Re: 08 xc70 question (kentis19)

They pop out. The reason they didn't wash again is because they're programmed that way to save you washer fluid. As per the manual:<p>High-pressure headlight washing<p>High-pressure headlight washing consumes a<br>large quantity of washer fluid. To save fluid, the<br>headlights are washed using two alternatives:<p>• Low/high beam headlights on. The headlights<br>will be washed the first time the windshield<br>is washed. Thereafter, the headlights<br>will only be washed once for every<br>five times the windshield is washed within<br>a 10-minute period.<p>• Parking lights on. Optional Active Bi-<br>Xenon headlights will be washed once for<br>every five times the windshield is washed.<br>Normal halogen headlights will not be<br>washed.
