    Question Rain sensitive wipers

    Im not sure if my Vectra should have rain sensitive wipers. If I should then they dont work! Does anyone know if all Vectra C's have rain sensitive wipers (and light sensitive headlighs for that matter) or did they only appear on the 2006 model?

    Cheers John, mine is a early 04. Might give the dealer a call and see if they know.

    Easiest way to tell is look at where the rearview mirror sticks to the screen, there is normally a purply coloured sensor there. That's yer rain sensor

    Mark's GSi 04 has them, but when he had the screen changed, it took forever for the stealers to sort out a new sensor, his still play up now and again.

    I have rain sensitive wipers GSI 52 plate, but they do play up from time to time. The wife has them on her 54 astra and they are spot on.

    Put the wiper switch on to the "first" notch then, pour water over the windscreen by the rear mirror, over the sensor[ don,t forget to put the ignition on], I have done this and it does activate the auto wipers, that shout prove if you have them on your motor, also do you have a "flick switch" on the top of the wiper switch arm, that should identify auto wipers too.

    You have to wait for the water to run, speckles wont set it off, a good vein of water does though.
