Similarly, it should not exceed the maximum level, as this could lead to overflow or other issues. Therefore, the ideal level is between the minimum and maximum levels. To check the washer level, one would typically open the hood of the vehicle and locate the reservoir for the washer fluid, which is usually labeled. The level can then be checked visually or by using a dipstick if provided.
