    Rear washer reservoirs not all the same

    I was buying some Touring parts from a breaker in the UK, so I had him throw a rear washer reservoir in the box. Here is a pic of the reservoir from my 320i (right) and the one from the breaker (left).



    You can see that one has a level sensor and the the other does not, so I'm guessing that the lower spec cars don't have a level sensor for the rear. I think it would be easy to modify the left one to accept a level sensor, but thought this info might be helpful to my Touring bros in the USA.

    I inadvertently tossed mine when I was taking the interior apart and now looking for the rear bottle and pump setup.

    Digging on RealOEM I found two different part numbers, and this explains why some of the other part numbers are greyed out.

    61681381559 is for 320/325 and comes with the level sensor hole and lists the level sensor parts

    61681386996 is for the 316/318 and the level sensor parts are greyed out

      Here is a full set up on ebay. Not sure if the price is good or not. Shipping seems high. Been on ebay for a while.

        That seems like a reasonable price to me, especially considering international shipping and a seemingly complete kit.

          The main thing that caught my eye is that it includes the fill hose, which is NLA from BMW.

            I don't think it has to do with model range as much as it probably does with whether or not it has a check control since there's no way of actually warning you of the fact that its low.

            I'm kind of glad all of my rear wiper components are non-existent. Seems to be a very common failure on tourings.
