    Headlamp Popup Washers

    Hey there guys

    Hope everyone is cool

    Now im just wondering if those little covers on the bumper below my headlights actually do anything or can i make them do anything kinda guess they're headlight washers but i havent got a clue how to make them work and thats if my car even has them!! were they an extra etc

    Cheers for reading guys

    Much love

    Standard on S3s. They should pop up under water pressure whan the front windscreen washers are used.

    They will only work when you have your lights on and you pull the stalk to use windscreen washers, i take it by the fact you have these washers that your lights are Xenon (HID)?

    Get someone to test it while you stand in front of the car (lights on obviously)! It's rather cool but makes a mess!

    As Al said though standard on the S3.

    You have to hold the wiper stalk for longer to make them actually pop up, a single pull & release wont activate them, just hold for few seconds with headlights on then you should see the extra spray up over front of bonnet, love them really make me laugh, one of the funniest best options on the cars, but they're usually only fitted on 8L's with xenons from factory & as already advised standard on S3's

    Ok, car doesnt need to be running, as long as ignition is on, put your lights on, and keep spraying for at least 5 seconds, that will defo get it spraying your headlights, if it doesnt spray in that time, then houston, i think we have a problem!!

    Let us know how you get on...

    Tim....I agree totally

    Haha!!! I agree totally...

    Hey im mr.cool, look what my car can do!!!

    Then try and sneak a look out the corner of your eye....

    However I do dread a scenario, where you press it and it gets stuck and doesnt go back down and just sits there pi55ing all your water away....How cool would you look then!!!!
