Filling washer fluid

Updated 23/07/2018
Washer fluid is used for cleaning the headlamps and windows. Washer fluid with antifreeze must be used when the temperature is under the freezing point.

Washer fluid is filled by opening the blue cap.


When approx. 1 litre of washer fluid remains in the reservoir the message Washer fluidLevel too 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 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.
