Risk of damage to the windshield due to unintentional folding back of the wiper arm.

The wiper blades and wiper motor can freeze at low temperatures.

The graphite coating on the wiper blades can be damaged if they are not cleaned properly.

Caring for wiper blades

Windshield wiper blades in perfect condition are vital for ensuring a clear view.

  • Clean the windshield regularly using a window cleaner (Please see chapter "Cleaning windows" on page 78), especially after washing the vehicle in a car wash.
    Porsche recommends car care products from Porsche Tequipment.
  • Clean the windshield using a sponge or cloth if it is very dirty (e.g. insect remains).

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

  • The wiper blades must engage properly in the wiper arm.
