To move the steering wheel and extra 1/2in to 1inch in any directions....click the button 8 times in the direction you want it to move it
umm..... anyone verify this? i was in the car for 10 mins doing all kind of combo and i couldn't move the wheel towards myself anymore than what it's already at?

11) There are two 'stops' for windshield wipers on the 2nd gen GS, a winter / ice setting and a regular lower setting. If your wipers on on the winter setting they sit way up high on the window and don't tuck behind the cowl. Just push them down hard and they'll 'pop' past the winter stop into the normal one. Looks much better.
Wow! That made a huge difference. Not just does it look MUCH better from the outside, but it also feels like my windshield is a lot bigger now from the inside looking out.

I just had my windshield replaced (twice in one week actually) and when they replaced the wipers, they sit below the cowl, but now the drivers side does not wipe to the edge of the windshield like I think it should. Is it supposed to be like that in the summer position?

Mine goes to the same point that it did in winter mode (dirty windshield, easy to check). It goes to about 2" from the a pillar, or to where the wiper arm is completely upright.

I guess I have a problem then. Because mine will NOT go to almost completely upright anymore.

I still can't figure out how to get my filter out. Is it behind the CD changer or beneath it?

Its simple open your glove compartment and right beneath the cd changer is a black piece that u snap out, then once u do that u will see a hidden door up inside the compartment even further pop that out and pull out the filter....Do it during the day so that u can see....
