Starting windscreen and headlamp washers
Washing function, right-hand stalk switch.
Move the right-hand stalk switch toward the steering wheel to start the windscreen and headlamp washers.
The windscreen wipers will make several more sweeps once the stalk switch has been released.
Avoid activating the washer system when it is frozen or the washer reservoir is empty, otherwise there is a risk of damaging the pump.
When activating windscreen washing, the headlamps are also cleaned automatically according to a defined interval, when the headlamps are switched on.
If only approx. 1 litre (1 qt) of washer fluid remains in the reservoir and the message Washer fluid Level low, refill, together with the symbol, is shown in the driver display, then the supply of washer fluid to the headlamps is switched off. This is to prioritise cleaning the windscreen and the visibility through it. The headlamps are only washed if main or dipped beam is switched on.
