PYYHKIMIEN TOIMINTA

CAUTION

Do not operate the wipers on a dry screen.

CAUTION

To avoid damage to the bonnet, do not lift the wipers when they are in the normal parked position. See PYYHKIMIEN HUOLTOASENTO.

CAUTION

Remove any snow, ice, or frost from the windscreen, around the wiper arms and blades, and the windscreen scuttle, before operating the wipers.

Vehicles with a rain sensor

  1. Automatic Rain sensing mode: The front wipers will respond and adapt automatically to the ambient rain conditions, selecting the appropriate wiper frequency for the prevailing conditions. The sensitivity of the system can be adjusted by rotating the collar (2).

    CAUTION

    Make sure the wipers are switched off before entering a car wash. If the automatic Rain sensing system operates during the car washing process, damage may occur to the wiper mechanism.

  2. Rotate the collar to adjust the sensitivity of the automatic Rain sensing mode when position (1) is selected. The higher the sensitivity position the more responsive the system will become.

    When automatic Rain sensing mode is selected, or when sensitivity is increased, the system will perform a single wipe.

  3. Low speed continuous wipe.

  4. High speed continuous wipe.

  5. Single wipe of the windscreen, or hold down for further continuous wipes.

  6. Windscreen wash/wipe: Pull and release to operate the front washers and wipers. The wipers will operate for 2 further wipes after the wiper/washer control is released. After a few seconds, a drip wipe will clear any residual washer fluid from the windscreen. If more washer fluid is required, pull and hold the wiper/washer control position.

    NOTES

    The front wipers will not operate while the bonnet is open.

Vehicles without a rain sensor

  1. Intermittent wipe: The time delay between wipes can be adjusted by rotating the collar (2).

    CAUTION

    Make sure the wipers are switched off before entering a car wash. If the wipers operate during the car washing process, damage may occur to the wiper mechanism.

  2. Rotate the collar to adjust the time delay between wipes when position (1) is selected. The higher the setting, the more frequently wipes will occur.

    NOTES

    Wipe frequency will increase with vehicle speed.

  3. Low speed continuous wipe.

  4. High speed continuous wipe.

  5. Single wipe of the windscreen, or hold down for further continuous wipes.

  6. Windscreen wash/wipe: Pull and release to operate the front washers and wipers. The wipers will operate for 2 further wipes after the wiper/washer control is released. After a few seconds, a drip wipe will clear any residual washer fluid from the windscreen. If more washer fluid is required, pull and hold the wiper/washer control position.

    NOTES

    The front wipers will not operate while the bonnet is open.

NOTES

If the wipers leave smears on the glass after the vehicle has been washed, this may be due to wax or other residue. Should this occur, clean the glass with the recommended screen cleaning fluid. See VOITELUAINEET JA NESTEET.

NOTES

The windscreen will no longer be wiped effectively and the automatic Rain sensing function will degrade if the wipers become worn. Always replace worn or damaged wiper blades as soon as possible. The wipers service position will move the wipers to allow wiper blade replacement. See PYYHKIMIEN HUOLTOASENTO.

NOTES

If the wiper blades become stuck or jammed, an electronic cut-out will temporarily halt the wiper's operation. If this happens, switch off the wipers and the vehicle's ignition, when safe to do so. Clear any obstructions and free the wiper blades, before attempting to switch on the ignition.
