I've attached the applicable page from my owner's manual regarding "Wiper Service Position Strategy". I understand the purpose of it, but I don't understand how to activate it ("antipanic"?).


Can someone explain how to actually use this feature?


I love the name. I never thought of wiper service as requiring a strategic approach. I guess they can be a little wily sometimes!

I got this. So it works like my old VW. When you turn the car off. Push up on your wipers stalk for a second. The blades will rise. Do it again they go mid windshield, do it once more they go all the way up. When you restart the car they will reset. Viola antistatic meant quick wipe function. Just tested it.

Thanks Jeepetto.


I too have a mk6 Golf R. On that vehicle this feature is necessary because the wiper arms will not clear the hood overhang. I don't see that it's really needed on the Renegade.


I didn't try using the stalk... I was mostly hung-up on the description (or lack thereof) in the manual. It says "antipanic". Is that a typo?


I wonder if my Ross-Tech VDCS can hack our Renegades. There's many hidden features that can be enabled on the VAG systems. I wonder if there will be some code breakers working on the FCA systems.
