    Question Disable auto rear wiper on reverse? (VCDS)

    Hi.

    My father recently bought a new A3 8V 2.0 TDi Quattro.
    He instantly fell in love with the car but there is one thing he doesnt like.

    Is it possible with VCDS to change so the rear wiper does NOT (auto) start when you select reverse, while the wiper stalk is on?

    Thanks in advance.

    Does he really spend that much time in reverse that it's so annoying?!

    It probably is possible, but I've never seen it mentioned on the VCDS websites or on here I don't think

    Just as easy to turn off the front wipers whilst reversing, then turn them back on again. That's what I do, hardly takes any time...

    When I first noticed this on my 8P i thought it was a fault at first.

    As it only does a single sweep I hardly even notice it now........the trick is to put the car in reverse gear before looking in the rear view mirrow or turning your head, in this way you will not see the single sweep

    Does it go once when the stork is in auto wipe mode whether it is wet or dry or does it only go when the front wipers are actually active?

    I believe only if the front ones have been going. In fact I'm almost 100% certain of this, I'm sure I'd have noticed it going every time I reverse otherwise - my wiper stalk is permanently in auto.
