How do I use the windshield washers?

The windshield washers provide you increased visibility by washing your windshields. To wash the windshields, press in on the end of the Windshield Wiper lever. If you press this button briefly, the washers will run for three swipes of the wiper. If you press and hold the button, the washers will run continuously for up to 10 seconds.
