My aunt that lives in New York just got her new 2005 X5 in today. She asked me how does the winshield washer work. I don't know because i don't have an X but maybe you guys can tell me so I can tell her as soon as possible. She is very pleased with it too. She said it drives firm.

How does it work? It sprays cleaning fluid onto the windsheild which is spread around by wipers that move to the left, and then to the right.

LongHairedHippy: Just let him die out. The odds are on that he won't reproduce, so the problem will take care of itself

heres the real answer your after.

as far as i know the new X5's still have a stalk on the side of the steering colum. even with auto wipers i think there is still a conrol stalk on the colum. however with the auto wipers when the sensitivity is turned up which would be like increasing the delay on normal wipers they aren't nesecerily consistent, becasue the sensor still has to see water on the lens before it will wipe. the washer function you have to pull back on the stalk to get the washers to work. then the wipers you just push the stalk up or down and there is a knob in the end of the stalk that you turn to increase the delay or adjust the sensitivity of the auto wipers. and if she has any other questions the owners manual should be a helpful; tool in finding the answers.

oh and hey there is no such thing as stupid questions, won't know till you ask, there are only stupid answers

Hey Duster: Well, are there stupid questions or not. Does this sound like something you wrote.

"No one helps people who ask stupid questions, least of all whom are pretentious assholes. "Where is the oil that used to be in my car that isnt there anymore?!?"

Here' one for you Nuke

How do you keep an idiot in suspense?. I will tell you tomorrow Nuke.

I've noticed this is the only kind of info you contribute to the forums.
Why is that?
