A few more handy tips regarding washer bottles and keeping them tip top...
So you've lost the small plastic filler cap... Don't just leave it, debris and dust from the engine bay can make short work of the motors and at best, block the spring loaded joint unions between the pipes so you end up with a pathetic dribble
You can go to the dealer's but the best solution is to use a screw cap from a cheap empty wine bottle or even WKD, Bacardi etc...
they fit perfectly
Once a year, take the time to empty the contents via the motors and jets, release the hose clips to the motors.
Give the filler bottle a good flush out with clean water then reconnect the pipes. Throw in a small 250ml bottle of white vinegar and cover the jets with a towel to catch it as it comes out and run the jets again.
Flush out with clean water again and refresh with screen wash. Your washers will continue to work as they did from the factory as good as new
Keep a cheap pan scrubber in the car (pound shops sell them in a pack if six). The type with sponge and a green scourer.
Use the green rough surface to remove hardened bug splatter from the windscreen glass only in a jiffy and save you wasting screenwash and wiper blades being damaged in a futile and vain attempt ... Bug crap in the sun can harden like superglue, the rough pad will make very short work of it and best of all, it won't scratch the glass so don't worry
But ... It will make short work of painted surface and rubber seals, so be careful... Don't use it on your headlamps, they are coated plastic!
Don't be tempted to use a needle to clean the jets, they aren't like the old fashioned type and you can damage them beyond repair.... There is a small flat blade black screw head on the side of the jet assembly if you need to adjust them up or down. Just a miniscule adjustment can make them miss the screen entirely
, so do be gentle and careful.
Hope this helps
