    Default Bike rack

    I have a bike rack, and was wondering how you can turn off the rear wiper. What i mean is if its raining and you have your wipers on and then select reverse, the rear wiper activates.
    So if the bike rack is sat on the rear window (Hatch Back) the wiper wont be able to travel, and therefore strain the motor. So is there any way off disableing the rear wiper when selecting reverse gear?

    Easiest way is just to completely remove the wiper arm while the bike rack is on
