on. It ends up being a really tidy install if done properly and looks OEM. I've got a picture on my phone, is it possible to upload one on here or do I need a computer?

    I've not posted any pics on here for a long time so not sure how it's done. I use the Facebook page most off the time nowadays. Think you have to go advanced on the reply to post a pic but not 100% sure
