First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The factory-fitted windscreen wiper blades are coated with graphite. The graphite coating ensures that windscreen wiper blade moves quietly over the windscreen. If the graphite coating is damaged, the windscreen wiper will become louder.

Regularly check the condition of the wiper blades. Rubbing wiper blades should be changed if damaged or cleaned if dirty  .

Damaged wiper blades should be replaced immediately. Windscreen wiper blades can be bought from a qualified workshop.
