Filling washer fluid

Updated 1/21/2020

Filling washer fluid

Washer fluid is used for cleaning the headlamps and windscreen. Washer fluid with antifreeze must be used when the temperature is under the freezing point.

P5-1507-Refilling washer fluid container

Washer fluid is filled into the reservoir with the blue cap. The reservoir is used for both windscreen washer and headlamp washers*

Note

When approx. 1 litre (1 qt) of washer fluid remains in the reservoir, the message Washer fluid Level low, refill is shown in the driver display, together with the symbol.

Prescribed grade: Washer fluid recommended by Volvo – with frost protection during cold weather and for temperatures below freezing point.

Important

Use Volvo genuine washer fluid or equivalent with a recommended pH of between 6 and 8, in working dilution (e.g. 1:1 with neutral water).

Important

Use washer fluid with antifreeze when the temperature is below freezing to avoid the fluid freezing inside the pump, reservoir and hoses.

Volume:

  • Cars with headlamp washing: 5.5 litres (5.8 qts).
  • Cars without headlamp washing: 3.5 litres (3.7 qts).
