Hello All,
I find my auto wipe wiper function does not work properly - even when I increase the speed - I have to flick the manual flick - is there a problem here - I am waiting to take it to the dealer.

cheers

This is a common problem at this time of year with all the crud being sprayed up from the road 'confusing' the sensor which looks through the windscreen from behind the rear view mirror. Simple solution - just take a cloth and some concentrated windscreen cleaner fluid and give the outside of the windscreen a really thorough clean and de-grease.

If that doesn't do it, then the sensor could be faulty and need replacing, but in my 8 years of ownership it has always been a dirty windscreen. Good luck!
