How to stop rear Wiper activated by reverse gear

Post by Phoenix21 » Mon Jul 22, 2019 6:19 pm

Hi All

As you all know (unless my Q2 is unique), the rear wiper is activated when reverse gear is engaged. This is fine if it's raining but when it's a dry day this can be a real pain with the wiper scraping away the rear windscreen. I have looked into the menus and there doesn't seem to be any option to disable it. I wonder if anyone has found a way.

Thanks...

Haven’t noticed mine doing it. I’ll have to pay more attention 🤣

It only activates if the front wipers are activated, if it's otherwise in your car get it inspected by audi

Mine doesn't do that.. It wiped auto the other day when driving but it was raining 😀 tbh had no idea the rear wiper was auto.

The rear wiper is NOT auto. Like Aidam11 says, it only activates when the front wipers are ON or in auto mode (rain sensors). If front wipers are OFF, the rear one shouldn't activate.

My Audi never came with the rear wiper blade so has scratched the rear window 😬 gotta book it in to get a new one as soon as possible
