The windshield washer reservoir is behind the right (passenger's side) headlight. Seemingly inaccessible. I have not been able to locate instructions on how to access it. My repair manual does not cover it. I am looking for instructions on how to replace it. Thank you.

Removing inner fender cover sounds straight forward. What about the brake cooling duct? Thanks

Tht shold be pretty straight forward as well, it shold either just twist off or have a few small bolts holding it in place.
