My windshield wipers won’t wipe up all the water

I can’t find out why my windshield wipers won’t totally work! I have just replaced my old ones with some rainX wipers, and for some reason they will not wipe some water away from the middle of my windshield? It’s right on the middle of the wipers, and I have tried tightening my wiper control arms to get them to maybe press more against the window but that hasn’t worked either. PLEASE HELP!!

Not all wiper blades work correctly on the 944 due to the shape of the glass and the angle it is installed at. If your windshield has been replaced at some point then it may not have been installed at the correct pitch which would also cause this. Porsche changed the design of the wiper arms around 88 or 89 they added a extra tension spring to try and help with this.

I would start with trying to install a different set of wipers. I would stay away from the all weather blades that are wrapped in rubber all the way around they are known not to work very well on these cars.

Try a claybar (from a cleaning kit made for getting unseen or unknown deposit of film off. Especially if you drive over high bridges alot).

It will remove the invisible particles on the glass just as it would give you a clean surface to polish and wax on the body panels.
