There are several posts on the forum about problems with the auto wipers, the cause seems to be a faulty wiper motor, approx £300 to fix.
I had new wiper blades fitted the other day and the problem is now worse.
Ie, fine drizzle on Thursday - auto setting at the minimum setting. Wipers going continuously at double speed for about 10 wipes. Then similar at normal speed. Then they switched to intermittent, but I had to turn up the sensitivity as they weren't wiping often enough. Then they went back to continuous double speed. They then park about 4 inches up the screen. The motor is also starting to get noisy as well. Not impressed, I no longer have a usable intermittent wipe.
Perhaps we need a survey to find out how many cars have these problems.
