wipers change

Post by foz » Tue Jan 14, 2020 3:40 pm

I can't get wipers in service position.
From manual:
● Close the bonnet
● Switch the ignition on and off.
● Press the windscreen wiper lever downwards
briefly
The same at this video

But It doesn't work for me. What I'm doing wrong?

This was the same with my S-Max . It was a bit of a faff!

That is exactly the sequence,
Bonnet shut
ignition on then off,
Then press down and hold down the wiper stalk. ( << are you holding the stalk down or briefly pressing it?)
They should go to service position.

I do. But wipers just clear windshield once and that's all. They don't go in service position.

Can you do a video from your phone of what happens?

Sounds like the ignition is still on as the wipers shouldn't have moved, perhaps you're doing down stroke too quickly
