HOW TO - Dissable Auto Rear Wiper - VCDS Required
« on: 04 December 2010, 20:45 »
Hi all,

This simple post tells you how to code out the auto rear wiper when reverse is engaged.

Please forgive the long post for a simple task but it's so anyone can do it  :wink:

You will need VAG COMM or similar.

1.Open VCDS and selcet Select Control Module. Next Select Cent. Elect.


2. Once open select CODING


3. Once open goto line 3 then goto BYTE 21 on line 3 and and click it - It will turn yellow


4. Look at the options on the lower left and click Bit 6 i.e. UNTICK IT


Then it will look like this, click EXIT and hit DO IT - job done ;-)

Nice one... thanks.
That bloody rear wiper drives me nuts, so I'll be turning it off this weekend when there's some daylight for a few hours!
It looks like I might turn bit2 and bit3 off too - as I'd rather it never went off itself unless I specifically press the stalk!

I just did this to mine. Thanks for the info. :smiley:

Im not sure if i need to untick bit 2 and 3 as im not sure exactly when they do.
Do they meen if you have the front wipers on the back one will go every so often?
As i never noticed it do that but mine are both ticked. Maybe bit 6 has an effect on bit 2 and 3.

Doc hows your rear wiper acting since you did the coding?

Rear wiper acting as normal minus the turning itself on when it's not raining.

I left bits 3 and 4 alone :-)
