Х Before using the wipers, ice and snow should be removed from the windshield/ rear window. Be sure the wiper blades are not frozen in place.

Х To conserve washer fluid in driving conditions where the windshield washers are used frequently, the headlights will only be washed once for every five times the windshield is washed within a 10-minute period.
Х A short pull on the lever will wash the windshield only.
Х When approximately 1 US quart (1 liter) remains in the washer fluid reservoir, the headlights will not be washed when the lever is pulled to conserve washer fluid for the windshield.
