    Have noticed the rear wiper on my car wipes when I select reverse, I know from the manual it is supposed to do this if the front wipers are activated but mine does this when they are off /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Anyone else get this ?

    Spin, are you sure the front wipers are off. Reason i ask is that if you use the front wipers and then switch off the ignition with the wiper stalk activated, then when you start up again the front wipers stay off but the rear wipe function remains active. Totally effing annoying /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif

    I had the automatic back wiper function turned off at the local repair place. Much better now when back wiper doesn't do anything if I don't say so.
