I have recently purchased a s40 t5 awd and love it, the only thing that seems strange, it that the washers only come on sometimes, no pattern at all. <br>I have searched the forum for this topic, with no hits, so either its a stupid question or i have a very unique vehicle. <br>

Running the risk of echoing UKMatt, read your owners manual! <p>I believe they are activated on first pull, and then on the 5th subsequent pull - I could be wrong though, it's been a while...

Re: Does your headlight washers come on every time you pull the lever? (DazedandConfused)

The washers are intended to come on intermittently. The frequency depends on whether you have bi-xenon headlights, how often you've washed the windshield within recent minutes, and the position of the headlight switch (off, parking, on). Are you sure your washers are not behaving <A HREF="http://apps.volvocars.us/ownersdocs/2005/2005_S40/05s40_03a.htm#pg51" TARGET="_blank">as described in your owner's manual</A>?

Also if you quickly & gently pull the wiper blade you can use the wipers without activating the headlight wipes, thats what i do <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
