wiper question
#1
When I switch on the windscreen wipers after starting the engine the rear wiper operates for a few times then stops, sometimes for a longer duration than others. The rear switch is set to off. Is this a normal feature or is it the Herbielike personality coming out again? Confusedcratch:
Anyone experienced this? Confusedtudy:

Probably unlikely, but you are not in reverse gear are you??

Mine has done this on occasion when it's raining. Sometimes the rear wiper comes on for a few wipes by itself (although switched off) when it starts to rain. Not often enough to worry about.
2010 Berlingo Multispace HDi 110 with FAP.  Persamos green.

My Clio used to do that.
And if front wipers were on, rear came on when you select reverse.

Well yes, I guess I am, didnt think about that but it is when I reverse out of the drive I notice it. Can it be that?

they are designed to come on when you are in reverse when the front wipers are switched on
