How do you refill the fluid in car wipers?
What's the best way to refill windshield wiper fluid? My car ran out and I live in Iowa, where I have to constantly drive through bugs on country roads.
“Don’t stress—refilling the fluid in car wipers is pretty easy! All you need to do is buy windshield wiper fluid and pour it into the appropriate reservoir.
- Pop the hood of your car.
- Locate the windshield wiper fluid reservoir.
- Consult your owner’s manual if you’re having trouble identifying it.
- Once you have, simply remove the lid, fill the reservoir up to the line, and replace the lid.
Add refilling windshield wiper fluid to your basic car maintenance schedule, as a clean windshield ensures maximum visibility while driving. Compromised visibility would mean you run the risk of getting into a car accident—and it’s not worth the gamble.”
