Wiper blades not wiping when using washer fluid?

Post by Dsh694 » Tue Feb 12, 2019 11:29 am

When I release screenwash onto the front windscreen, the wiper blades don't wash it away automatically. I have to manually wipe them so basically if i do nothing i'm just left with a load of fluid on the front windscreen.

Is this normal or defective? Have i disabled something by accident maybe?

How long are you pulling the arm for? Should kick in automatically, have you been 'coding'?

You need to hold it for about a second to trigger the auto wipe, any shorter and it will spray but not wipe.

... which is really useful to get dried on bugs off in summer; I do that at lights or whilst stationary in traffic to soak them before using the wipers to remove them. Saves unnecssary wear on the blades trying to scrape them.
E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.

Gone (East), but apparently not forgotten.
