Wiper Noise

Post by j5kol » Mon Apr 16, 2018 9:39 am

Has anyone encountered their drivers wiper hitting the A pillar seal when on full deflection ? I have contacted the OPC and booked it in as they believe their was a service bulletin about this and it will require some parts.

Haven't come across that one, and I don't recall any posts on here about it. How old is your car? Is there any play in the wiper mechanism? If so it would seem something in the wiper motor or linkage has broken or come adrift.

This was an issue for some early (‘14 and ‘15) forum members.
Service action exists (couldn’t tell you what the solution is😳) so the dealership should sort with no problems.

The Macan test/courtesy car we drove prior to buying our Macan did that. Am sure it is a fairly simple fix of adjusting the wiper arm.
