  1. 1

    Place your Mazda 6 in "Park" and turn off the engine. Apply the parking brake and remove the keys from the ignition for safety.

  2. 2

    Tug the hood release latch located beneath the dashboard and to the left of the steering column.

    Hop out of your Mazda 6 and lift the secondary hood release latch beneath the center of the hood to access the engine compartment.

  4. 4

    Raise the engine prop rod out of its restraining clip and tuck it into the stay-hole on the underside of the hood. Pull gently on the hood to make sure it is firmly in place before continuing.

  5. 5

    Look for the windshield washer fluid reservoir in the bottom left corner of the engine compartment. It has a tall tube topped with a white plastic cap.

  6. 6

    Open the reservoir cap and place a funnel into the opening. Pour additional washer fluid into the reservoir until it's full.

  7. 7

    Remove the funnel, close the reservoir cap and lower the hood.
