I have selected it on the menu screen but will it work if it's on the off position on the stalk. Also as I have never had auto wipers on a car will they speed up if the rain gets heavier. Sorry for the questions but the wife is out in the car with the book in

Wiper stalk one up and leave it there. Sensitivity is regulated by the switch on top, with the drops. The more to the right you move it the more sensitive. I have mine on the second smallest drop.

Theres a sensor on the windscreen that will detect how heavy the rain is and set your wiper speed accordingly. You can probably trigger the action by spraying water on the windscreen using a spray bottle or garden hose etc.

Another thing to calibrate when the windscreen brakes :) that the AA can't do and only a specialist workshop can at your own expense in addition to the lane keep assist camera :)

I've never been unlucky enough to have had to replace a broken windscreen (fingers crossed) but the rain sensor sits behind the windscreen and projects IR that is reflected back when there is no rain on the glass. The more rain on the glass the more the IR is scattered so less gets reflected back into the detector which speeds up the wiper arms. Hopefully the windscreen can be replaced if needed without affecting the detector although admittedly I've not looked at it that closely! Would be a bastard if a trip to the garage was required to recalbrate!
