    Headlight Washer

    Had to replace one of my headlight light washers (the drivers side one started leaking everywhere). Wasn't too bad a job but did require me to drop the front bumper fascia (again), and a $40 part. Someone I was talking to about this didn't know headlight washers were a thing. So, since we have so little opportunity to see these in action I made this video:

    Yea, neither me. I've heard them, but not seen them.

    Cool video. Isn't this one of the features eliminated on the '15s?

    If my memory is correct, headlight washers are required for HID lights in Europe, along with light leveler systems. I figured that's why we got them here in the US. GM had to build them anyway.

    Do the 2013 SRX's have these? If so do all models have one? My wife has a 2013 and I am not aware that it has headlight washers.

    The 2013 sales brochure shows that the headlamp washers come w/ the HIDs, which are installed/available on the Performance and Premium trims only.

    This is correct. Headlamp washers are included with HID headlamps, and those are only available/included with the Performance and Premium trim levels.
