Hi All -

Anyone had this problem? I had the windshield replaced last week on an 18 GT with rain sensing blades. For the first few days, everything was great. Now, whenever I turn the car on. the blades do a swipe across the glass. There hasn't been much rain here, but the one little drizzle since replacement, the sensor seemed to work properly. Wondering if anyone has had this and success stopping the initial swipe??

Try wiping the sensor area before starting the car.

Has that stopped it?

Then it was light dew on the sensor.

I've read somewhere that the sensor should be re calibrated after screen replacement. Presumably that has not been done, or not been done correctly.

Thanks all -

I took it back in today after cleaning the glass around the sensor. Apparently, the housing has a snap-in on each side and one side wasn't snapped in all the way!
