View Full Version : Wipers in service position with ignition off TRICK

29-12-2016, 11:05 PM
Found this on US Q7 4M forum - works on my A6 4G so should work on A7

After the car is turned off hold down the wiper stalk in the X1 position , and wipers will go into service position - have checked and it works , my A6 is MY 2012 ....

this isnt mentioned in the service manual , so thought I would post

I just grab one of the wipers and move them up, seems to be sort of disconnected when power of.
Done this a dozen times at no harm

My MMI software is k0900 , not sure if this makes a differance , and tried the "trick" a few seconds after turning ignition off.

Hope this helps
