How to tell if a car has a rain sensor

Many modern cars feature a rain sensor. It is not always easy to tell if the car you need to have a windscreen for has one or not. It may be not working properly so your wipers won’t switch automatically, but it still may be there. Many models that do offer a rain sensor as an option have a different windshield for the rain sensor model and for the model without. The main difference is the rear view mirror- its base can be quite different, so you need to make sure that you are getting the right one.

If unsure, the best way to tell is looking at the base of your rear view mirror- is it simple without any electronics, or is it larger and more sophisticated like in the picture below.

If you are still unsure about your particular model, we recommend to give us a call – 07508250825, we can check that for you if you provide us with your registration number. We won’t charge you for this information and we will also provide a quote if you are interested how much would it cost to change your windscreen and if you have an option to take one without the rain sensor.

A picture of a standard rain sensor can be readily found on Wikipedia:
