Information

  • Periodically clean the wiper blades with a window cleaner, especially after the vehicle has been washed in a car wash. We recommend Porsche window cleaner. If they are very dirty (e.g. with insect remains), they can be cleaned with a sponge or cloth.

If the wiper blades rub or squeak, this may be as a result of the following:
If the vehicle is washed in an automatic car wash, wax residues may be adhering to the windshield.
These wax residues can only be removed by using a window cleaner concentrate.

  • Please see the chapter "WASHER FLUID" on page 191.
  • Please contact your authorized Porsche dealer for further information.

The wiper blades may be damaged or worn.

  • Replace wiper blades as soon as possible.
