Rear Wiper Washer 2015 v60

Post by Vandalfsens »

Just bought the car and love it.

There’s no fluid coming out on the rear but working fine up front.

Are there known issues? How do I troubleshoot?

Push down on the stalk instead of pulling up on it.

Washing of the windshield and headlights is activated when the right stalk is moved in the direction towards the steering wheel (Pull up).

To activate the washer function on the rear window, move the right stalk away from the steering wheel (Push down).

Done this way to save on washer fluid.

The only reason a wagon or a SUV has a rear window washer is the squared off rear end. Which creates a vacuum that sucks dust onto the window. The coupes and sedans don't have that problem, so no rear window washer.
