Someone recommended this last year and it got a bottle. It doesn't work on the windows. The problem is the have a sort of brush like finish which accumulates water which then freezes. The Gummi pflege doesn't seem to stop this.
Try a drop of silicone spray on the felt seals.

Silicone spray into a rag and wipe the brushes (do the same on my house front door weather strips too😊)

Don't you end up getting the silicon on the glass? That is then almost impossible to get off.

Only on the very edges, where it’s not really visible anyway.

Hi Ian. I am not sure gummi pflege is designed to do the windows unless the windows are on the rubber which the Macan is amongst many others.
It does work with 911 and Audi A5 that have frameless windows where the window freezes to the rubber not allowing the window to drop to open the door.

I will try and change the heading to reflect frameless windows.
GTS 😀
