I didn't think the Type-R had headlight washers

Type R's from MY 09 started to come with HID's as standard so will have headlight washers. Cars before this won't have.

Don't think that is true - just looking at the Type-R 2009 spec and no mention of HIDs - also looking online at Honda Civic Type R | Book Test Drive | Specification, Finance & Information no mention of HIDs

Anyway if you have HIDs - you do have headlight washers - which get washed at the same time you wash the front windows

Yes HID's were introduced with the 2009 model year along with the USB connector for the audio.

Button on the dash to the right of the rev counter on the Type R.



As has been said, when the range was facelifted, Type R got HIDs and the non GT model was deleted from the range.

Not all 09 registered cars will have HID as there will be some older stock that was reg'd as 09 but if it has the USB socket then it will be the updated model with HID etc etc.

There is a button on the dash to operate the washers. They also operate automatically if the lights are on the first time you use the windscreen washer.... subsequent use of the windscreen washer will not operate them though.
