Hole in windshield washer fluid res... wtf

So the pollen has been really bad lately and when I went to clean off my windshield this afternoon, nothing happened. It hasn't been long since I was at the dealership, and I knew they topped off the washer fluid. I had some at home anyway. As I was pouring the fluid into the reservoir, I heard something splashing on the ground... all the fluid was pouring out faster than I was putting it in. So there must be a huge hole. I tried to look under there and see what was going on, but then it started raining (which took care of cleaning the windshield anyway) so I had to cut out. How would I go about replacing the reservoir? It looks to me like it's pretty difficult to even get to it.

I had the same thing happen. Turned out it wasn't a hole in the container, but a leak in the hoses. Relatively easy to repair. As I recall, I cut the hose at the break and inserted one of those brass hose connectors from the hardware store. I do remember changing out the hose clamps for the normal screw-type that I had on hand.
