Rear screen wiper

With the ignition on, turn ring 3 on stalk 1 to align the symbol with mark 2.

  • stop;

  • intermittent wiping.

    The wipers will pause for several seconds between sweeps. Wiping frequency varies with vehicle speed;

  • slow continuous wiping.

To stop the operation, pivot ring 3 again.

Note: When washing using a roller type car wash, return the ring 3 on the stalk 1 to the stop position to deactivate automatic wiping.

Follow usage recommendations.

Before any action involving the rear screen (washing the vehicle, de-icing, cleaning, etc.) return stalk 1 to the stop position.

Risk of injury and/or damage.


Check the condition of the wiper blades. You are responsible for their service life:
  • they must remain clean: clean the blades, windscreen and rear screen regularly with soapy water;
  • do not use them when the windscreen or rear screen are dry;
  • free them from the windscreen or rear screen when they have not been used for a long time.

In all cases, replace them as soon as they begin to lose efficiency: approximately once a year.

Before using the rear wiper, check that no object obstructs the travel of the blade.

Do not use the wiper arm to open or close the tailgate.

Activation/deactivation of the rear screen wiper (depending on the vehicle) Engaging reverse gear triggers intermittent wiping (if the front wipers are in operation). If your vehicle is fitted with a vehicle settings customisation menu, you can opt to activate or deactivate this function.

In the event of obstacles present on the rear window (dirt, snow, etc.), the wiper will try to sweep away all the obstacles.

If an obstacle prevents the blade from moving, it can be stopped. Remove the obstacle, wait for around 30 seconds and reactivate the wiper using the wiper stalk.


  • In the event of ice, check whether the blades are stuck to the windscreen before operating the wiping mechanism. If you activate the wiper while the blade is blocked by ice, you risk damaging both the blade and the wiping motor.
  • Do not activate the wipers on a dry screen. This will lead to the premature wear or damage to the blades.
