Need to know how to turn off/on of Legacy 2017 windshield…

Customer Question
Need to know how...

Need to know how to turn off/on of Legacy 2017 windshield wipers. Please advise.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?

It is a brand new car so there is no problem there. I just do not know how to use the on/off mechanism. That's all.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Legacy yourself? What have you tried so far?

I tried playing with the controls on the lever. I managed to get the wipers going but now I do not know how to make them stop. My husband is not available to teach me how. That's all.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No. As embarrassing as it sounds, I do not know how to operate the thing. It does not rain here often in southern CA.
