Special note

Renault Clio. Special note


When driving, the wiping speed slows down whenever the vehicle stops. The speed will change from fast wiping speed 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.

When working in the engine compartment, ensure that the windscreen wiper stalk is in position A (park).

Risk of injury.

Before any action involving the windscreen (washing the vehicle, de-icing, cleaning the windscreen, etc.) return stalk 1 to position A (park).

Risk of injury and/or damage.

In freezing or snowy weather, ensure they are not stuck to the windscreen (including the central area located behind the interior rear-view mirror) and the rear screen before starting the wipers (risk of motor overheating).

Check the condition of the wiper blades. You are responsible for their service life:

  • they must remain clean: clean the blades, windscreen and rear screen regularly with soapy water;
  • do not use them when the windscreen or rear screen are dry;
  • free them from the windscreen or rear screen when they have not been used for a long time.

In all cases, replace them as soon as they begin to lose efficiency: approximately once a year.

Before using the rear wiper, check that no object obstructs the travel of the blade.

Do not use the wiper arm to open or close the tailgate.
