    Turn ignition off then immediately pull down on the wiper ( as in the one wipe function position) they will then lift up in to service postion. Or in some cases you have to do it throught the drivers info system. Go in to the menu then set and its in there.

    As above, switch ignition on/off then pull down on the wiper stalk and the wipers slide up to the middle of the screen (service position) so you can lift them.

    Yes that will be the rainx, I never use that stuff on the front,only on side windows. Its a ***** to get off too.

    Some years ago I used Rainx on my front screen and the wipers would never run across it properly after that, so now I also only ever use it on the side windows and the door mirrors.
