Since day one, every time I use my rear wipers and use the fluid it continues to drip and leave streaks down the window. I'll continue to use the wipers while I'm driving to try and get rid of it, but once I park I come back to streaks. Also, the blue washer fluid? Is there anything with a lighter color I can use? My Telluride is white and I have blue lines going down the back that I have to wash off every time.

It’s a known issue there will be recall for that.

I'm taking my "Ride" in to get the seat fixed (There was an inch or so on the passenger seat that wasn't stitched together) and asked about the leaky rear washer fluid. He told me that it happened to another one and that the hose is too long so it leaks out the fluid that's left in the hose!? I guess he's going to trim the hose.

Please keep us posted on that repair.

I’ve noticed the same thing with mine as well. So is the dealership trimming the hose to fix this?

UPDATE: I took my vehicle into the dealership today to do my torn stitching and leaky rear wiper repair. Here's what they are doing, KIA decided that the only thing to do about the stitching is to replace the whole bottom cushion....which is $2,300 & coming from Korea, the leaky rear wiper has a kit to fix it and has to be ordered. So, if yours is leaking tell them so they can order the kit to fix that.

Any idea what the part number for the kit is? And did it actually fix it?
My dealer gave me the “I’m a unicorn” look when I asked.
Anyone else have any luck getting it fixed?Thanks

Ours is a 2020 SX P we picked up in late September of 19. Has the issue.
Mine too, but it kind of self-healed for now after a few uses. If it keeps doing it, I will request a fix when I take it in for an oil change and other TSB issues.

We are taking ours in for the headlight adjustment, voice recognition software update and window curtain hook issue.... trying to get the washer looked at too... but the advisor didn’t seem to eager to help. Gave excuse why it happens and acknowledging Kia knows. Figured I’d do some research. It leaking is more annoying than anything. 2 hours washing... first bump... water running down the window and onto the hatchback..
Glad yours stopped. Maybe ours will too...but it’s been 5 months... lol

Yeah, right? I have those same issues to resolve. Glad they are minor ones. Did you see this post in another thread?

I am not taking mine in for the "headlight adjustment".....why? Well.....I drive very little at night at the age I am at.....and.....when I do , I DO want the most light that I can get! LED lights are "blinding" to begin with...I see many coming at me that are "blinding" and has been that way for several years now, particularly with some of the "mod" lighting that some are doing....I don't think that our headlights are that out of line, but that being said, If I WERE younger, I probably would get the adjustment done.

yes, it's safer blinding the oncoming drivers so they can't see and end up coming left of center. I adjusted mine lower and they are still super bright and light up the road better than any headlights of any car I have had. You should get this done.
