Please forgive me if this is a stupid question but how do you fold back the wiper blades, for washing the car etc??:confused:

Mine fold back so far, but not all the way so they stay up

Many thanks all;)

You can't.
I've tried a few times myself and have come to the conclusion that you can't, unless you want to take the bonet off!!!!
I just get the wife to hold them until I have finished washing the car!!
Brave man - are you sure she wasn't watching over your shoulder when you typed that?

I just insist that my wife washes the car so I do not have to worry about it!
You can't do it with an S-Type either, grrrrrrrrrrrrr.
If you lift the end of the blade a bit too far to get a cloth/sponge/etc underneath, the whole blade portion may suddenly appear to break off (from experience)!! Luckily in my case the clip-on blade had just become unclipped, so it was easy to restore. Gave me a few moments of concern though.
Glad it wasn't a stupid question after all!
Its not a great design but only really bothers me when allpying Rain-x.
Wiper holding comes at a cost Wilf. I have to wash her car as well!!
Glad it's not just me then.
Blimey, how many of you are washing codfather's wife's car? :)
Can't you put the wipers on, pull the fuse when they reach vertical, would that give clearance for them to be lifted up?
