Notice:

• When using concentrated washer fluid, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for adding water.
• Do not mix water with ready-to-use washer fluid. Water can cause the solution to freeze and damage your washer fluid tank and other parts of the washer system. Also, water does not clean as well as washer fluid.
• Fill your washer fluid tank only three-quarters full when it is very cold.

• Do not use engine coolant (antifreeze) in your windshield washer. It can damage your washer system and paint.
