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

Check the condition of the wiper blades on a regular basis. 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.
