rain sensor windshield

Recommended Posts

I have a 99 C4 that needs a new windshield. I don't have a rain sensor currently, can I put in the windshield with the built in rain sensor and will it work fine and how much of a mod is it if any?

It is pretty easy and gets installed after the windshield. It basically sticks to the windshield (similar to the mirror). 996 612 981 00 - Retail price is $306.25 but I think I've seen the upgrade kit advertised for about $180. Try Sunset Imports (Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost) at the top of the page. The install TSB (9212) is in the TSB section.

When my body shop guy went to order the windshield why did they ask if I have the rain sensor option? Does the sensor come built in to the windshield?

No, it does not come "built-in" but if your windshield had one before then they would put a new one in. Once they are attached I don't think they come off.

Loren then why does Porsche offer two type of windshields, one with a rain sensor and one without? Since I have to put in a new windshield  should get the rain sensor one?

If you are replacing a windshield then you can get it preinstalled. A rain sensor can be put on any windshield.
