    vagcom to increase rain sensor sensitivity?

    Does anyone know if you can increase sensitivity (in addition to stalk control) of the rain sensor on the screen? My rear view mirror fell off the screen and since ive glued it back on the sensitivity is really low (and its now stuck so firm i can take it off!)

    cheers

    I find that my auto wipers take too long to wipe. Basically the screen is near enough cover with raindrops before it wipes, even with the sensitivity turned right up. So i would also like to know if its possible to adjust it using vagcom, as at the current setting i tend to use manual control of wipers.
