    The washer fluid should not have any contact with oil. The only place is probably in the washer pressure pump, even if it’s a small amount.

    If there have been oil/wrong washer fluid in the reservoir, it could be really hard to get out. You do either have to take it out and clean it a lot or replace the whole reservoir.
