Headlight cleaning system

66

The windscreen wipers and the wash system only operate if the ignition is
switched on and the bonnet and boot are closed

1)

.

WARNING

Do not use the windscreen washer system at low temperatures, without
heating the windscreen beforehand. The window washer fluid could other-
wise freeze on the windscreen and restrict the view to the front.

CAUTION

If the windscreen wipers are in rest position, they cannot be folded out from

the windscreen. The wipers must be set to the service position to raise them
off the windscreen 

» page 166

.

In cold temperatures and during the winter, check before switching on the

ignition that the wiper blades are not frozen to the windscreen. If the wind-
screen wipers are switched on when the blades are frozen to the windscreen,
this may damage both the blades and windscreen wiper motor!

Carefully separate frozen windscreen wiper blades from the windscreen and

free from snow and ice.

Handle the windscreen wipers with care - there is a risk of damage to the

windscreen by the windscreen wiper arms.

Do not switch on the ignition when the wiper arm is raised from the wind-

screen - there is a risk of damage to the bonnet by the wiper arms.

If there is an obstacle on the windscreen, the wipers will try to push away

the obstacle five times. The wipers then stop to prevent themselves from be-
ing damaged. Only switch the wipers on again after the obstacle has been re-
moved.

1)

On vehicles which do not have a contact switch for the bonnet, the windshield wiper and wash system
operates also when the bonnet is opened.

64

Using the system

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note

Each time the ignition switches off for the third time, the position of the

windscreen wipers changes. This counteracts an early fatigue of the wiper rub-
bers.

The windscreen washer nozzles for the windscreen are heated when the en-

gine is running and the outside temperature is less than +10 °C.

WARNING

The seat backs in occupied rear seats must be properly engaged.

When transporting objects in the luggage compartment that has been en-

larged by folding the backrest forward, ensure the safety of the passengers
transported on the other rear seats.

The seat backrests must be securely locked in position so that no objects

in the luggage compartment can slide into the passenger compartment on
sudden braking – There is a risk of injury.

CAUTION

When moving the seat backrest, the seat belts should not be trapped - there is
a risk of damage to the seat belts.

CAUTION

Before folding the rear middle seat forward, make sure that the storage com-

partment, the ashtray and the cup holder in the rear part of the centre console
are closed - risk of damage.

Only keep the seats in the folded forward position for as long as necessary to

transport cargo - there is a risk of damaging the front seat backrests. The
seats must be folded back once the cargo has been transported.

If the outer seat is not in the rear end position when folding forward, damage

can occur to the locking bolts when unlocking the seat.
