    Does anyone know if you can increase sensitivity (in addition to stalk control) of the rain sensor on the screen? My rear view mirror fell off the screen and since ive glued it back on the sensitivity is really low (and its now stuck so firm i can take it off!)

    cheers

    I find that my auto wipers take too long to wipe. Basically the screen is near enough cover with raindrops before it wipes, even with the sensitivity turned right up. So i would also like to know if its possible to adjust it using vagcom, as at the current setting i tend to use manual control of wipers.

    you need to go to CE Module (09) then click coding. select option 3 from the top here before clicking long coding helper, then select byte 2 and change to your desired option.

    here is a pic of what it looks like on the light sensor option, next byte along is the rain sensor option
