Using windscreen and headlamp washersUpdated 07/23/2018
Windscreen and headlamp washers clean the windscreen and headlamps. Windscreen and headlamp washers are started using the right-hand stalk switch.
Starting windscreen and headlamp washers
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.
To save fluid, the headlamps are washed automatically at 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 fluidLevel 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.
