I know that many models of the GCL, have a water sprayer for the front camera but they do not have them for the front headlights - correct? I'm asking because I've seen where older models of the GC (i.e. pre '21 models) have water spray cleaners for the headlights and I have also seen a recent YouTube review that shows them on the new GCL (see below). The recent review I have seen showing them on the "L" is in Australia, rather than the US. I guess they figure that Australians need the headlight cleaners more than the US - unless what I have circled below is not a water spray cleaner?

(This is all what I believe, not bothering to look it up right now though)
I believe that headlight washers are a legal thing, not a "feature". They came about when HID lights were released. HID are bright (obviously) and focused very well, when they get dirty, they can send light where not intended and blind oncoming traffic more then before, so headlight washers were mandated to help reduce this. This may not apply to LED lights, maybe? Again, just surmising what I have found. And maybe in Australia they are mandated?
I don't think my 2021 Summit L has them, with LED lights, maybe they aren't mandated here anymore? But I do have camera washers, which is cool in a way!

They have only been on top trims the few times they came on JGC with "WK2"...I suspect that will likely hold with WL, too, if they offer them at all.
