This invention relates to a windshield wiping system and method which utilizes a rain sensor having a housing defining a first mounting area for mounting directly onto a mirror mount which is adhered to a windshield. The rain sensor housing also defines a second mounting area that defines a generally trapezoidally-shaped mount for receiving a mirror bracket in order to support a mirror. The rain sensor housing is an integral one-piece construction that automatically registers at least one sensor in operative relationship with the windshield and in a predetermined position and orientation relative to the windshield when the rain sensor is mounted on the mirror bracket.
