I have a 2006 Boxster S

Driving home in the rain yesterday, I noticed a sound from the wipers. When I looked, it seems one of the wipers, where it comes through the cowling, rubs against the plastic , making the plastic cowling move back and forth. Has anyone experienced this before?

If the wiper shaft is rubbing against any part of the circumference of the hole where it comes through the black plastic cowl, either the cowl became distorted or it has somehow gotten dislodged from its normal position.

Double check that the screws under the small, round black plastic trim discs at the right and left sides below the base of the windshield are not loose or missing.

Regards, Maurice.

Thanks, Maurice.

I had a good look at it, and indeed there is a screw in the center of the cowl that was loose. Tightening that screw did not correct it, though, because the hidden wiper assembly was still somehow rubbing against the cowl from the inside. . I had to loosen the two bolts at the far left and far right of the cowl, spent about an hour trying to center it all, and I think I finally got it so that the wiper assembly no longer hits the plastic cover.
