    Unhappy I've just found something annoying about my Vectra

    ....the fact that the wipers self park after the ignition is off and key removed.

    It means I can't leave them vertical with a sheet of newspaper under them to stop ice forming

    ahh..but you can..have a look in the handbook and have a look about the bit about changing your wipers...after turning off the ignition...keep the stalk pressed down..and they will move into the 'mid' position!!

    Yes they should park in the 'UP' position to ease the change of wiper blades

    Servis setting for front wipers,eg for cleaning or changing the blades,within 8 seconds of switching off the ignition,press the wiper stalk downwards,release the stalk as soon as the wiper blades are vertical.
