Updated 7/23/2018

The windscreen wiper blades must be in service position when, for example, they are to be replaced.

Wiper blades in service position.

In order to change, clean or lift the wiper blades (e.g. for scraping off ice from the windscreen) they must be in service position.

Important

Before placing the wiper blades in the service position, make sure that they are not frozen down.

Activating service position

Service mode cannot be activated when the car is stationary and the windscreen wipers are not on. Service mode can be activated in two ways via the centre display:

Via function view

P5-1507-Serviceposition-button

Press the Wiper Service Position button. The light indicator in the button illuminates when the service position is activated. Upon activation, the wipers move to standing straight up.

Via settings

Press Settings in the top view.

Press My CarWipers.

Select Wiper Service Position.

The wipers move up to standing straight up.

Deactivating service position

Service mode can be deactivated in two ways via the centre display:

Via function view

P5-1507-Serviceposition-button

Press the Wiper Service Position button in the centre display. The light indicator in the button extinguishes when the service position is deactivated.

Via settings

Press Settings in the top view in the centre display.

Press My CarWipers.

Deselect Wiper Service Position to deactivate service position.

The wiper blades also exit service position if:

  • Windscreen wiping is activated.
  • Windscreen washing is activated.
  • Rain sensor activated.
  • The car is driven away.

Important

If the wiper arms in service position have been folded up from the windscreen, they must be folded back down onto the windscreen before the activation of wiping, washing or the rain sensor, as well as before driving. This is to avoid scraping the paint on the bonnet.
