Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Windshield Wipers and Washer

Mazda 3 Owners Manual / When Driving / Switches and Controls / Windshield Wipers and Washer

The ignition must be switched ON to use the wipers.

WARNING Use only windshield washer fl uid or plain water in the reservoir: Using radiator antifreeze as washer fl uid is dangerous. If sprayed on the windshield, it will dirty the windshield, aff ect your visibility, and could result in an accident.

Only use windshield washer fl uid mixed with anti-freeze protection in freezing weather conditions: Using windshield washer fl uid without anti-freeze protection in freezing weather conditions is dangerous as it could freeze on the windshield and block your vision which could cause an accident. In addition, make sure the windshield is suffi ciently warmed using the defroster before spraying the washer fl uid.

NOTE Because heavy ice and snow can jam the wiper blades, the wiper motor is protected from motor breakdown, overheating and possible fire by a circuit breaker.

This mechanism will automatically stop operation of the blades, but only for about 5 minutes.

If this happens, turn off the wiper switch and park off the right-of-way, and remove the snow and ice.

After 5 minutes, turn on the switch and the blades should operate normally. If they do not resume functioning, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer as soon as possible. Drive to the side of the road and park off the right-of-way. Wait until the weather clears before trying to drive with the wipers inoperative.
