    I want to know about the activation of wipers during rain with auto wiper feature. In my linea i had to start it manually first,it works in auto afterwards. I think it is supposed to start automatically when it rains. Other linea owners, can you please tell how this feature is working in your cars?

    Why one need to engage manually, if it is auto wiper?
    @Ranjeet, what your manual says?

    You will have to engage it manually first, then only it will work . It will vary its speed as per the rain intensity

    Sorry for going OT, can this auto wiper set up be done for the Punto too?

    I doubt, because first of all a new windscreen with sensors on it will be required then only the complexity of combination stalk will arise.

    In addition to the above, you will also need a new BCM.

    @Ravi.... got it in the manual. looks like i missed it earlier. everytime we switch on ignition, we need to activate the sensor by changing wiper control position from intermittent to any other & then put it back on intermittent position. Thanks for making me refer manual again.
