Windscreen wash/wipe system

Moving windscreen wipers to service position

Note The front lid must be completely closed if the wiper motor needs to be run during repair work (the voltage supply to the wiper motor is cut off when the front lid is open).

  • At sub-zero temperatures, first check that the wiper blades are not frozen onto the glass.
  • Switch on ignition briefly and then switch off.
  • Operate "touch wipe" function within 10 seconds.
    • The wipers will run to the "service position".
Caution

The bonnet can be damaged if the wipers are allowed to run back to the park position.

  • Do not move the vehicle when the wiper arms are lifted up off the windscreen.
  • The windscreen wipers automatically run back to the park position when the wiper switch is operated or when road speed exceeds 6 km/h.
