windscreen washers

Came to use the washers today which did not work: turns out the bottle was empty.

There was no low level warning: should I have that feature its a 2007 159 lusso?

Handbook says 'where fitted' so it is more than a little vague.

Just wondered if its only on the models with headlamp washers as I know they can drain a bottle pretty quick.

My 2010 model doesn't have a level sensor either. No headlamp washers but as it's a SW, it does have a rear washer too which drinks from the same bottle, so consumption is quite rapid.

Only fitted if you have headlamp jets.

Otherwise: No spray = empty.

Check the washer bottle weekly, along with checking for sub frame corrosion....
