If changing the wiper blades, they must be stopped in the maintenance position. For this, switch off the ignition and then within one minute move the wiper control stalk. The wipers stand up vertically.

After replacement, switch on the ignition and move the wiper control stalk so that the wipers resume their normal position.

Remark: The maintenance position can also be used in snowy conditions to avoid a build up of snow.
