When putting on bigger wheels and tires the big washer bottle in front of the driver side tire usually rubs on the tire during fast right turn cornering so you can remove it and just use the little washer bottle and that switch.

I've never seen another car with 2 windsheild washer bottles and pumps, but I wouldn't be surprised if some old Mercedes does too.
I see... I don't have that switch...
