|Windscreen wiper response in various situations:|
|When the vehicle is stationary:||When switched on, the wipers will temporarily be switched to the next setting down.|
|While the wash and wipe system is running:||The Climatronic will switch to air recirculation mode for approximately 30 seconds to prevent the smell of the windscreen washer fluid from entering the vehicle interior.|
|When the interval wipe is switched on:||The wiper intervals are adjusted depending on the vehicle speed. The faster the vehicle is travelling, the shorter the interval.|
Heated windscreen washer jets
The heating only defrosts frozen windscreen washer jets. It does not heat the hoses that the water flows through. The heated windscreen washer jets control their heat output automatically when the ignition is switched on. The heating level depends on the ambient temperature.
Headlight cleaning system
The headlight cleaning system cleans the lenses on the headlights.
Once the ignition has been switched on, the headlights will be washed the first time and then every fifth time the windscreen washer system is used. To do this, pull the windscreen wiper lever towards the steering wheel when the dipped headlights or main beam are switched on. Clean off stubborn dirt (insects, etc.) from the headlights at regular intervals, for instance when filling the tank.
In winter, you should remove any snow from the headlight washer nozzles in the bumper to keep the headlight washer system in working order. Remove any ice with a de-icer spray.
The wiper will try to wipe away any obstacles that are on the windscreen. The wiper will stop moving if the obstacle blocks its path. Remove the obstacle and switch the wiper back on again.
