NOTICE

The original windscreen washer - Electronic parts catalogue avoids freezing of the jets, of the liquid reservoir and the connection pipes.

It is compulsory to use the original windscreen washer in vehicles with fan spray jets, since this liquid has lower viscosity at below-zero temperatures. Otherwise, the jets system can become obstructed by crystallised liquid, nullifying the fan spray of the jets. The "original windscreen washer" guarantees the functioning of this type of jet, even at low temperatures.

The original windscreen washer - Electronic parts catalogue should also be used during the warmer seasons. The powerful cleanser removes wax and oil residue from the glass.

The antifreeze protection of the windscreen washer must be guaranteed down to -25 ºC (in countries with a polar climate, down to -35 ºC approx.)

Adding liquid

The windscreen washer reservoir must be filled up fully.

For the windscreen wiper/washer, only use the "original windscreen washer" all the year round.
