Changing the wiper blades

Windscreen wiper blades

CAUTIONS:
Set the windscreen wipers in the service position to change the wiper blades.

You can use the service position in winter to provide easier access to the wiper blades for freeing them from snow and ice. The windscreen wipers will return to their normal position as soon as you switch on the ignition so make sure that you fully defrost the windscreen before you switch on the ignition.
