Washer Fluid Reservoir Capacity

Hi All,

I have looked in the manual, and it says that:

"The fluid reservoir will hold nearly 1 gallon (4 Liters) (sic) of washer fluid when the message of low washer fluid appears on the EVIC"

does anyone know what the full capacity is?

Hi Steve,

Have you emptied your washer system as well. All this testing sure goes through the fluid.

Cheers John

What is "screenwash"? (Think we've got a little language barrier going here.) Is that what we call windshield washer fluid, or what Chrysler calls windshield washer solvent in the manual? I've used Prestone's De-Icer Windshield Washer Fluid, or their Bug Wash Windshield Washer Fluid or similar stuff from others for decades with nary a problem.

Hi John,

Yeah it appears I was getting over enthusiastic with the washer jets whilst testing the lights

any advances on 5litres?

I think maybe its a misprint and it holds 4 litres,

Weren't we both Steve,
I must remember to top mine up tomorrow as we are off up to Perth at the weekend - due to my wife's health we don't often get out and I certainly don't want to run out of fluid on the journey.
Cheers John

Aye, but a reasonable defence would be that the fluid ran out in the course of the journey. It would then be arguable as to how many filling stations you had passed since you ran out of fluid. I never ever "did" anyone for just the Motor Vehicle Construction and Use offence - a minimum of two to qualify as far as I was concerned. On the journey back to the Glasgow area from Perth the only open filling station after dark is a couple of miles north of Dunblane - so better get out and do it now (well I will wait until after breakfast).
By the way, it is now 19 years since I retired - more or less to the day. But then I was only 44 back then - just a boy.
Cheers John

hey mr watsonofearnock,

I cant imagine what it must be like to retire at 44, as I am 44 this year and having changed careers only 10 years ago am determined to flog it right up till 65.

I wouldnt know what to do all day if I was retired now !, how did you find the experience? did you get a second career? (slightly off thread i know)

regards

elpirata
