147 Headlamp Washers

Anyone got any idea how to actually operate these?

I'm stuck!

If there like the ones on the 156 they only work when the lights are on

Mine only work with the lights on every time you wash the screen and that gets through water like there's no tomorrow.

My 350Z only washed the lights the first time you washed the screen and after some mysterious number of washes afterwards. Quite a neat feature I thought.

As siad, will only operate when the lights are on, and you operate the windscreen washer.

The jets are powerful, but I'm not sure how much effect they really will have on grimy glass.

Re: 147 Headlamp Washers

As others have said, they work automatically when the head lights are on, but only on dipped or full beam.

You can tell when mine are operating because the lights dim slightly.
