Windshield wipers

The windshield wash/wipe system is controlled by the GEM.

The front wiper blades are flat blades. These offer the following advantages over conventional wiper blades:

  • reduced noise when operating
  • improved wiping because of the reduced tendency to lift up at high vehicle speeds
  • lower installed height
