Windscreen wipers and washers

Introduction

The windscreen wipers and the wash system operate if the ignition is switched

on and the bonnet and boot are closed.

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 290

.

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 release the frozen-on windscreen wiper blades from the wind-

screen and remove snow and ice.

Handle the windscreen wipers with care - there is the risk of damaging the

windscreen with the windscreen wiper arms.

Do not switch on the ignition when the front windscreen wiper arms are fol-

ded down - there is the danger of damaging the bonnet by the windscreen

wiper arms.

Note

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

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

Headlight cleaning system

Read and observe   and   on page 79 first.

Headlights are cleaned under the following conditions.

The low beam is switched on.
The outside temperature is about -12° C to +39° C.

To clean the headlights, the headlamp is also sprayed after spraying the wind-

screen every first and tenth time. Setting the spray interval can be carried out

by a specialist garage.
To ensure the correct functioning of the system, even in winter, this needs to

be regularly cleared of snow and ice (e.g. using the de-icing spray).

Rear view mirror

Introduction

WARNING

Exterior mirrors increase the field of view, however, make objects appear

smaller and further away. Therefore, use the rear-view mirror to determine

the distances to the following vehicles.

WARNING

The mirrors with automatic dimming contain electrolyte fluid which may

leak if the mirror glass is broken - this can irritate skin, eyes and the respira-

tory system.

If your eyes or skin come into contact with the electrolytic fluid, immedi-

ately wash the affected area for a few minutes long with a lot of water.

Seek medical assistance if required.

vice can affect the function of the rear-view mirror - it could cause an acci-

dent.

Automatic mirror dimming only operates correctly if the light striking the

sensor is not affected by other objects. The sensors are located on the

front and back of the mirror.
