hey so i was driving my sisters xc70 today (very nice btw)
but i was useing the wipers and i could have sworn that i got windshield spray from those little bubble things where wipers can go right in front of the headlights.

do those little mound things pop up and spray wiper fluid? or is it just a spot where you can put wipers?

if it is how do you get them to spray cause after i thought i got it to go the first time i could not get it again

idk im very confused thanks everyone

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:

High-pressure headlight washing

High-pressure headlight washing consumes a
large quantity of washer fluid. To save fluid, the
headlights are washed using two alternatives:

• Low/high beam headlights on. The headlights
will be washed the first time the windshield
is washed. Thereafter, the headlights
will only be washed once for every
five times the windshield is washed within
a 10-minute period.

• Parking lights on. Optional Active Bi-
Xenon headlights will be washed once for
every five times the windshield is washed.
Normal halogen headlights will not be
washed.
