CHECKING THE WASHER FLUID LEVEL

WARNING

Some windshield washer products are highly flammable, particularly if high or undiluted concentrations are exposed to sparking. Do not allow washer fluid to come into contact with naked flames or sources of ignition as this can cause a fire or explosion.

WARNING

If the vehicle is operated in temperatures below 40°F (4°C), use a washer fluid with antifreeze protection. In cold weather, failure to use a washer fluid, with frost protection, could result in impaired vision and increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

CAUTION

Only use approved washer fluid.

CAUTION

Take care to avoid spillage, particularly if an undiluted or high concentration is being used. If spillage occurs, wash the affected area immediately with clean water.

The washer reservoir supplies the windshield and headlamp washer jets.

The Message center will display a message when the washer bottle requires more fluid. See INSTRUMENT PANEL.

Operate the washers periodically to check that the nozzles are clear and properly directed.
