Hello either the sensor is not clipped in all the way or the glass is not genuine Mercedes and the rain sensor needs relearned with a scan tool. The glasses have different tints to them and can cause this if not oem Mercedes or if ordered incorrectly . You can check to see if the sensor is clipped in properly if it is then you need to have the dealer code the module and relearn the rain sensor . Hope this helps .
