The Importance of Maintaining Washer Fluid Levels

Washer fluid not only cleans your windshield, but it also acts as a lubricant to your reservoir system. The pump and hoses that spray washer fluid onto your windshield get lubricated by the washer fluid in the reservoir. When your washer fluid is low or empty, then these important components are lacking lubrication and begin to corrode.

In severe and extended cases, the pump and hoses can crack and stop functioning. This can result in having to replace hoses, pumps or other parts of the reservoir. It may not seem like a big deal, but making sure you have enough washer fluid is actually very important. You should also use washer fluid instead of water because it freezes at a lower temperature and does a better job of cleaning your windshield.

If you want to have a quick checkup of your windshield wipers and reservoir, then come into the service center at Momentum Volkswagen. We will inspect it for damage, top off fluid levels and help you select a new windshield wiper, if needed.
