F30/F31 Lift the wiper arms - video

This is a nice video to show how to set the wiper in vertical position:
(In case you don't understand Thai, you may mute the volume)

I scratched the inside of my hood when I first got the car. "RTFM" really doesn't apply to this. Dealer should tell u when you pick it up. My prior two cars were a 2009 e90 and a 2001 A4, and my wife had a 2010 and now 2013 Outback, none of which require any prep to get wipers up. While some modern cars may, I'm sure the vast majority of cars don't. I'm a bright guy and would never have thought to look in manual to lift the freakin wiper blades.

Well I've learnt something! I've never owned a car before with this "feature". I did wonder why it was so hard to clean the windscreen when I was washing the car, at least now I know. Thanks Serpent, couldn't understand a word but at least the pictures were good

Thanks guys.

Totally agree that this procedure is unusaul. But BMW have this wiper design in both F30 and F10 series too. Same kind of questions were raised in the F10 forum.

At least we know how to do it now.
Cheers,
Serpent
