WARNING

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

WARNING

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

CAUTION

Do not use an antifreeze or a vinegar and water solution in the windscreen washer reservoir. Antifreeze damages painted surfaces, while vinegar can damage the windscreen washer pump.

CAUTION

Body panels may suffer discolouration as a result of windscreen washer fluid spillage. Take care to avoid spillage, particularly if an undiluted or high concentration is being used. If spillage occurs, wash the affected area immediately with water.

CAUTION

Only use approved windscreen washer fluid.

The washer fluid reservoir supplies the windscreen, rear screen and headlight washer jets.

Check and top up the reservoir level at least every week. Always top up with screen washer fluid to prevent freezing.

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