2015 Volvo S60: Wiper Sprayers Need Adjustment

by Mike Schmidt, Vehicle Testing Manager on February 2, 2016

The windshield wiper sprayers on our 2015 Volvo S60 need to relax. They squirt in such a tight, concentrated stream that the glass hardly gets wet before the wipers swing in to whisk it away. I find myself holding the trigger longer than I would for a misty-style nozzle to reach the same level of saturation. And I have a feeling I am not alone with this technique.

Maybe that is why this warning greeted me when I climbed into the car yesterday:

Coincidentally, I found a three-quarter full jug of wiper fluid left over from the cross-country Renegade road trip. So I emptied the bottle, closed the hood and the alert went out. Now if it was only that easy to adjust the sprayers.
