I am in the process of selling my 300D and when I was showing it to a potential buyer tonight, he pointed out that there was a blue puddle underneath my car. After I looked over the situation it ended up being a $.90 grommet that was bad. If you have a slight leak of washer fluid, you may want to check these grommets out. They are on the two pumps, located on the side of the washer fluid resevoir. The two little pumps look like "D" batteries and the fluid resevoir has a recess cut out for each, you can't miss them. Simply pull out the pump (no tools need, just pull straight up, but not by the wire). Remove the old grommet, press the new grommet into the washer resevoir and then push in the pump.
What a time to have my car leak fluid. I guess she is just trying to mark her territory and does not want to be sold.

CJ, You Dog!

And if that's all the buyer could find wrong with your car, and they still didn't want it, then tell 'em to go ^%$#@*&%~ themself!

he thought the price is too high, but I told him first find another one for sale, then see if it is as good condition as mine and finally do they have all the books stamped by the dealer, reciepts to back up the books, the original window sticker and everything reciept in between from bulbs to blades???

There's just no satisfying some people. My guess is that your vehicle is telling you something. The next person who comes to see the car will probably be treated to a nice little exhalation from the exhaust pipe. If you manage to do a deal for the car, it will probably stall as soon as the new owner backs it out of your driveway. These things have personalities, you know. It's the only rationale I can think of that explains why we fall in love with them.

Did you get a little package? Were they the right thing?

P.S. Scott, I think you misspelled your expletive. Don't worry, though, your computer will dry out eventually. I can't believe I can see blue sky today....
