Rain sensitive wash wipe not working

Post by Purplemeanie » Sat Oct 17, 2020 11:42 am

Anyone else having problems with their rain activated wash wipe. Mine wipes once when I turn it on then doesn't wipe at all - no matter how much rain falls on the windscreen.

Tried changing the sensitivity switch on the stalk from lowest to highest to see if that gave it a nudge, but made no difference and did not induce a wipe when I changed the setting.

Also tried throwing jugs of water at the windscreen to see if I could activate it but just get the one wipe moving from off to intermittent.

I suspect its faulty. Or is this a common problem that will need an "upgrade"?

After posting this here I asked the dealer and they got back straight away to say that they thought it was a fault and I should book it in to be looked at.

I'll post back here when I've had it investigated.
