First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The windscreen washer fluid level should be checked regularly and topped up as necessary.

A filter can be found in the feed throat of the washer fluid reservoir. The filter keeps large dirt particles away from the washer jets when refilling. The filter should only be removed for cleaning. If the filter is damaged or cannot be found when refilling, these dirt particles will reach the system and will block the washer jets.

Recommended windscreen washer fluid

Capacities

The windscreen washer fluid reservoir has a capacity of about 3.5 – 5.4 litres.

WARNING

Never mix anti-freeze or other unsuitable additives into the windscreen washer fluid. These may leave an oily film on the screen, restricting the field of vision.
