• A worn or dirty wiper blade will obstruct visibility and reduce safety.
• Always note the corresponding warnings on  “Changing the front windscreen wiper blades”.

In icy conditions, always check that the wiper blade is not frozen to the glass before using the wiper for the first time. If you switch on the wiper when the wiper blade is frozen to the glass, this could damage both the wiper blade and the wiper motor.

• The windscreen wiper will only function when the ignition is switched on and the tailgate is closed.
• In reverse gear, with the windscreen wipers switched on, the rear windscreen wiper will make one wipe.
