No, this isn't another complaint about the lack of a rear wiper. This is about the front wipers.

Maybe this is common on other cars, but I never have had a car where you couldn't just pull the wiper arm up in order to change the wipers. They retract far enough under the hood so that they can't swing up.

Probably nobody in the US has actually needed to change them yet.

For those of you who didn't find the correct page in the 600 page manual, here's how you change out the wipers:

The important part is you have to start with the car on, turn the car off, and then push the wiper control stalk up within 20 seconds, and hold it in the up position.

The rest is fairly standard,

We really need a cheat sheet of the "XBox cheat codes" for this car. This isn't the only one.

Might be a Kia thing - our Telluride has this as well.

The Telluride does this as well and I have to utilize it when I park and it's snow/freezing rain otherwise you need to chip the wipers out or wait until they defrost before you can use the wiper.

It depends on the design of the car. Some cars have the wipers hidden beneath the cowl. When so designed, there’s a “winter mode” or “service mode” that lift the resting position higher up.
