Managing your Wipers

When parked, the Macan wiper blades are neatly set down below the bonnet line to reduce drag and in an ideal location - unless you want to clean your windscreen or change a wiper blade.
 
Porsche have given some thought to this problem and have provided a way of making it much easier to work on this area.
 
After switching off the ignition, you simply press the wiper stalk downwards briefly and this will bring the wipers to roughly halfway up the windscreen.
 
A little tip that may be worth remembering.  
 
Regards,

Clive

This is a VAG carry-over feature Clive - my 11-year old Golf GTi has it, so it's been around for quite a while. Very useful though.
 
I'm not sure that it features on the 9x1/718 series cars?

Thanks and very helpful that you tell us all, but how on earth did you find this out yourself?
Why are they so many features that make life easier but are hidden from plain site, or is my eyesight failing me?

David,
It comes from years of hard work, toil, study and dedication ………. and reading page 93 of the handbook!

You could also download the “good to know” Porsche App. It has some good videos and a good search facility.
