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 wipers will move to the service position when activated. To deactivate the service position, tap Wiper Service Position once. The indicator light in the button will go out when service position is deactivated.

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

  • The windshield wipers are turned on.
  • The windshield washers are turned on.
  • The rain sensor is activated.
  • The vehicle begins moving.

CAUTION

If the wiper arms in service position are raised from the windshield, they must be folded back against the windscreen before activating wiping, washing or rain sensor as well as before departure. This is to prevent scratching the paint on the hood.
