Kia Niro: Windshield Wiper/Washer / Rain Sensor Repair procedures

Removal
  

The dust or foreign substance on the rain sensor has a bad effect upon the rain sensor capability, so protect the sensor surface with protection cover until installing the rain sensor to bracket for accurate funtion.

As the coupling pad on the rain sensor surface has adhesive strength, it may stick to the windshield based on environmental condition.

Carefully separate the rain sensor from the windshield as it may be damaged if separated by force.

1.

Reomve the mirror wiring cover (A).

2.

Disconnect the rain sensor connector (A).

3.

Be careful not to damage the cover latch by applying excessive force. To remove the latch, pull aside the latch using the cover hole with a small flat-blade screwdriver (A).

4.

Rain sensor module is attached to the front windshield by glue. To replace the front windshield, remove the rain sensor module from the existing front windshield and install on the new front windshield.

Installation
  

For windshield with reflection layer that reflects infrared rays in sensing field, install the rain sensor in the field with the reflection layer removed.

Install the rain sensor after some time and avoid settling of dust after installation.

1.

Install the rain sensor bracket to the windshield glass using the tape.

  

It is very important that the coupling pad is pressing against the windshield completely without bubbles for full adherence.

2.

Connect the rain sensor connector, and then install the sensor cover.
