The liquid gulf for washing of glasses

Continuous control

The remains of exhaust gases, from means for care of the varnished surfaces persistently settle pairs of oil and silicone on glass. Therefore in a warm season it is recommended in water for washing of glasses to add a cleaner; antifreeze with detergent addition in the winter approaches.


    The branch pipe for the gulf of liquid is in all models at the left in an impellent compartment on a lateral wall, but tanks have different forms and the sizes depending on the engine and a complete set. In cars without system of washing of glasses of headlights the tank with liquid for washing of glasses has capacity about 3,5 l. In cars with system for washing of glasses of headlights the tank in capacity about 6,5 l is established. In cars with a turbodvigatel and system of washing of glasses for the sake of economy of a place the tank from two parts is established. One tank settles down – as in all models – under a wing, hidden in a wheel niche. The second tank settles down precisely opposite inside in an impellent compartment. In the beginning pour an additive and then water in order that liquids in a tank well mixed up. In the car without warmed sprays of water (are available in «a winter package») sprays can freeze through at a hard frost. For prevention it is recommended to use higher concentration of antifreeze. Podmeshivaniye of denatured alcohol in a combination to antifreeze can lead to formation of flakes and a blockage snuffled sprays. Not to allow a blockage snuffled sprays liquid for washing of glasses, it is recommended to establish in a hose of supply of liquid the filter available on sale for gasoline.

 Councils: You should not fill in water for washing of glasses from flasks with water, often at stand-by at filling stations since there the remains of oil and greasing which then will appear on your windscreen often meet and during a rain will create in the field of work of screen wipers stirring lubricant film.

If the review field on a windscreen, despite an additive in water of detergents, remains muddy, old familiar means for Sidol brass cleaning (but not will help «Sidol Spezial»). It is put with a rag and should dry up, and then the white dust is erased by a pure rag. In such a way the remains of oil, means for care of a varnish and other substances reliably are removed.

Adjustment of a water stream

At activization of system of washing of glasses on a windscreen of Audi A4 four water streams are splashed out. Adjustment is carried out as follows:


    Insert a needle into an opening распыл. nozzles. The opening of a nozzle takes place in a ball which turns by means of a needle. Turn a nozzle until streams of water will not fall on a windscreen how is shown in drawing.

Water nozzles with electroheating

Despite an antifreeze podmeshivaniye, liquid for washing of glasses can freeze in forward raspylitelny nozzles because of a head wind. From it the device for heating helps snuffled, available in «a winter package».

Directly before nozzles there is a metal case with temperature and dependent heating resistance. At inclusion ignitions (plug X) on this resistance tension arrives. Nozzles quickly thaw at a frost at the expense of an initial current of big force (0,5–0,7 And). For temperature maintenance the current after a phase of warming up falls approximately to 200 мА. If air temperature falls below–15 °C, the current of a podderzhivaniye of temperature raises to 320 мА.

Search of malfunctions

If heating of the water snuffled does not function, check the following knots:


    Having opened a cowl, disconnect the shtekerny socket of a nozzle. The tension indicator at the included ignition check, whether there is a tension or whether as it should be connection with weight. If is not present, find a gap in a wire. If with tension giving everything is all right, it is necessary to replace a nozzle.
