When driving on the left in a 

left-hand drive vehicle (or vice 

versa), drivers must readjust their 

lights throughout their stay (see 

«Electrical adjustment of the dipped 

beam headlights» in Section 1).

1.86

Automatic main beam 

headlights

Depending on the vehicle, this system 

switches the main beam headlights on 

and off automatically. The function uses 

a camera located behind the interior 

rear-view mirror to detect vehicles that 

are following and coming in the oppo-

site direction.
The main beam headlights come on au-

tomatically if:

–  exterior light is weak;

–  no other vehicles or lighting are de-

tected;

–  the vehicle speed is above approxi-

mately 30 mph (45 km/h).

If any of the above conditions are not 

fulfilled, the system switches to dipped 

beam headlights.

The “automatic main beam 

headlights” system should 

under no circumstances be 

used to replace driver atten-

tion and responsibility with regard 

to vehicle lighting and adapting to 

light, visibility and traffic conditions.

Using the portable naviga-

tion system at night in the 

windscreen area below the 

camera may disturb the 

operation of the “automatic main 

beam headlights” system (risk of re-

flection on the windscreen).

FRONT WINDSCREEN WASH/WIPE (1/6)

Check the condition of the wiper 

blades. You are responsible for their 

service life:
–  they must remain clean: clean 

the blades, windscreen and 

rear screen regularly with soapy 

water;

–  do not use them when the wind-

screen or rear screen are dry;

–  free them from the windscreen or 

rear screen when they have not 

been used for a long time.

In all cases, replace them as soon 

as they begin to lose efficiency: ap-

proximately once a year.
Before using the rear wiper, check 

that no object obstructs the travel of 

the blade.
Do not use the wiper arm to open or 

close the tailgate.

FRONT WINDSCREEN WASH/WIPE (2/6)

  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.

Operating fault
In the event of a malfunction of the 

automatic wiping, the wiper is set to 

intermittent wiping. Contact an au-

thorised dealer.

The operation of the rain sensor can 

be disturbed in the event of:

–  

damaged wiper blades; a screen 

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-repellent chemi-

cals; the automatic wiping will 

be less sensitive, or even unres-

ponsive.

FRONT WINDSCREEN WASH/WIPE (3/6)

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 the prema-

ture wear or damage to the blades.

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 present 

on the windscreen (dirt, snow, ice, 

etc.), clean the windscreen (inclu-

ding the central area located behind 

the interior 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 functio-

ning. Remove the obstacle and 

reactivate the wiper using the wiper 

stalk.

FRONT 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.
It may be useful to:

–  to clean the blades;

–  to release the blades from the winds-

creen in winter;

–  to replace the blades (please refer 

to the information on the “Wiper 

blades” in Section 5).

With the ignition on and the engine off, 

lower the windscreen wiper stalk fully 

(fast continuous wipe position). 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.

1.95

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.
