This position permits release of the windscreen wiper blades.

  • Any action on the wiper stalk in the minute after switching off the ignition places the blades vertically on the screen.
  • To park the blades again, switch on the ignition and operate the wiper stalk.

To maintain the effectiveness of the "flat-blade" type of wiper blades, it is advisable to:

- handle them with care,
- clean them regularly using soapy water,
- avoid using them to retain cardboard on the windscreen,
- replace them at the first signs of wear.
