E46 328Ci headlight washer

Hi to All,

I am new here and looking for help from anyone who can tell me what part I need to replace the headlight washer on my coupe.

I notice that my washer bottle has quickly gone empty in a day. I discovered that the driver side headlight washer assembly is gone (the thing that pops out under the headlight see photo). The actual cover is not there anymore and that water is leaking out of a round plactic assembly.

My question is what parts do I need to replace this?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you all!

Have you plugged your VIN into www.realoem.com and searched the diagrams for the parts yet?

on my car the headlight washer motor died (well the impeller in the motor broke) so i need a new motor, but i suspect that the cylinders (part 6 in the diagram above) are leaking as well and if this is the case im not going to bother wasting my money.

My question is does some fluid leak out of anyone else's cylinder at the when you manually pull the nozzle out?
I put an arrow on the attached picture where the fluid leaks out of

My does leak when I manually pull the nozzle out. I careless about them working, my next plan is to either plug or clamp the main hose line connected to washer tank to stop leaking and hopefully no issue with the windshield washer...lol
