On later models, it is possible to set the wiper blades to their vertical (maintenance) position by first switching the ignition on and off, then within one minute move the wiper control stalk. To return the blades to their normal position, switch the ignition on and move the wiper control stalk.
Check the condition of the wiper blades; if they are cracked or show any signs of deterioration, or if the glass swept area is smeared, renew them. Wiper blades should be renewed annually.
On front wipers, move the blade down the arm to disengage the mounting block, then slide the blade from the arm.
To remove the rear wiper blade, pull the arm fully away from the screen until it locks. Swivel the blade through 90º, then unclip from the arm.
