It rained on my MK2 172 for the first time yesterday, giving me a chance to try out the rain-sensitive wipers.
What a pain.
They seem to have a mind of their own, switching between intermittent and max speed without much regard to the amount of water on the screen. At one point I was at a set of traffic lights, the rain stopped and the bloody things went from intermittent to flat out for no apparent reason! Must have looked pretty silly.
The sensitivity thingy on the stalk appears to do very little too.
Anyone else had similar fun?
