Windshield wiper resevoir tube broken

I have a 1998 Camry. The tube that carries the wiper fluid to the windshield is broken underneath the car. I cannot access that part of the car. Any idea how much the dealer may charge to fix it?

More than an independent mechanic will charge, most likely.

A service manual would tell you how to access the reservoir, and would cost much less than a mechanic’s labor to repair this problem.

Are you sure this tube runs under the car? usually it goes from the resivoir in the engine compartment, into the cowl area, then to the glass, rear glass?

Why don’t you call the dealer and ask them?
