because i didnt have the answer so i provided the information that was most applicable to what he was doing. with that kind of question it seemed that he was asking because he was seeking to replace his windshield, probably from a junk yard. By letting him know that you can get new glass relatively inexpensively i believed it made his question, to a point, moot.

Due to part number supercessions, there are only two OEM Volvo windshields for the S60: with and without the rain sensor.<p>John Sharisky<p>

An infra red beam is emitted by the sensor and in comparing the intensity of the reflected beam to the transmitted beam it can determine if there is water on the windscreen. If water is detected within its field of view, it will then set what it determines to be the correct speed for the windshield wipers regardless if there is dirt on other portions of the windscreen.<p>*Note: If the windscreen becomes dirty (i.e. due to road salt) the customer must manually activate the windscreen washer system, as the rain sensor does not.<p>*Note: If water droplets are not within the field of view, the windscreen wipers will not activate.<br>Dirt, scratches, or other items in the field of view may affect how the sensor interprets the glass<br>surface."<p><IMG SRC="http://pictures.dealer.com/bostonvolvo/26634d684046385c01c6ca49f536f361.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Hope this helps!<p>John<p>
