Have 2017 Cadenza and the other day was going to clean my windshield and found I was not able to pull my wiper arms up to clean under them because the hood got in the way.
Reading a post from a Facebook group for Cadenza I'm connected with and another owner mentioned that same thing and thought it was a design flaw on Kia's part. Looked at the comments others posted and turns out the wiper arms are designed to fall under the hood line and to service them you have to put the car in "Wiper Service Mode". What!! Seriously. I've got to look into this.
Sure enough, on many Kia's there is a Wiper Service Mode and when enabled it places the wiper arms vertically on windshield so you can then service them and allow them to move away from windshield without hitting the hood. That's so cool.
Found a video demonstrating how to place it in Wiper Service Mode.
In case the video get's removed or fails, here's the directions to enable Wiper Service Mode (at least on the 2017 models):
-Turn on ignition then turn off
-Within 20 seconds lift windshield wiper button up to "Mist" position for 3 seconds (moves wiper arms to a vertical positions and holds them there)
To disable Wiper Service Mode
-Simply turn on ignition and move windshield wiper button up to "Mist" position then let go (moves wiper arms back below the hood line)
