Replacing windshield wiper and what’s after that?

There are also sensors in windshield wipers, optical or capacitive, to monitor rainfall. So the same as tire sensor and O2 sensor, we need to write the new sensor info into ECU after replacing or repairing windshield wiper, I would like to call it initialization. Mostly is to adjust the initial position.



1. Keep car stay in horizontal

2. Make sure battery level enough, no obstacles on the window

3. Dont use brute force when adjusting the windshield wiper manually, or it would burn the windshield wiper engine.



1. Choose the correct car model, in my case is Ford Kuga 2013

2. Choose the correct system

3. And the tool reminds to do the initialization inside the car

4. Check car status and if the windshield wiper is correctly installed, battery voltage is enough, windshield glass is clean and dry. If meets requirements, turn ignition ON

5. This step is pure manual operation:

1) Swipe down windshield wiper 3 times within 5s but in even pace

2) Swipe up to initial spot, buckling it to A shape

3) Swipe down to standard spot

6. Turn ignition OFF


Done, actually, the most difficult part for initialize windshield wiper is the manual operation, and different cars have different procedures.

Windshield is a safety device. Auto glass, or windshield glass, is sometimes referred to as "safety" glass. When it comes to quality Windshield Replacement, We Buy Windshield is trusted name for the car windshield replacement.
