my warning light for low windshield wiper fluid came up so i went to the store and bought some like anyone else would do. but when i was walking to my car after work i notice it was leaking and there was rather a large puddle of wiper fluid at the front left of the car. i thought to myself that it was just cause it was full blah blah blah. but for the past 3 mornings whenever i take my sibling to school i always see a puddle of fluid in the same spot but not as big. has anyone had any problems like this/ know how to fix it? thanks

the car is a 1998 c230

My guess that the problem is the common shrinking grommet/plug issue. If you look on your washer fluid tank at the front side toward the bottom, you will see a black grommet/plug in the tank. These shrink over time and leak. My dealer has a drawer full of them because they have to replace so many. The price was a rip-off as I remember but even at $3-4 it was cheaper and less hassle than buying a whole new tank.
