    When the variable intermittent switch is set to lowest that turns on the auto wipers, setting it to anything else makes them manual - I thought.

    To be fair stan generally i think there quite good, albeit still a little too sensitive on the minimum setting, due to them being a little sensitive they tend to wipe the screen when its not really wet enough, thus my screen has really fine scratches in the sweep area and this must be caused when wipers are dragged across a dusty screen rather than gliding over a wet screen, the car has only covered 30k and screen is scratched to hell, whereas my audi has done nearly 70k, still on original screen with no scratches in sight and this car has regular manually operated wipers.:eyebrows:

    Is there a switch behind the rear view mirror that can make it slow down like a switch on a christmas lights? If yes it would be easy.
