Autowipers

WARNINGS:

In icy conditions, make sure that thewindscreen has been fully defrostedbefore selecting autowipers.

Switch off the autowipers featurebefore entering a car wash.

Replace the wiper blades as soonas they begin to leave bands ofwater and smears or when they donot completely remove water from thewindscreen. If the blades are notreplaced, the rain sensor will continue todetect water on the windscreen. This willresult in the wipers continuing to operatealthough the majority of the windscreenis dry.

Note: The autowipers feature is intendedfor use during wet weather conditionsonly and is very sensitive to anythingwhich touches the windscreen near tothe rain sensor. Objects such as dirt, mistor flies hitting the windscreen in thislocation may cause the wipers to wipeeven though the windscreen is mostly dry.

Note: The autowipers feature should notbe selected when it is snowing, foggy orwhen the roads have been salted. Inthese weather conditions, select analternative position if necessary.

Thereafter, orwhen the ignition is switched on withautowipers selected, the wipers will notcycle until water is detected on thewindscreen. Alternatively, move the leverto another position and then selectautowipers, or operate the washer.
