    Since the cold weather has set in my head light washer covers have come up and are now raised. Is this due to the cold weather and the fluid freezing and they will go back to normal place or is that the way they are going to stay?

    Cheers

    Mine raised during the cold spell a couple of weeks ago and when it warmed up they went back again. They have since raised again due to the new cold spell it is due to the fluid freezing as water expands when it freezes causing this to happen. EDIT: also mentioned in jojo's thread :keule:

    Add more screen wash to water or get some concentrate so it wont freeze as easy
