Yes, that's right!

The heater fan speed increases for exactly 20 seconds by one black "notch" after using the front windscreen wash/wipe facility.

It doesn't do it just for the wipers, nor does it do it for the rear was/wipe either.

It's so odd I've been wash/wiping just for fun today and now need to fill the washer bottle!!

The car heater temperatures are both set at 16.5C with the aircon on auto. The external temperature on the MDF was 14C.

Any bright ideas?

Yep! It's the auto-recirc kicking in so that you don't get the hit of your washer-fluid. Should do it when you put it in reverse too so that you don't get the exhaust fumes.

Should be detailed in the handbook

But I like the smell of my windscreen wash especially when I've put extra meths in it!

Thanks - just shows some of us don't read the manual!!
