air humidity and temperature, the 

external temperature alone is not 

sufficient to detect ice.

Cornering lights function

Whenever the dipped beam headlights 

are on and under certain conditions (at

etc.), when taking a corner one of the 

front fog lights will come on to light the

When driving in fog or snow, or 

when transporting objects which are 

higher than the roof, the headlights 

do not come on automatically.

indicator lights on the instrument 

panel inform you whether the fog 

lights are lit (indicator light on) or not 

(indicator light not on).

Vehicles with automatic wiper 

function

With the engine running, move stalk 1
–  A park.
–  B
 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:

–  E: minimum sensitivity

–  F: maximum sensitivity

NB: in foggy weather or during 

snowfalls, the wiping is not automati-

cally triggered and remains under 

the driver’s control.

–  C normal wiping speed.
–  D
 fast wiping speed.

Special note

When driving, the wiping speed slows 

down whenever the vehicle 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.

With the ignition on, move stalk 1
–  A park.
–  B
 intermittent wiping.

The wipers will pause for several 

seconds between sweeps. It is 

possible to change the time be-

tween sweeps by turning ring 2.

–  C normal wiping speed.
–  D

off, lower windscreen wiper stalk 1 fully 

(position D). The wiper arms stop in a 

position away from the bonnet (please 

refer to the information on “Windscreen 

wiper blades” in Section 5).

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.

Replace wiper blades as soon as 

their performance starts to diminish: 

Approximately every year (refer to 

the information on “Wiper blades” 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.
