Windscreen wiper

With the ignition on, move stalk 1 parallel to the steering wheel:

A Park

B Intermittent wiping

The wipers will pause for several seconds between sweeps. It is possible to change the time between sweeps by turning ring 2.

C Normal wiping speed

D Fast wiping speed

Special note

When the vehicle is being driven, the wiping speed slows down whenever the vehicle stops. For example, fast wiping speed will slow to normal wiping speed. As soon as the vehicle moves off, wiping will return to the speed originally selected.

If stalk 1 is operated, it overrides and cancels the automatic function.

Automatic wiper function

(depending on vehicle)

With the engine running, move stalk 1.

A Park

B Automatic wiper function

When this position is selected, the system detects the presence of water on the windscreen and triggers wiping at a suitable wiping speed. The triggering threshold and the time between sweeps can be adjusted by turning ring 2.

NB: in foggy weather or during snowfalls, the wiping is not automatically triggered and remains under the driver’s control.

C Normal wiping speed

D Fast wiping speed

If for any reason the wipers are jammed (e.g. frozen to windscreen by ice etc.), the system will automatically cut the power supply to the wipers.

Windscreen wiper

With the ignition on, pull stalk 1 towards you.

A brief pull will trigger a single sweep of the wipers, in addition to the windscreen washer.

A longer pull will trigger three sweeps of the wipers followed, a few seconds later, by a fourth, in addition to the windscreen washer.

In freezing or snowy weather, ensure they are not stuck to the windscreen (including the central area located behind the interior rear-view mirror) before starting the wipers (risk of motor overheating).

Before any action on the windscreen (washing the vehicle, de-icing, cleaning the windscreen, etc.) return stalk 1 to position A (off).

Risk of injury and/or damage.

Efficiency of a wiper blade

Check the condition of the wiper blades. How long they last depends on you:

- it must remain clean: clean the blade and the screen regularly with soapy water;

- do not use it when the screen is dry;

- free it from the screen when it has not been used for a long time.

Replace wiper blades as soon as their performance starts to diminish: Approximately every year (refer to the information on “Wiper blades” in section 5).

Precautions for using the wipers

- In freezing or snowy weather, clear the screen before starting the wipers (risk of motor overheating);

- ensure that no objects are obstructing the travel of the blade.
