Wiper Fluid Spray Pattern Adjustment.

Does anyone know how to adjust the nozzles for the wiper fluid sprayers? I am not clear on how it's done nor how the spray pattern is supposed to look. As owners may know the nozzles are actually attached to the wiper arms, as opposed to mounted to the hood as in most vehicles.

TIA.

Fuel Door Issue No Longer!

Suffices to say I'm happy to report that the fuel door hasn't gotten stuck, ever since the last time I've reported it happening that I can remember.

Decreased Full Charge Range: 13 kW to Fill.

The left EV power meter never goes down lower than two bars. The last fill up from two bars to full at an Electrify America station noted we used 13kW of electricity. I guess the degradation on our battery is down from 17kW?

Seems significant for 38,5k mi....

Fatigue Related Shifter Concern.

I admit I was tired. MAYBE I was just confused, could have had the gear in R thinking it was D, but I looked down to check... I had just finished filling up the gas at a gas station and I was set to drive off (forward). Selected D, released the brake, not sure if I stepped on the gas but I felt like...

Re: When to service/oil change?

After the brake fluid change I reset only # 7, and it estimates tire rotation, #1, will be due in 2 months, roughly 7k miles from last time.

Re: Brake Bleeding, 2 (Wo-)Man Operation No Fancy Tools Required.

I asked my son to help me since he turned in his midterm early today. I decided to suction out some of the fluid to the minimum line first and fill up with clean fluid. Then onto the first 1/2 with the engine on. It was really hard to coordinate. (He's 15 and doesn't have a driver's license yet). A ...

Re: When to service/oil change?

Quite annoyed with the service minder. Yesterday it guestimated 10 days until 1 7 are due. Today my wife takes it to go have a physical and comes back. I was going to take it somewhere and when I turn it on I'm surprised with Service Due Now. Weather is rainy on and off so only got to lift her up an...

Re: Tire Center Tread Wearing Fast, Running 36 - 37 PSI (Cold)

When the tire pressures dropped to 30.5 PSI cold I got a TPMS low pressure light. Running 32 PSI now and happy with it so far.
