    cant seem to find where the function ''teardrop'' is for the front wiper
    Ive found the rear one bit 03 byte 5 but cant see it for the front wiper.

    I just want check it,as it used to work then somehow it stopped working.

    It when the front wiper comes back for that final sweep.

    Yeah mine does it usually after about 10 seconds. I think its done on how long you spray the windows for.

    Checked this today and it's true - spray for a few seconds more and it sweeps again - why is it called teardrop though?
