That's a typical VW thing, it's not specific to this model. You have to put them in Service Mode to fully raise the arm.Damn wiper arms scrape against hood removing paint in the process while trying to lift them up to clean windshield.
Anyone else have an unsettled feeling thinking our cars were rushed into production, or are VW engineers just clueless???
I didn't actually harm the paint, but surely could have, but yeah I'm not a wreckless lunatic, lol.While it’s annoying to have a service mode, VW isn’t the only car company to have this. It helps aerodynamics when wipers are off.
But I question owners so careless to scratch up their car lifting the blades without noticing what was happening. I mean, if you are careful you can gently lift them to clean under them and not scratch your car. I’ve done it many times on many VW models.
