Replacing Your Windshield Wiper Fluid
- Get New Windshield Wiper Fluid
You can find windshield wiper fluid at many auto stores in your area. You can pick out the basic windshield wiper fluid, or others that have other benefits such as rain repellant or anti-freezing fluid. If you hire a Wrench mobile mechanic, they will arrive to your scheduled service with windshield wiper fluid on hand.
- Check Out Your Owners Manual
Take a look at your owners manual for specific instructions for your vehicle. Every make, model, and year might have different instructions, so when in doubt, check it out. You can also use it to help you find the reservoir if you have trouble.
- Pop The Hood
Pop the hood up securely so it doesn't fall back down while you are replacing your windshield wiper fluid.
- Find The Windshield Wiper Fluid Reservoir
Find the reservoir in your car. It might have a bright colored lid, but every car has a symbol with a moving windshield wiper. If you struggle, you can look at your owner's manual for help.
- Take Off The Cap
Twist the cap counter clockwise and put it in a safe, clean place. If it gets dirty, it could clog your windshield wipers.
- Fill The Reservoir
Use a funnel or a spout to fill the reservoir and avoid spilling. Be sure to fill it to the fill line. If you accidentally spill, use a towel and wipe it up.
- Be Sure Not to Overfill
You don't want to overfill the reservoir because it can cause many issues. Sometimes when it gets hot under the hood, due to the engine heat or outside temperature, it will cause the fluid to expand. If you overfill the reservoir, it could break the container or cause leaks. If you happen to overfill it, use a turkey baster or something similar to suck out some of the extra fluid.
- Put on The Cap
Twist the cap clockwise until it's nice and tight. Then put the hood back down and you are done!
Be sure to test your windshield wipers to make sure there are no clogs or other issues. It would be best to find any issues now instead of when you are on the road.
