    Default Rain sensitive wipers rant..

    The rain sensitive wipers are not er very sensitive, and have started to do my head in..ie not enough rain and the visibility is poor and it doesnt wipe frequently enough so you end up using the flick wipe and thats on full sensitivity setting with the wheel on the stork to the extreme left.

    What i want to know is ??can i do away with the rain sense wipers,and just have normal intermitent wipers with the pre programmed speeds or have got to lump it with the above.

    No not to my knowledge but if the prevoius owner did there is no evidence of a new screen fitted.

    No need to change the stork as they are all the same, it just needs to be tech2'd out. Maybe you could remove all the bits/harness and give them to me as an early xmas prezzie
