Washer fluid pump - sealing

My washer fluid's been leaking fairly quickly (within a day) since I got my jeep, so I decided to finally get a replacement pump, as I'm pretty sure they were the problem. I replaced the more worn looking one, but now the seal on the grommet to the tank is so loose that when I fill it, it just pretty much pours right out.

I don't remember the instructions on sealing the grommet. Is there something I should use?

So long as you got the right pump, my bet is the pump hole in the tank is worn. I would take the tank out of the engine compartment & use a good silicone caulking sealant to seal where the pump is seated. I have replaced a few windshield washer pumps & they all sealed fine so I can only guess the hole is worn to a bigger size.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Just had the same problem. Tried everything to seal the pumps with every product available with no success. Had to buy a new one. Hope you have better luck.
