    While I have a 2-seater with functioning washers. I do have a 2 finger size hole were water has collected and rusted out. To stop/minimize further rusting, I've bought a front mounted washer.

    I would like a picture of where/how the front washer bottle is located/mounted, before taking things apart.

    The FSM doesn't give a photo picture of where/how it's mounted. Google searching, hasn't given me any pretty pictures of what I want either.

    Short version. The filler cap for the reservoir is just in front of the hydraulic HICAS actuators on a pre-1995 2+2. The reservoir is kind of below the RHS headlight, maybe slightly outboard.
    A pic? The res is not visible from above, you'd only see the filler cap.

    I'm looking at a printed page from the parts Fiche right now, Fiche 4-D16, section 289A-1, windshield washer. It shows the different locations of the washer reservoir on the 2+0 and 2+2 but not in much detail. I've tried to find a share-able link to it online, no joy so far.
    I could put a PDF of the page on my company server but I'm not sure how to make a PDF visible on the forum.
    Or I could scan this page & upload it as a jpeg if you can't find it online but the image quality would be sub.

    And now I'm trying to remember why Nissan banished that reservoir to the rear of the 2+0 cars in the first place...

    The first picture shows a UK TT 3 pump washer bottle (2 screens + headlights washer pump). The second picture
    is a smaller JDM washer bottle (2 screen pumps). Ignore the extra pipe and pump on the side - it's my mod. You can see the location and mounting points.

    The Fiche (don't know how to pronounce that) , If that's the pictures that show individual part type numbers, I came across both washer bottle systems on a site called NissanPartsDeal.com
    ----
    Thanks for the pictures thus far, So how does the JDM one secure on the right side? As the bottle I have only has screw mounting points on the left, with the right side looking like it fits into a slot. Peering through the blinker light opening, I can't see any slot where it could fit into.

    Are you looking to fit a 2+2 washer bottle in that space on your 2+0? As the 2 seater only has a little lift pump in that area from factory.

    Thanks again for pictures, But what does the mounting point on the washer bottle's right side/motor side look like?

    As surely the two left hand bolts can't hold the water bottle secure alone. So if there is a slot, I need picture of it, so I can have an idea of how to make something to support the right side/washer motor side of the washer bottle.

    My car doesn't appear to have anything that can support the right side.

    Ill try and find morr photos for you tonight if i can. From memory there isnt any sort of support related to the right side of the washer. Its a solid plastic so the 2 mounting points in the photo is sufficient to hold it in place without any movement. But let me see if ive got more photos so you can see more clearly.

    I don't have a photo from my car however there is a bracket of the form below supporting the right
    side of the washer bottle.
