How do I set the intermittent wipers?

The intermittent wipers allow you to select how frequently the wipers wipe. To set the intermittent wipers, follow these steps: 1. Locate the wiper lever, which protrudes from the right side of the steering column. 2. Push the lever down one notch, to the Intermittent setting. 3. Rotate the intermittent band (which is on the wiper lever) to adjust the speed. Rotating the band towards the front of the car will increase the frequency of the wipers, while rotating it towards you will decrease the frequency.
