RE: Windshield wiper fluid

I lived thru a bad case of the stinkies with a loaner Jetta a while back
when my CQ was in being fixed. Its squirter didn't have enough oomph to
make the juice clear the vent at the base of the windshield. Massive
headache vs. windows down.

They had a look at it when I brought it back, diagnosed as a bad relay,
or pump, or some such. Anyway, I had the same car shortly thereafter,
and it was fixed.

Have the dealer make sure ALL the juice is ending up on the windshield,
and not leaving dribbles in the vent at the base of the windshield. HTH.
