Windshield Wiper/Washer Stalk

Cleaning Windshield

The windshield wipers can start wiping unintentionally when switched on.

  • Always switch off windshield wipers before cleaning the windshield to avoid unintentional operation (rain sensor operation).


Risk of damage to the engine compartment lid, windshield and wiper system.

  • Only wipe the windshield when sufficiently wet, otherwise it could become scratched.
  • Loosen frozen wiper blades before starting to drive.
  • Do not operate a frozen headlight washer system.
  • Always switch off windshield wipers in car washes to prevent them wiping unintentionally (rain sensor operation).
  • Do not operate headlight washer system in car washes.
  • Always switch off windshield wipers before cleaning the windshield to avoid unintentional operation (rain sensor operation).
  • Always hold the wiper arm securely when replacing the wiper blade.
  • Always switch off windshield wipers before opening the engine compartment lid (wiper switch in position 0). If the wiper arms are not in their end position, they will automatically move to this position when the engine compartment lid is opened, even if the ignition is switched off. The wiper arms remain at this position until the lid is closed and the wiper system is switched off and then on again.
