switched off Ensure that the wipers are switched off before entering a car wash. If the rain sensitive wipers operate during the car washing process, damage may occur to the wiper mechanism.

The rain sensor is able to detect the presence and amount of rain/dirt/snow on the windscreen and automatically activates the windscreen wipers accordingly. Static droplets may not be detected on initial start-up, use a single wipe to clear the screen.

To activate the rain sensitivity wipers, move the wiper stalk to the rain sensor position (4). A single wipe will be actioned.

Adjust the rain sensitivity collar (1) as required.

Increasing sensitivity while position (4) is selected will action a single wipe.

If a front door is opened while the wipers are operating, the wipers will be disabled.

Operation will restart when the doors are closed again.
