The windshield wipers must be in the service position when replacing, washing or lifting the blades (e.g. to scrape ice or snow from the windshield).

CAUTION

Before placing the wipers in service position, ensure that they have not frozen to the windshield.

Activating/deactivating service position

The service position can be activated/deactivated when the vehicle is stationary and the windshield wipers are switched off. Service position is activated/deactivated via Function view in the center display:

The wiper blades will also move out of the service position if:
