    A3 8l - Annoying windscreen wipers habit

    Does anyone know if the annoying habit of the where the wiper blades go down further than their rest point then back up an inch or two is an option changeable on vag com? I hate this habit. When its raining the drivers side hits the scuttle panel, even though I have raised the wipers up a bit, when its raining on a motorway they stop half way up the windscreen, its rediculous. I would pay money to get them to act like normal!!

    That behaviour doesn't sound right. Are you sure that the mechanism is working correctly, maybe the linkage is slipping on the motor? I don't believe that this function is accessible using VCDS.

    Could it need a new motor?

    TBH to stick half way up the screen sounds like a fault, unless the spline thread has become worn & the wiper arm is slipping, I'd check that 1st tbh.
