Default Windshield Washer Fillup is a disaster

Is anyone else frustrated and pissed off at Audi for making the Windshield Washer Fill Up so f'ing hard and ridiculously unuserfriendly??? I mean WTF!!! couldn't they have placed the fillup point somewhere else where you would not spill crap with every fill up? Especially when you cannot feel your fingers from the frost bite and every gust of wind just makes you spill even more?

Isn't there a solution for this yet? Damn it Audi, WTF!!!???

I don't find it that hard. Sure when the wind blows you're gonna spill, but thats gonna happen with any location. I just wish the cap would stay open. And I always remove the "filter" because with it in place you can't tell if its almost full.

You're not using a funnel?

The blue cap in the upper right of the photo of the 3.0T engine bay). This is the A7 but the A6 is very similar. It's been in that area for years on all of my Audis. Not ideal but not all that difficult to access either. As said, you can use a funnel if you want to be tidy. I've gotten pretty good at aiming the spout over the opening w/o too much over-spill.

Use a small gas can with a flexible spout. Mark it or spray paint so someone doesn't pour washer fluid in a gas engine fuel tank.

Looks like someone needs some coolant too. I agree that the location isn't that bad. I've had vehicles with it closer to the front and it still comes down to how good you are at pouring.

Yeah, I wonder what that screen is for. Maybe to keep ping-pong ***** out of the tank?
