NOTICE

If the ignition is switched off while the windscreen wiper is switched on, the windscreen wiper will continue to wipe on the same setting when the ignition is switched on again. If there is frost, snow or other obstructions on the windows, the windscreen wipers and wiper motor could become damaged.
  • Remove any snow and ice from the wipers before setting off.
  • Carefully detach wiper blades that have become frozen onto the windscreen Volkswagen recommends using a de-icer spray for this.

The windscreen wipers will only function when the ignition is switched on and the bonnet and tailgate are closed.

The interval wipe for the windscreen depends on the speed of the vehicle. The wipers will wipe more often as the vehicle moves faster.

The rear window wiper is switched on automatically if the front windscreen wipers are switched on and the reverse gear is engaged.
