Operating windshield washer

Use this function when the windshield is dirty.

  1. Move the wiper speed control switch to the OFF position.

  2. Pull the lever gently toward you to spray washer fluid on the windshield and to run the wipers 1~3 cycles.

    The spray and wiper operation will continue until you release the lever.

If the washer does not work, check the washer fluid level. If the fluid level is not sufficient, you will need to add appropriate non-abrasive windshield washer fluid to the washer reservoir.

The reservoir filler neck is located in the front of the motor compartment on the passenger side.


Washer Pump

To prevent possible damage to the washer pump, do not operate the washer when the fluid reservoir is empty.


Obscured Visibility

Do not use the washer in freezing temperatures without first warming the windshield with the defrosters; the washer solution could freeze on the windshield and obscure your vision.
