Detailed Instructions for Adding Washer Fluid – Toyota Corolla

The first step is to pop the hood. Activate the latch under the steering wheel.

Prop up the hood using the prop rod in the appropriate hole in the hood.

Then locate the washer fluid reservoir on the left hand side of the engine bay.

Open the cover by lifting up on the flip top cap.

Use a funnel, or just line it up as best you can and start pouring the fresh washer fluid – bug wash in.

Add fluid until it is either full, or you have poured in the entire jug. If the reservoir is completely empty, it will take more than a gallon of fluid to fill it completely.

The fill neck is transparent, so you can see when it is full.

Flip the lid closed and press until it clicks.

Well done.
