    Screenwash. I broke the rules.

    A lot of the screenwash on sale these days isn't up to much. I got tired of not being able to see properly through the screen, especially at night on motorways with a high volume of truck traffic which seem to throw up more oily stuff that smears on the screen. So, at the risk of blocking up...

    Self-filling screenwash bottle?

    I am impressed with all the functions of my Merc, but seem to have found a new one today. As winter is setting in, and roads getting dirtier, thought it time to check all the levels on our daily vehicles. The misses car took about 3 litres of washer fluid to fill back up. The Merc took less...

    Screenwash: poor labelling

    Why is the labelling on screenwash so poor? With comments like: Dilution rates for summer, winter, extreme winter.... We need actual temperatures with relevant dilution rates. And i've seen some that say "use neat for maximum protection" AND "Ensure spills on bodywork are wiped up...

    The handbooks now refer to the need to use a windscreen washer fluid that is compatible with plastic headlamp lenses (assuming car has headlamp washers). Obvioulsy the MB dealer supplied fluid is suitable, but what other brands specifically state suitable for plastic lenses? I haven't seen...

    Coolant and screenwash lights intermittently on and off.

    A little background: My old battery died and was setting my alarm off overnight, so I disconnected the earth lead... And then discovered the boot lock is seized and would not open without power. So, powered up through a boost point under the bonnet (up by the washer reservoir on the passenger...

    W221 Only one wiper & no screenwash facility?

    Hi, I have a W221 S320CDi. Just recently, it has developed an intermittent fault which is that the passenger side wiper stops working and at the same time, the screenwash system stops also. It seems to happen randomly and yet fairly often. Sometimes I can reset it by stopping the engine &...

    W203 rear screenwash HELP

    The rear screen washer on my W203 220 cdi estate is not working, :confused: I can't hear the water pump running, can anyone tell which fuse it is on and which box it is in? Obviously I want to check the fuse before I pull the motor out of the screenwash bottle. Thanks

    Which Screenwash?

    I need to stock up on screenwash - I use a fair amount of the stuff. Which is the best brand to buy for value/performance? Pay a little more for a premium product? Or go to Tesco and buy their own brand? TIA. Paul.
