How do I adjust the speed of the windshield wipers?

Depending on how heavy the rainfall is, you’ll want to adjust your windshield wiper speed. Doing so is easy. When you turn on the windshield wipers, they will be at a low speed. Turn the windshield wiper knob farther, and the speed will increase. Continue rotating the knob until the wipers are moving at the right speed for you, and for the weather.
