Move the lever to the corresponding position:

(0) Windshield wipers off

(1) Rain sensor/intermittent mode. The windshield wipers switch on once the vehicle speed exceeds approximately 2 mph (4 km/h) and it is raining. The higher the sensitivity of the rain sensor that is set (switch (6) to the right), the earlier the windshield wipers react to moisture on the windshield. You can deactivate the rain sensor mode, which switches the interval mode on. In intermittent mode, you can adjust the interval time using the switch (6).

(2) Slow wiping

(3) Fast wiping

(4) Single wipe. If you hold the lever in this position longer, the wipers switch from slow wiping to fast wiping.

(5) Clean the windshield. The number of wipes and afterwipes depends on how long the lever is held in position (5).

The wipers wipe one time after several seconds of driving to remove water droplets. You can switch this function off by moving the lever to position (5) within ten seconds of the afterwipe. The afterwipe function is reactivated the next time you switch the ignition on.

If you hold the Lever in position (5) for longer than half a second, the edge wiping feature will be activated. This moves the windshield wipers closer to the edge of the windshield and performs an afterwipe to clean the residue that results from the wiping process from the edge of the windshield. The function is available when driving at speeds up to 75 mph (120 km/h).

The headlight washer system* operates only when the low beam headlights are on. If you move the lever into position (5), the headlights will be cleaned at fixed intervals.

Applies to: vehicles with rear window wiper: (7)

Wiping the rear window . The number of wipes depends on the windshield wiper movement.

The rear wiper automatically switches on when the reverse gear is selected and the front windshield wipers are on and running.

Applies to: vehicles with rear window wiper: (8) - Cleaning the rear window . The number of wipes depends on how long the Lever is held in position (8).

This may also clean the rearview camera, depending on the vehicle equipment.
