Filling washer fluid

Updated 1/21/2020

Filling washer fluid

Washer fluid is used to keep the headlights, windshield and rear window clean. Washer fluid containing anti-freeze should be used in very cold weather (below-freezing temperatures).

P6-CMA-Wiper fluid refill

Fill washer fluid into the reservoir with the blue cover. The reservoir is used for the windshield washer, tailgate window washer and headlight washer*.

Note

When there is approximately 1 liter (1 qt) of washer fluid remaining, the message Washer fluid Level low, refill and the symbol will be displayed in the instrument panel.

Recommended grade: Washer fluid recommended by Volvo, with frost protection during cold weather and temperatures below the freezing point.

Important

Use Volvo's original washer fluid or an equivalent fluid with the recommended pH value between 6 and 8, diluted as recommended, e.g. in a 1:1 solution with pH-neutral water.

Important

Use washer fluid with anti-freeze when temperatures are below the freezing point to help keep the pump, reservoir and hoses from freezing.

Volume:

  • Vehicles with headlight washing: 5.5 liters (5.8 qts).
  • Vehicles without headlight washing: 3.5 liters (3.7 qts).
