Risk of damage to the alternator.
Effective rust-proofing is particularly important during the cold weather season. If the vehicle is driven frequently in areas where salt has been spread on the roads, the engine compartment should be cleaned thoroughly and subsequently sealed after the cold weather season to prevent salt from causing any lasting damage.
The road dust which settles on the windshield and windows contains particles of tire rubber and oil residue. The interior trim and upholstery release particles, particularly in strong sunlight, which collect on the insides of the windows. These deposits are augmented by impurities in the air which enters the car through the fresh air vents.
Door windows feature a water-repellent (hydrophobic) coating which prevents soiling of the windows.
This coating is subject to natural wear and can be renewed.
Wiper blades that are in perfect condition are vital for a clear view.

As it is not possible to exclude the risk of damage to this protective coating in day to day driving, it is advisable to have the underside of the car inspected at certain intervals – preferably before the start of winter and again in spring – and the undercoating restored as necessary.
Your authorized Porsche dealer is familiar with the bodyseal treatment procedures and has the necessary equipment for applying factory approved materials. We recommend that you entrust them with such work and inspections.
Unlike conventional spray oils, undercoating and rust-proofing compounds based on bitumen or wax do not attack the sound-proofing materials applied at the factory.
