Turn on the headlights and push the wind shield washer. the headlights will spray every 4th or 5th time. resets count with each power cycle

I thought it reset with each on/off cycle bu yesterday I started up and did one windshield mist and I noticed my the cloud of mist out front....had to get my microfiber out to clean up the headlights...really wish it was as OP said on-demand or was like seat heat, selectable so I could only have it on in the winter....not a big deal as usually when you use them weather is bad and car is trashed so who cares but there are many times where the car is pretty clean and I just want a squirt on the windshield only...

Re: Head light wash ?

If you did it, like you said, at start up, you could have turned your light off before cleaning the windshield.

Re: Head light wash ?

The man has gone crazy with vinyl wrap!! That looks great but won't it pull off when the washers engage? Or did you cut around them?

Re: Head light wash ?

It was an experimental application. I like everything either painted or polished on the exterior and don't like raw plastic cosmetics. Painting those plastic black parts will be a pita to maintain bc of the honeycomb design (bugs, rock chips, etc). However vinyl snaps back into shape from rock dents, doesn't scratch and bugs wipe right off. Wrapping the washer was easier/quicker than the bottom fascia one which I'm gonna try gloss black on it.
I hate those washers bc my front is clean 99% of the time. The first time I noticed overspray on my front I was confused as heck to what had occurred?? Then I saw a video of the washers on YouTube. I disconnected the pump and lines when I removed the OEM washer bottle for the BWoody.

Re: Head light wash ?

Re: Head light wash ?

I disabled our headlight washers the day ours came off transport, didn't want blue washer fluid stains down the front bumper, ended up just being a easy fuse pull
