WIPER OPERATION

  1. Automatic Rain sensing mode: The front wipers will respond and adapt automatically to the ambient rain conditions, selecting the appropriate wiper frequency for the prevailing conditions. The sensitivity of the system can be adjusted by rotating the collar (2).

    CAUTION

    Make sure the wipers are switched off before entering a car wash. If the automatic Rain sensing system operates during the car washing process, damage may occur to the wiper mechanism.

  2. Rotate the collar to adjust the sensitivity of the automatic Rain sensing mode when position (1) is selected. The higher the sensitivity position, the more responsive the system will become.

    When automatic Rain sensing mode is selected, or when sensitivity is increased, the system will perform a single wipe.

  3. Low speed continuous wipe.

  4. High speed continuous wipe.

  5. Single wipe of the windshield, or hold down for further continuous wipes.

  6. Windshield wash/wipe: Pull and release to operate the front washers and wipers. The wipers will operate for 2 further wipes after the control is released. After a few seconds, a drip wipe will clear any residual washer fluid from the windshield. If more washer fluid is required, pull and hold the control position.

  7. ON: Rear wiper intermittent operation. Frequency increases with vehicle speed.

  8. Rear window wash/wipe: Press and release to operate the rear washer and wiper. The wiper will operate in a set cycle, to minimize drips when the button is released. If more washer fluid is required, push and hold the button.

    NOTES

    When Reverse (R) gear is selected and the front wipers are operating, the rear wiper will activate.

    NOTES

    The rear wiper will not operate while the tailgate is open.

Drip wipe on the windshield can be enabled/disabled by a Retailer/Authorized Repairer.

CAUTION

Do not operate the wipers on a dry windshield.

CAUTION

In freezing or hot conditions, make sure the wipers have not stuck to the glass. Lift the wiper blades away from the screen when the ignition is off.

CAUTION

Remove any snow, ice, or frost from the windshield, around the wiper arms and blades, and the windshield scuttle, before operating the wipers.

CAUTION

Make sure the wipers are switched off before entering a car wash. If the automatic Rain sensing system operates during the car washing process, damage may occur to the wiper mechanism.

NOTES

If the wipers leave smears on the glass after the car has been washed, this may be due to wax or other residue. Should this occur, clean the glass with the recommended Land Rover screen cleaning paste. See LUBRICANTS AND FLUIDS.

NOTES

The windshield will no longer be wiped effectively and the automatic Rain sensing function will degrade if the wipers become worn. Always replace worn or damaged wiper blades as soon as possible.

NOTES

If the wiper blades become stuck or jammed, an electronic cut-out will temporarily halt operation of the wipers. If this happens, switch off the wipers and the vehicle's ignition, when safe to do so. Clear any obstructions and free the wiper blades, before attempting to switch on the ignition.

The wipers service position will move the wipers, to allow wiper blade replacement. See WIPERS SERVICE POSITION.
