Changing Air Cleaner
Regular replacement of the filter element is part of servicing.

  • In dusty conditions, clean the filter element more frequently and replace it if necessary.

Further important information concerning "maintenance" can be found on a separate chapter.

  • Please see the chapter "EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN WORKING ON YOUR VEHICLE" on page 256.

Changing Particle Filter
Regular replacement of the filter is part of servicing.

A dirty filter can be the cause of reduced air throughput, e.g. the windows can mist up.

  • Have the filter replaced by your authorized Porsche dealer.

The particle filter ensures that the fresh air entering the passenger compartment is virtually free of dust and pollen.

  • If the outside air is polluted by exhaust fumes, press the recirculated-air button.

Wiper Blades

Risk of damage if wiper blades are not cleaned correctly.

The graphite coating on the wiper blades may be damaged.

  • Do not clean wiper blades with a cloth or sponge, but rinse with clean water only.

Risk of damage when working on the wiper arm. The windshield, wiper arm and blades can be damaged if the wiper arm accidentally falls back onto the windshield.

Wiper blades that are frozen in place can be damaged if they are loosened improperly.

  • Always hold the wiper arm securely when replacing the wiper blade.
  • Thaw the wiper blades before loosening them.

Wiper blades that are in perfect condition are vital for a clear view.

  • Have the wiper blades replaced twice per year (before and after the cold season) or if wiper performance deteriorates or the blades are damaged.
  • Clean the windshield with window cleaner at regular intervals, especially after washing the vehicle in a car wash.
    We recommend Porsche window cleaner. If the wiper blades are very dirty (e.g. soiled with insect remains), they can be cleaned with a sponge or cloth.

If the wiper blades rub or squeak, this may be due to the following:

  1. If the vehicle is washed in an automatic car wash, wax residues may adhere to the windshield. These wax residues can be removed only by using window cleaner concentrate.
  2. The wiper blades may be damaged or worn.
  • Have damaged or worn wiper blades replaced immediately.
  • Please see the chapter "WASHER FLUID" on page 262.

Replacing wiper blades

Risk of damage. If the wiper blades are not changed properly, they can come loose when the car is moving.

  • Check whether the wiper blades are seated securely.
    The wiper blades must engage properly in the wiper arm.

  • Please read the separate instructions provided by the wiper blade manufacturer.
  • We recommend that you get your authorized Porsche dealer to replace the wiper blades.
