Hello ste, its quite common for the grommet to stay in the bottle when removing the pump ... if that is the case put some washing up liquid round the pump pickup stem before you refit it and make sure you get the "click" as the pump fits back into the grommet.

Its easy to tell if you have lost the grommet or its not fitting properly as when you refill the bottle it will all pour out fairly quickly .... you can recover the grommet by removing the wipers and the scuttle panel and recovering it from the bowels of the scuttle/firewall (you may need to remove the washer bottle as well ), or its only 99p from your Renault dealer for a new one.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
