Guys and gals

Have auto wipers on my bus (T5) and had to get the windscreen replaced due to a crack over christmas. Ever since then, not sure if the wipers are working as they should (though not had chance to test extensively). With the wiper stalk up one notch and with the sensitivity set at its lowest, the wipers were flicking at regular intervals even though it was only misty outside and the windscreen wasn't really wet.

I stipulated that i had auto wipers when I contacted the AA and they said no probs. Could they have mucked something up somehow (left something disconnected or misaligned?), or is there a definitive check to prove one way or t'other?

Thanks

Mark

Just had my auto wipers checked out when van was in for service and they reckon they're not working. £300 to replace.... I reckon I can live without them, though interested to know how they work. They seem to suggest that some of the windscreen adhesive may have contaminated the sensor. Any one know how the wipers sense? Is it an optical thing?

Any ideas

Cheers
Mark
