Smile Dumb Evora Question:

What is under the small cap in the headlight lens, looks like it should be a lens washer or maybe a shock mount under the cap

I know, dumb question but it bugs me not to know.

Thanks

lens washer. Activates every fifth or third (i think) application of the windshield wiper juice when the headlights are on/always if you have the DRLs.

Let me fix that:

It activates any time you have just washed and waxed your car.

That would be my luck, clean the car and then get soapy water all over it.(great) Can we turn it on or off at will? or is it 100% auto?

Touché. I disabled my drls but occasionally forget about these at night


There's been talk of pulling a fuse to disable it but I'm not sure anyone really figured it out

take off fuse 32 or 36... can't remember. ( I switched it off 3 years ago. ) And finally your car remains clean. They have much to much pressure (good for cleaning) but bad for the rest of the car optically.

I made a note of which breakers to pull, but let me wrap my mind around this.......it squirts high pressure water on the outside of the lens to clean it when activated?

Yes it's for inclement weather-and it does its intended purpose. I've noticed crap sits on these lenses because they're at such a shallow angle.

However, if you don't have a need, it's a huge pain.

Sounds to me that if the washers can be disconnected by the fuse then I should also be able to by pass the auto len washer system and install a switched to run the washers when I want them to turn no and off. Thanks all.
