I have had my Qashqai 2008 model for 12 months now and only yesterday found out that the headlamps had a washer facility like that used on the windscreen.
I first noticed what I thought was water spray coming from the engine compartment on the right hand side above the water bottle. With the engine running I activated the windscreen washer a few times then saw the headlamp washer come out on a stalk thingy and sprayed the headlamp It appears from the manual that it only works after the windscreen washer has been use 5 times in any one journey.

Guess you have a J10 Tekna with Xenon headlights?

They are a legal requirement as Xenons get hot and any dirty water splashed on them would dry and obscure the light from them.
