Changes to rain/light sensor reaction
Some possible reasons for malfunctions and misinterpretations in the sensor area of the rain/light sensor
View from the front could be:
Damaged wiper blades: damaged wiper blades can leave a film of water or streaks on the window, and this can extend the activation time, greatly shorten the
wiper intervals, or cause fast wiping time.
Insects: insects hitting the windshield may trigger the wipers.
Salt streaks: salt streaks on the windshield from driving in the winter can cause the wipers to wipe more frequently or continuously on a window that is almost
dry.
Dirt: dried dust, wax, any other build-up on the windshield (lotus effect), or washing product residue (car wash) can lower the sensitivity of the rain/light sensor
and cause it to react too slowly or not at all. Clean the sensor area for the rain/light sensor regularly and check the wiper blades for damage Exterior care
and cleaning.
Crack in the windshield: if a stone strikes and chips the sensor area while the rain/light sensor is on, this will trigger a wiper cycle. After that, the rain/light
sensor will detect this irregularity on the sensor surface and react to it. Depending on the size of the chip, the reaction behavior of the rain/light sensor may or
may not change.
If there is an obstacle for the wipers on the window glass, the wipers will attempt to remove it. If it continues to block the wipers, the wipers will stop moving.
1. Remove the obstacle and switch the wipers on again.
Mirrors
General safety precautions
Using the outside mirrors and the interior rearview mirror, the driver can observe traffic and adjust their driving based on traffic.
For driving safety, it is important that the driver adjusts the outside mirrors and the interior rearview mirror correctly before starting to drive.
It is not possible to oversee the entire side and rear area of the vehicle by looking in the outside and interior rearview mirrors. These areas that are not visible are
called blind spots. Other road users and objects could be in the blind spot.
WARNING
Adjusting the outside mirrors and interior rearview mirror while driving can distract the driver. This can cause accidents and serious or fatal injuries.
Only adjust the outside mirror and interior rearview mirror when the vehicle is stationary.
Always make sure that the mirrors are adjusted correctly and visibility to the rear is not limited by ice, snow, fog, or other objects.
WARNING
The view in the outside mirrors and interior rearview mirror does not cover the entire area around the side and rear of the vehicle. Other road users and objects
could be in these blind spots. This can cause accidents and serious or fatal injuries.
When parking, changing lanes, passing, and turning, always pay attention to your surroundings.
WARNING
Curved mirror surfaces (convex or aspheric) enlarge the field of vision and allow objects in the mirror to appear smaller and farther away. This can make it
difficult to estimate the exact distance from the vehicles behind, e.g. when changing lane. This can cause accidents and serious or fatal injuries.
Use the interior rearview mirror as much as possible to more accurately determine the distance to vehicles or other objects behind you.
Make sure there is sufficient visibility of the area behind the vehicle.

Manual air conditioning
Overview of the manual air conditioner
The manual climate control system warms, cools, and removes humidity from the air.
The air conditioner is most effective when the vehicle interior is kept closed. If there is a build-up of heat inside the vehicle, ventilation can help to speed up the
cooling process.
Certain functions of the air conditioner depend on the vehicle equipment.
