Static droplets may not be detected on initial start-up. A single wipe should be used to clear the windscreen.


If the wash/wipe control is turned to the AUTO position, the wipers do not operate if either of the front doors are open.


In dry and often sunny conditions, optical influences and dirt accumulation on the windscreen may result in the windscreen wipers activating inadvertently. To prevent this, it is recommended that under these conditions, the wash/wipe control is returned to the OFF position.

The rain sensor is mounted on the inside of the windscreen, behind the rear-view mirror. The sensor is able to detect the presence and amount of water on the windscreen, and automatically activates the windscreen wipers accordingly.

To activate the rain sensitive wipers, move the wash/wipe control to the AUTO position. Rotate the collar (2) to adjust the behaviour of the system to suit the driver's preference.

The rain sensor feature can be enabled or disabled via the Vehicle settings menu in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.
