Forgive me, but what good are headlight washers that cannot be used?  This
would seem to be an appropriate item for a recall.

yep, happened to me on a long trip (of course) and at night
(bouble-of-course). woke the wife up with the buzzer. "what's that sound.
don't wake the kids"...   great.

legend has it, that you can avoid leak by only using the washer fluid thingy
when the lights are OFF. the leak seems to occur when the head light washers
are activated, which, is only when the headlights are on.
