Windscreen replacement

Hi all . Was hoping if you have heard of this to reply back
Have had a new vw windscreen fitted to my golf gtd .
The car has auto rain sensing wipers.
I have been told off two vw main car dealers that if ever i get a new screen fitted the rain sensor needs to be recalubrated for the new windscreen.
The cost is around 350 and will take two hours labour!!

Any one heard of this ?

How can you test the sensor and can you calibrate it yourself?

Surely if i just put the wipers on position one and adjust the sensitivity using the lever on the stalk , spray water on the screen area where the sensor is that it?

The dealers are saying its linked to the front radar sensor and is speed sensitive as well .

Any ideas , as doesnt seem correct to me..

the dealer has got it wrong , cars only with lane assist and rain sensor on the screen need to be calibrated , if the car does not have lane assist it does not need calibrating . this comes from vw in germany after i rang vw .
the dealer has got wrong information or wants to make a quick few hundred quid for nothing ......

handy for others to know
