    Default Auto Rear Wiper

    Is there anyeay to disable the feature where the rear wiper goes when you put the car into reverse and have the front wiprers switched on.

    I want to put a high mount bike rack on and it has a section which rest on the glass, don't want the wiper going off if I forget I have my fronts on

    Cheers

    I haven't seen anything in the manual that says it can be disabled. Try a dealer as it might be disable it via Tech 2.

    Otherwise put a big sticker on the steering wheel when the rack is on.

    As above, not aware of any way of disabling that feature - other than possibly Tech 2.

    You'll just have to make sure you're fronts are off before you select reverse!

    Thought I hadn't seen anything either, don't want to go the TECH2 route as I wouldn't use the rack that often.

    Will have to be very careful

    Cheers

    Maybe you could unplug the power at the motor or if that sends the canbus mad why not just unbolt the wiper from the splined arm if its just for a short time?
