Just seen this today - thanks to @JonnyG On the pre facelift you have to enter the following coding - might not be needed on newer cars Front wiper stops in Service Mode when opening the bonnet With this mod, each time you open the hood, the clean ones will be placed in service mode. Very useful to wash the moon or change the clean. In normal position when opening them they give in the bonnet. 1 - Module 09 - Electronic control unit. Code (31347) 2 - Adaptation 3 - Select - Windshield wipers 4 - Sub-menu - Wischer abparken bei oeffnen der motorhaube 5 - Change value to On I did this and nothing happend (bad or good) but just seen a note about this and in order to use this function 1/ turn the ignition on, 2/ turn it off again 3/ press the wiper stalk down within around 5 seconds. Wipers are now parked in the upright position.
