Wiper blades the most neglected part of your vehicle are actually some of the most vital.

Wiper Fluid

Furthermore, the wiper blades are only half of the team, wiper fluid is also essential for assuring visibility-as it helps clean ice and snow off of your windshield during the winter.  If you've ever pressed the button for the wiper fluid and found nothing has come out, then you know it's time to get under the hood and top off the reservoir.

 

Before your start, you'll need good-quality windshield washer fluid and a funnel.

     
  • Before you begin, make sure your vehicle is turned off
  • Locate the hood release level and pull it
  • Under the center part of the hood, discharge the latch and lift up the hood
  • Open the wiper fluid and set it on the ground along with the funnel
  • Locate the fluid reservoir cap and open it
  • Locate the fill line just below the top edge of the reservoir opening, place the funnel in the opening, and pour the fluid into the reservoir until it reaches the fill line
  • Replace the reservoir's cap and close the vehicle's hood-securing it back into place
  • Place the top back on the bottle of fluid and rinse the funnel with water
  •  

Of course, our highly skilled technicians at our Ford service center serving Wilmington DE can always help with any wiper blade maintenance your car may need-even if it's just want a topping off of the wiper fluid reservoir!  Or, if you'd like to do it yourself, the replacement wiper blades and windshield washer fluid for your Ford are both available in our parts department.
