Headlight Washer System

The headlight washer system has an electrically driven rotary pump that sprays water or cleaning fluid at high pressure onto the headlight glass from the outside. This means safer driving in rain, snow and muddy road conditions. A headlight washer system is required by law with xenon headlights.
On some models, the headlights are cleaned in two stages. When the washer nozzles are extended, the first cleaning stage loosens the dirt. The second stage then rinses off the loosened dirt. This means that the illuminated area is not significantly affected by the cleaning process, and optimum cleaning is guaranteed even at high speeds.
