Audis are known for their technology and performance—bells and whistles like automatic headlight cleaners can make maintenance easier by reducing the need to manually clean and de-fog your headlights.
To use the headlight washer on an Audi, you just turn the headlights on and pull the windshield wiper stalk toward the steering wheel and hold it there. The headlight washers come on along with the windshield washer.
Your headlight washers are genuinely automatic—they will come on about every 5th time you use your windshield washer. Unfortunately, there isn’t a manual button or lever that activates the headlight washer on its own.
If it seems like the headlight washer isn’t working at all, check your washer fluid level, and make sure there are no clogs or debris around the headlight washer ports.
