Wiper Blades
Maintenance notes
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.
  • Please see the chapter "CARE OF WINDSHIELD WIPER BLADES" on page 206.

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 lifting them from the window.

  • After switching off the ignition, press the wiper stalk down once.
    The wipers move upwards to an angle of approx. 45°.
  • Clean the wiper blades 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 judder 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 wiper blades replaced immediately.
  • Please see the chapter "WASHER FLUID" on page 196.

Replacing wiper blades

  • After switching off the ignition, press the wiper stalk down once.
    The wipers move upwards to an angle of approx. 45°.
  • 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.

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

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

Emission Control System
In the interest of clean air
Pollution of our environment has become a problem that is of increasing concern to all of us. We urge you to join us in our efforts for cleaner air in controlling the pollutants emitted from the automobile.

Porsche has developed an emission control system that controls or reduces those parts of emissions that can be harmful to our environment. Your Porsche is equipped with such a system. Porsche warrants the Emission Control System in your new car under the terms and conditions set forth in the Warranty Booklet.

You, as the owner of the vehicle, have the responsibility to provide regular maintenance service for the vehicle and to keep a record of all maintenance work performed. To facilitate record keeping, have services performed by authorized Porsche dealers. They have Porsche trained technicians and special tools to provide fast and efficient service.

To assure efficient operation of the Emission Control System:

  • Have your vehicle maintained properly and in accordance with the recommendations described in your Maintenance Booklet. Lack of proper maintenance, as well as improper use of the vehicle, will impair the function of the emission control system and could lead to damage.
