This guide is based on the 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata but the procedure is the same and applies to other Hyundai models as well.
What You Will Need
- Put the vehicle in park.
- Pop the hood by pulling the hood release under the dashboard, driver's side.
- Locate the windshield washing fluid reservoir on the passenger side of the engine.
- Open the cap by lifting it up.
- Fill up the reservoir with washing fluid up to the required level. Typically you need to stop two inches / five cm below the filler cap.
- Place the cap back on by pressing it down.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does Hyundai require special windshield washer fluid?
- No. Any windshield washer fluid that you purchase at an auto parts store will work
Do I need a windshield washer fluid, or is water OK?
- If you live in a place where the temperature never gets below freezing, you might be able to get by with plain water — but even then, water doesn't have the cleaning power of specialized cleaning fluid for removing bugs, bird droppings, road grime, and crud that collects on windshields.
Why Do I Need Windshield Wiper Fluid?
- Your car's windshield wiper fluid is part of a pumps and washers system that allows it to be sprayed onto your windshield.
- Windshield washer fluid (also called windshield wiper fluid, wiper fluid, screenwash (in the UK), or washer fluid) is a fluid for motor vehicles used to clean the windshield with the windshield wiper while the vehicle is being driven.
