Operating fluids and media
All operating fluids and media, such as engine

development. In the case of combustion engines, also
engine oils. For this reason, go to a duly qualified
specialized workshop when you have to change any
fluid or operating medium. Volkswagen recommends
a Volkswagen dealer.

Inappropriate or improperly used fluids and
operating media can cause serious accidents,

There is a strainer in the window washer fluid tank

large dirt particles from reaching the ejectors. Do not
remove the sieve except to clean it. If the strainer is
damaged or not fitted, these dirt particles could get
into the system during filling and clog the washer jets.
