The windshield washer feature helps clean your windshield, to increase your visibility. When you use the feature, washer fluid will spray onto your windshield, and be wiped away by the wipers. To use the windshield washers, press in on the end of the wiper lever, which is located on the right side of the steering column. The washer fluid will spray for as long as you hold down on the button. When you release the button, the wipers will wipe a few times to make sure that all of the washer fluid is removed.
