    The washer fluid filter in the tank is broken and I can't find one anywhere. Anyone know where to get one?

    Just curious...are you referring to that little yellow washer fluid filter some vehicles have? Is it even necessary? Since it filters only debris in otherwise clean washer fluid I'm sure any small filter would suffice or none at all.

    Yes.....The original plastic nut inside the washer fluid tank that holds the pump in place had a filter on it. You're correct in saying it just filters debris from the tank but if you do happen to get something in the tank, and it gets into the line, then it will easily clog the spray nozzle if it gets that far. I'm thinking that I can just get a small inline filter to do the same thing.

    This is actually the part I'm looking for. I believe this was the filter installed from the factory.

    That looks more like a screen than the yellow filter I've seen but it would block small debris from entering the lines. Perhaps repurpose a small section of stainless screening.

    This. Maybe check a Pet Supply store for some screen for a fish tank? Or better yet, a local hardware store that sells Stainless Steel mesh?

    Yeah it is more of a screen than a filter. I'm thinking of cutting the screen down some snd gluing it on the nut.

    I have a roll of stainless steel screen that I use to replace window screens. If you need a slice. LMK....No cost.

    I don't recommend using glue. Zip tie or SS wire wrap
