Ok. So J11, 2015 Nissan Qashqai DIG-t n-tec 1.2l petrol car with rain sensing wipers. The manual is pretty much useless in clearly explaining how to operate the wipers in auto mode. The attached image is my car's wiper stick. I think I know how the front wipers operate in rain sensing mode. 

Question: In the Do the rear wipers too operate in rain sensing mode or do they operate only when employed manually?

Hi makemywish,

I'm afraid that I'm not at all sure about the J11 set-up, because I have the older J10. However, it would expect it to be quite similar. To get a single wipe, I press the wiper lever up once, from which it springs back automatically. To engage auto mode I press it down 1 click. The pause between wipes is controlled by rotating the bezel on the stalk, with the shorter bars giving a shorter pause between wipes, although I have to say that it often seems to do it's own thing anyway, including going into hyper mode quite without cause.
As someone else has said, the opersation of the rear wiper is manual, except for when I engage reverse gear whilst the front wipers are operating. It then gives a single wipe.

Hope this helps.

You'll see that the J11 rear wiper has no "Auto" option in its positions, so you can have it off, intermittent or on. The front ones do have an "Auto" position, as well as off, and two speeds of constant wipe, and work just as both Devondave and the manual describe.
