This is not necessary for your conversion. With headlight wipers the car got the bigger bottle but the pump remains the same.

- How could I turn on the headlight wipers? They are always on when I turn on the windscreen wipers (intermitent, 1st speed and 2nd speed)? Or they have a independent switch/button?
- How could I turn on the headlight washers? They work exactly the same as the windscreen ones (like a few wipes after a wash command)
- What is the function of the solenoid? Allow me to only bypass the water to the headlight washers when the lights are on? Or off?
The headlight wipers have no separate switch. When you turn on the headlights the headlight wipers will be automatically activated when the windscreen washers are switched on. If your headlights are off, the headlight wipers will do nothing.
Function of solenoid is following:
The car is equipped with one (!) washer pump with one(!) outlet if saloon. At the outlet is a t-piece in the hose to windscreen washers. One end is for windscreen and the other end leads to the solenoid. Solenoid has one inlet and two outlets - one for each headlight. Solenoid is activated, it lets water through to headlights. If it is not activated the water only sprays onto windscreen.
You need one more thing - a relay. I assume, that Brazilian Vectra are not equipped with any prepared cabling (European Vectra/Cavalier are). It is installed behind the inner fuse box. It is activated everytime you switch on windscreen washers but the power for solenoid and headlight wipers is fed by fuse F9 which is for interior lights, parking lamps (instrument lights and so on).
