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.

Filling of washer fluid takes place in the reservoir with a blue cap. The reservoir is used for both windscreen washer and headlamp washers*


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 P5-1507-Washer fluid-symbol symbol.

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


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).


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