(1) If the moving wipers become blocked by ice or other deposits on the glass, the motor may burn out even if the wiper switch is turned to OFF. If obstruction occurs, park your vehicle in a safe place, turn off the ignition and clean the deposits from the glass so that the wipers operate smoothly.
(2) Do not use the wipers when the glass is dry. They may scratch the glass surface or the blades may prematurely wear out.
(3) Before using the wipers in cold weather, check that the wiper blades are not frozen onto the glass. The motor may burn out if the wipers are used with the blades frozen onto the glass.
(4) Avoid using the washer continuously for more than 20 seconds. Do not operate the washer when the fluid reservoir is empty.
Otherwise, pump failure will occur.
(5) Periodically check the level of washer fluid in the reservoir and refill if required. During cold weather, add a recommended washer solution that will not freeze in the washer reservoir. Failure to do so could result in loss of washer function and frost damage to the system components.
(6) If the washer is used in cold weather, the washer fluid sprayed against the glass may freeze resulting in poor visibility. Heat the glass with the defroster or demister before using the washer.
