2009 BMW 750i: Washer Fluid Low
January 22, 2010
What? -- another one? Our long-term 2009 BMW 750 has been asking for windshield washer fluid for a few days now. It reminds you with this telltale and an annoying chime on each startup.
Because I love to add washer fluid to our test cars and am experienced in such matters, I added a half gallon to our 7-series this morning.
You can see in the bottom pic that the filler neck (which snakes below the shock tower brace) is translucent and not opaque as on our long-term BMW M3, so you can see the overflow coming.
I hardly use the windshield washer fluid, using it only to clear dried roadsalt -- and that was in Michigan and not in LA. But others here, I suppose, don't like dust and dirt on the windshield.
I'll save the other half gallon for the next test car.
