Reversing

Reversing

On engaging reverse gear, if the front wiper is on, the rear wiper starts. Activation/deactivation of this function is possible in the menu "Personalisation- Configuration"of the "Main menu". Deactivation of this function is necessary when a bicycle carrier is installed on the tailgate.

Changing the wiper blades

The wipers should be stopped in the maintenance position (during replacement). Switch off the ignition and action the wipe stalk within one minute. The wipers will position themselves in the middle of the windscreen. For this, switch off the ignition then, within one minute, action the wiper stalk. The wipers will position themselves to the centre of the windscreen. For optimum wiping performance, replace the wiper blades as soon as they leave traces on the screen; otherwise change them once or twice per year (in spring and autumn, for example).

Always check that the windscreen and rear screen wipers can operate freely, for example if fitting a bicycle carrier, or in freezing temperatures. Remove any accumulation of snow from the base of the windscreen.
