Hi guys

I'm having the darndest time getting the dealer to enable the "rain sensing wipers" feather on my 2012 TDI. The reasoning they keep giving me is that if they change anything that's set at the factory then it completely voids my warranty.

Side mechanics are afraid to touch it for the same reasons. From the information that I've found online, it's a pretty simple fix...yet no one is willing to do it.

The last person I spoke with today said to look at my sticker amd make sure it's a feather that I paid for. Well I took a look at the original sticker and it says "Adjustable, Intermittent Wipers with heated nozzles". I have the 2008 Passat as well and the feature actually works so I know the vehicle is capable of it.

P.S. I have the TDI SEL Premium...so the vehicle is supposed to have EVERY available feature.

Any recommendations from you guys? If so, please send me a private message here as I don't usually go back to check the forum boards. Thanks a bunch.
