In late 2006 my passion for Porsche that had been kindled by owning a boxster lead me to search for a 911. In February 2007 I found a lovely, well used 964 carrera 2 coupe in GP white and embarked on a new adventure. This running report is about my 964 that would be used for high days, holidays and track days and be a 'project car'. It wouldn't matter if it spent time waiting for things to be fixed as it wouldn't be used as a daily driver.

New windscreen wiper arms (Jul 10)

With all the exciting stuff finished it was time to attend to a few mundane jobs.

First up was to change the 964's almost useless wiper arms....I think they're designed to slow you down to 30 mph when it's raining because you can't see!

At the end of the model line Porsche replaced the weedy single sprint wiper arms with more beefy double spring versions. Here's one old and one new fitted:



Pic showing the two springs on the new one and single spring on the old one:



They look a bit more meaty now and should do a better job clearing the water away



The pictures above show that I initially fitted Bosch wiper blades. These turned out to be very poor so I changed them to Porsche original. The latter are much more delicate and for that reason fit and clear the screen better.

If the weather is cool, bring the vehicle into the garage.
It may be helpful to apply for using a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the adhesive.for more please see our site

The first and most important things that,Windscreen ensures the safety of the person who is driving the car.
It protects the driver from the risk when he is driving. It also provides the car an additional structural strength.
When you leave the Windscreen of your car in a bad condition, you're also compromising your own safety,
and more so if you're someone who is always driving.more details,
