Topping Up Windshield Washer Fluid
The only reservoir into which you can add fluid is the
windshield washer fluid reservoir, which is located
behind the front trunk. When the level is low, a message
displays on the touchscreen.
To top up the washer fluid:
1. Open the hood.
2. Clean around the filler cap before opening it to
prevent dirt from entering the reservoir.
3. Open the filler cap.
4. While avoiding spilling, fill the reservoir until the fluid
level is visible just below the filler neck. The reservoir of
Tesla model Y has a capacity of 4.5 liters.
5. Wipe up any spills immediately and wash the
affected area with water.
6. Replace the filler cap.
NOTE: Some national or local regulations restrict the use
of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). VOCs are
commonly used as antifreeze in washer fluid. Use a
washer fluid with limited VOC content only if it provides
adequate freeze resistance for all climates in which you
drive Model Y.
CAUTION: Do not add formulated washer fluids
that contain water repellent or bug wash. These
fluids can cause streaking, smearing, and
squeaking or other noises.
WARNING: In temperatures below 40° F (4° C),
use a washer fluid with antifreeze. In cold weather,
using a washer fluid without antifreeze can impair
visibility through the windshield.
WARNING: Windshield washer fluid can irritate
eyes and skin. Read and observe the instructions
provided by the washer fluid manufacturer.
