    hi all
    sorry for stupid question but is there any way of doing a short squirt (ooer)?
    On all other cars I have, mainly BMWs, its possible to just do a short pull on the washer lever and get a bit of spray, but on the RS3 it seems to insist on a 2 second mega spray, which isnt great if you have just washed the car!
    thanks in advance

    That is super useful - how can I change this with ODB11?

    Go to Central Electronics then Adaptation.
    Use the search function at the top of the screen to search for "wiper"
    Select "Front_Wiper" from the list.
    The two functions that you are looking for are:
    Timer_DRP_SRA_Delay &
    Mindestwaschzeit_Frontwischer

    Thanks for that Sean, a much needed mod especially with the A6 washer jets fitted, as they seem to use more water than the standard jets.
