Well...ok, maybe I thought I filled it...

I filled up the concentrate compartment, but not the water compartment.

All fixed now!:1:

That's funny, I was just having the same problem.

I guess I'll have to look for the water fill too.

hmm.. I didn't think there was just a compartment just for water.. I think one is for the normal washer fluid, and the other is for the high intesity fluid, for the headlights, etc..

I quote from page 115 of the Owner's Manual (2003):

"Headlamp and Windshield Washer System -

Fill with water and - if required - with a washer antifreeze"

But then down below, there is note that says - "We recommend that you mix the washer fluid before adding it to the reservoir." I only assume this means if you are adding the washer antifreeze.

Anyways...it said "Fill with water", so I did. Haven't used the system yet, but will let you know if it just sprays water instead of mixing the concentrate and the water...

Could just be a translation issue in the manual from German...who knows...

It does not mix anything, the high intensity wash is used when you press your right lever in and it sprays the intense wash then the normal way. For when you have a huge mess on your windscreen.
