One of my friend own a Tata Ace HT for his small local business at my place. he wish to add some more features on his mini truck so I got chance to DIY on an Ace too.

In the rain and splashing mud on windscreen from heavy vehicles I suggested to fit a screen wash on the truck as its not present on Tata ace. I brought the components and did DYI this Sunday and sharing the details.[clap]

Tank fixed on Jack stand behind Driver seat and tighten with rubber belt as he brought a heavy duty jack and placed under co-passenger seat so no issues with jack.

Yes for my car, the rear washer which I have fixed sprays on the front windscreen and on the top. So I taught this would be better.

Congrats Rakesh, this is a very good DIY. Can you post the prices of all spares you used, including the alto tank & motor etc. The spray is covering a huge area of the windshield, final outcome is really good.

Now, that's an amazing cost effective DIY mate. I really liked the use of bell switch, kind of funny but effective.
