    Default Automatic rear wipers

    Noticed something on my 05 Estate the other day. It was raining and had my front wipers on, selected reverse to back into my drive and noticed the rear wipers were on intermittent. Now I couldn't remember if I had left them on previously in the journey so experimented. There is obviously a software link to get them working when its raining and reverse is selected. Is that cool or what??? You had to buy a £50 k merc to get that 10 years ago. Ain't Canbus wonderful........... Suppose it works on Hatchbacks as well

    My hatchback does it... I was jealous when I discovered that Corsas do it as well!

    On the Signum, depending in how fast the front wipers are going on auto setting, the rear wiper (If on, obviously) varies the "intermittent" gap timing. I. e, wipers interval short on the front ditto on the rear and vice-versa. I assume the Veccy is the same?

    Yeah the Veccy is the same on both counts peeps; the rear comes on when reverse is selected and also the intermittent wipe speeds up with the fronts.
