    Don't know if the S4 I's the same but on my facelift A4 the lower pump nearest the front is the headlight washer and the other is windscreen.

    Maybe mine have been swapped about because the lower one deffo goes to the headlights, but it would make more sense the other way round

    I think the pumps are different as I'm almost certain the windscreen one does the level too. But should be the same between a4/s4

    The level sensor is seperate and is on the side of the bottle, but id expect the headlight one to have a higher pressure out put to engage the actual headlight washer ?? May be wrong though !!
