Rear fog lights

Turn centre ring 7 on the stalk 

until the symbol faces mark 2, then re-

lease it.
Operation of the fog lights depends on 

the exterior lighting selected, and an in-

dicator light will light up on the instru-

ment panel.
Do not forget to switch off the fog lights 

when they are no longer needed, to 

avoid inconveniencing other road 

users.

rior lights are switched off.

Cornering lights

(depending on vehicle)
Whenever the dipped beam headlights 

are on and under certain conditions (at 

speed, the steering wheel at an angle, 

in forward gear, the indicator lights on, 

etc.), when taking a corner one of the 

front fog lights will come on to light the 

inside of the bend.

When driving in fog or snow, or 

when transporting objects which are 

higher than the roof, the headlights 

do not come on automatically.
Switching on the fog lights remains 

the responsibility of the driver: the

WINDSCREEN WASH, WIPE 

(1/6)

Special note

When driving the vehicle, the wiping 

speed slows down whenever the ve-

hicle stops. For example, fast wiping 

speed will slow to normal wiping speed. 

As soon as the vehicle moves off, 

wiping will return to the speed originally 

selected.

If stalk 1 is operated, it overrides and 

cancels the automatic function.

Efficiency of a wiper blade

Check the condition of the wiper 

blades. How long they last depends 

on you:
–  it must remain clean: clean the 

blade and the screen regularly 

with soapy water;

–  do not use it when the screen is 

dry;

–  free it from the screen when it has 

not been used for a long time.

In any event, replace them as soon 

as they begin to lose efficiency: ap-

proximately every year (refer to the 

information on “Wiper blades: re-

placement” in section 5).

Precautions for using the 

wipers

–  In freezing or snowy weather, 

clear the screen before starting 

the wipers (risk of motor over-

heating);

–  ensure that no objects are ob-

structing the travel of the blade.

Vehicle fitted with front 

windscreen wiper rain sensor

The rain sensor is located on the winds-

creen, in front of the interior rear-view 

mirror.

  A single sweep

A short push will trigger one sweep 

of the wipers.

  B stop

  C  automatic wiper function

When this position is selected, the 

system detects water on the wind-

screen and triggers the wipers at a 

suitable wiping speed. It is possi-

ble to change the triggering thresh-

old and the time sweeps by turning 

ring 2:

–  F : minimum sensitivity

–  G : maximum sensitivity

The higher the sensitivity, the quic-

ker the wipers will react and the 

faster the wipe.

When activating automatic wiping or 

when increasing sensitivity, one sweep 

of the blades is performed.
Note: 
–  

the rain sensor is only intended as a 

driving aid. In the event of reduced 

visibility, the driver should manually 

activate the wipers. In foggy weather 

or during snowfalls, wiping is not au-

tomatically triggered and remains 

under the driver’s control;

–  

in the event of temperatures below 

zero, automatic wiping is not acti-

vated when the vehicle is started. It 

is automatically activated as soon as 

the vehicle exceeds a certain speed 

(approximately 5 mph (8 km/h));

–  

do not activate automatic wiping in 

dry weather; 

–  

fully de-ice the windscreen before 

activating automatic wiping.

  D  slow continuous wiping

  E  fast continuous wiping

Operating fault
In the event of a malfunction of the au-

tomatic wiping, the wiper is set to inter-

mittent wiping. Contact an authorised 

dealer.
The operation of the rain sensor can be 

disturbed in the event of:
–  

damaged windscreen wiper blades; 

a film of water or traces left by a 

blade in the sensor’s detection zone 

may increase the response time of 

the automatic wiper, or increase the 

wiping frequency;

–  

a windscreen with any chip or crack 

level with the sensor, or a windscreen 

covered in dust, dirt, insects, ice, the 

use of washing wax and water-repel-

lent chemicals; the windscreen wiper 

will be less sensitive or may even not 

react at all.

Special note
When driving the vehicle
, the wiping 

speed slows down whenever the vehi-

cle stops. For example, fast wiping 

speed will slow to normal wiping speed. 

As soon as the vehicle moves off, 

wiping will return to the speed originally 

selected.

If stalk 1 is operated, it overrides and 

cancels the automatic function.

Precautions
–  

In the event of ice, check whether the 

blades are stuck to the windscreen 

before operating the wiping mecha-

nism. If you activate the wipers while 

the blades are stuck down with ice, 

you may risk damaging both the 

blade and the wiper motor.

–  

Do not activate the wipers on a dry 

screen. This will lead to premature 

wear or damage to the blades.

Positions  A and D are accessible 

with the ignition on. Positions C 

and E are accessible only with the 

engine running.

Before any action involving 

the windscreen (washing 

the vehicle, de-icing, 

cleaning the windscreen, 

etc.) return stalk 1 to position B 

(stop).
Risk of injury and/or damage.

In the event of obstacles on the 

windscreen (dirt, snow, ice, etc.), 

clean the windscreen (including the 

central area located behind the in-

terior rear view mirror) and the rear 

screen before starting the wipers 

(risk of motor overheating).
If an object is preventing a blade 

from moving, it may stop function-

ing. Remove the obstacle and react-

ivate the wiper using the wiper stalk.

WINDSCREEN WASH, WIPE 

(4/6)

Note:

Once the wipers have been switched 

off, at least 1 minute after locking the 

vehicle, it is possible to manually move 

the blades. Do not force the blade arms 

to move. This may risk damage to the 

wiper motor, the arms and the blades.
After your intervention, to reposition the 

blades correctly, make sure the blades 

are resting on the windscreen, switch 

on the ignition and activate the wiper 

control.
The blade on the driver’s side must 

always be above the passenger blade. 

If this is not the case, a quick sweep of 

the windscreen wipers should be per-

formed once the vehicle is travelling at 

over 4 mph (7 km/h).

Specific front wiper position 

(service position)

This position enables the blades to be 

lifted to remove them from the winds-

creen.
This can be useful:

–  to clean the blades;

–  to release the blades from the winds-

creen in winter;

– replace the blades (refer to the 

“Wiper blades: replacement” para-

graph in Section 5).

With the ignition on and the engine off, 

lower the windscreen wiper stalk to 

position E (fast continuous wipe). The 

wiper arms stop in a position away from 

the bonnet.
To return the blades to position, make 

sure they have been placed on the 

windscreen, then move the stalk to po-

sition B (stop) with the ignition on.
Before switching on the ignition, 

place the wipers on the windscreen. 

Otherwise, there may a risk of damage 

to the bonnet or the wipers when they 

are switched on.

1.107

WINDSCREEN WASH, WIPE 

(5/6)

Note:
In temperatures below zero, the washer 

liquid risks freezing to the windscreen, 

thereby reducing visibility. Heat the 

windscreen using the demister control 

before cleaning.

Windscreen washer

With the ignition on, pull stalk 1 then 

release.
A brief pull will trigger a single sweep 

of the wipers, in addition to the wind-

screen washer.
A longer pull will trigger three sweeps 

of the wipers followed, a few seconds 

later, by a fourth, in addition to the wind-

screen washer.

When working in the engine 

compartment, ensure that 

the windscreen wiper stalk 

is in position B (stop).

Risk of injury.

Efficiency of a wiper blade

Check the condition of the wiper 

blades. How long they last depends 

on you:
–  it must remain clean: clean the 

blade and the screen regularly 

with soapy water;

–  do not use it when the screen is 

dry;

–  free it from the screen when it has 

not been used for a long time.

In any event, replace them as soon 

as they begin to lose efficiency: ap-

proximately every year (refer to the 

information on “Wiper blades: re-

placement” in section 5).

Precautions for using the 

wipers

–  In freezing or snowy weather, 

clear the screen before starting 

the wipers (risk of motor over-

heating);

–  ensure that no objects are ob-

structing the travel of the blade.

Do not use the wiper arm to open or 

close the tailgate.

1.110

Activation/deactivation of the rear 

screen wiper
Engaging reverse gear triggers inter-

mittent wiping (if the front wipers are in 

operation). If your vehicle is fitted with 

a vehicle settings customisation menu, 

you can opt to activate or deactivate 

this function. To do this, refer to the in-

formation on the “Vehicle settings cus-

tomisation menu” in Section 1; “Rear 

wiping in reverse gear”.
For vehicles not fitted with a settings 

customisation menu, you can have this 

function deactivated by an authorised 

dealer.

REAR SCREEN WASH, WIPE 

(2/2)

p

Rear screen wash/wipe

With the ignition on, push and 

hold stalk 1, then release.
A longer action will trigger three sweeps 

of the wipers followed, a few seconds 

later, by a fourth, in addition to the wind-

screen washer.

In the event of obstacles present on the 

rear window (dirt, snow, etc.), the wiper 

will try to sweep away all the obstacles. 

If an obstacle prevents the blade from 

moving, it can be stopped. Remove the 

obstacle, wait for around 30 seconds 

and reactivate the wiper using the wiper 

stalk.

Precautions
–  

In the event of ice, check that the 

blades are not stuck to the wind-

screen before operating the wipers. 

If you activate the wiper while the 

blade is blocked by ice, you risk 

damaging both the blade and the 

wiping motor.

–  

Do not operate the wipers on a dry 

screen. This will lead to the prema-

ture wear or damage to the blades.
