    No, It's actually rather annoying that the soul doesn't have these. You can buy some online though. The only other things that the car doesn't have that I wish it did is a 710 cap and a set of piston return springs.

    the gasket saturation is particularly irksome, washer nozzles would allow it to drain off....

    rather than start a new thread I'll just resurrect this old short thread on this subject.

    Just as a bit of trivia, when I purchased my vehicle over 15 months ago the windshield washer fluid was full, yesterday I emptied it for the first time - now I know my low fluid light works

    Also in case any of you are wondering, no I did not fill it up at any time and it went into the dealers twice for service and I but a bag on the container fill neck with a note on telling them not to fill (which they saw it as they made a note on my work order). Also for your reference, it takes a complete bottle of windshield washer anti-freeze to fill it (3.78L)
    Fuel Economy: 49 fill ups: Average 8.4L/100km (28.3 mpg US); Worse 10.4L/100km (22.6 US); best 7.2L/100km (32.7 US).

    I have to use my own W-washers every time I get in my car, because the glass is totally covered by tree pollen.

    I just listed my own washer fluid recipe on another thread. Heck, it might have been a different forum!

    For a good NON-AntiFreeze washer fluid, I use one cup of household Ammonia to a gallon jug, a few drops of food coloring (just for fun) and then fill the jug with tap water.
    I'll usually go through a gallon of fluid in about a month.

    On the SX4 forum the guys were having all sorts of problems with the washer fluid hoses coming loose.
    I wonder if that's ever been a problem on the Soul ???

    In retrospect, I can't believe that anyone would ever ask the question about IF there are washers on the Soul. ????
    Of course there are!!!!

    PS:
    I too have to give them (my dealer's mechanics) a Don't Touch list.
    It includes:......

    Engine air cleaner
    Cabin Air Filter
    Washer Fluid
    Tire pressure
    and......Don't WASH!!!

    Going to the dealer for an oil change is more trouble than it's actually worth.
