Glass, Light & Visibility

Glass, Light & Visibility

No matter what is happening on the road ahead of you, the most important thing is to have a clear view of it and to be able to react quickly. Volkswagen Genuine Glass, Wiper Blades, Lights and Windscreen Clear provide assistance here.     

Volkswagen Genuine Windscreen

Your window on the world. For more comfort and safety.
Your benefits
  • Optimum protection.

Robust safety glass - supports the airbag, splinters less.

  • More comfort.

Protects against noise, shields from the sun and keeps the interior cooler.

  • Matched to your Volkswagen.

Optimum interaction with high-tech functions (e.g. driver assistance systems like rain sensor or Lane Assist).

 

Product information

Volkswagen Genuine Windscreens are more than a protective shield against the elements. They ensure that your interior heats up less in the heat and provide support for your airbags during inflation.

More than just a good view

The functions of your windscreen. It makes your Volkswagen more stable, provides support for your airbag and protects you whenever you drive: Your windscreen is far more than just glass and a protective screen against the elements.

Safe support

The windscreen provides support for airbags during inflation.

Stability

Your windscreen is firmly bonded to the bodywork and hence a load-bearing component. Almost 30% of the bodywork's ability to distort depends on it - and on its condition, of course.

Comprehensive protection

The windscreen protects you against wind, UV radiation and noise. Your interior heats up less in summer.

Clean windscreen. Good visibility

An eye on safety.

Clear: Only if you have a proper view of the road are you also able to react properly. That's why, with your windscreen, clean means safe.

Volkswagen Genuine Aero Wiper Blades

Clear visibility in rain, snow and at high speed.
Your benefits
  • Perfect fit.

Even contact pressure thanks to precision-engineered flex rails which are adjusted to the curvature and size of Volkswagen Windscreens.

  • Clear vision and stability even at high speed.

Thanks to aerodynamic design, integrated spoiler and dual precision-engineered flex rails.

  • Up to 30% less wear and tear.*

Thanks to high-quality materials, a special smooth-running coating and winter-proof design.

*Compared with conventional wipers.

 

Product information

Sometimes, the weather can be volatile, such as heavy rain and dust particles. With Volkswagen Genuine Aero Wiper Blades, you can keep your eyes on the road - thanks to their aerodynamic wireless form even at high speed. And if you occasionally need new wipers despite their especially long service life, don't mull it over for a long time. Replace them with one click.

Heavy work for your safety

To ensure that you are safe on the road, your windscreen wipers cover hundreds of kilometres in a variety of weather conditions, being exposed, among other things, to sun, rain, snow as well as dirt and dust.

714 km

Your wiper blades cover an average of 714 km every 6 months, roughly the distance from Hamburg to Prague.

10 to 15 nanometers

10 to 15 nanometers: the edge of a wiper blade is roughly as wide as a human hair.

20 to 200 nanometers

20 to 200 nanometers is the depth of the film of water on which your wipers float.

Volkswagen Genuine Windscreen Clear

Strong on dirt. Gentle on your Volkswagen.

Volkswagen Original Windscreen Clear gives you a good view of the road and allows you keep an eye on the road and surrounding. The special formulation helps to protect the windscreen and is particularly gentle on sensitive materials.

Tips on clear visibility

In one wipe

When you top up with Windscreen Clear, check your wipers at the same time: Spray water onto the windscreen - not Windscreen Clear. It contains cleaning agents. Switch on the wipers. Do stripes remain?

Pack of three

Your rear windscreen wipers wear out, too. Replace them at the same time as the front wiper blades.

Washing-up liquid vs. Windscreen Clear

Washing-up liquid works well - but only in the kitchen and with hot water. It dissolves grease much better than soot and insects. Moreover, it may make the spray result worse in the long run.

Seal? Better not to

Smears and water droplets (when wiping) will form in the area of the wipers in the long run. These act like lenses and may dazzle you, e.g. if the sun is low or in oncoming traffic.

Volkswagen Genuine Lights

Highlights for optimum visibility.
Your benefits
  • Permanently full power.

With Volkswagen LEDs, light output remains the same until the very end.

  • Last longer.

Particularly long service life.

  • Low energy consumption.

Volkswagen LEDs are long-lasting and consume little.

 

Product information

When the sun goes down far too quickly once again, Volkswagen Genuine Lights will see to enough light at night. Thanks to their particularly high light density, you will have a perfect view of the road - and others of you. Without dazzle effects, with full luminosity over their entire service life.

5 tips on all aspects of your lights

In a pack of two

Our recommendation: Always change lights on both sides at the same time. First, they have roughly the same service life. Second, both will illuminate with the same intensity again.

Hands off

Handle lights only with gloves or a cloth. Even a few fingerprints on the bulb can reduce light output and service life.

Matter for experts

Only if you have the correct basic headlight setting will you be safe on the road and will not dazzle your oncoming traffic. Have the settings preferably checked by Volkswagen service advisors.

Light during the day

If you have your lights on, you are more visible - for example in forest shade or if the sun is low. That is why driving with lights on during the day is compulsory in many countries.

Weight abroad. Lights down

Heavy luggage or many passengers? The rear of your vehicle goes down and the front up, so your dipped headlights may dazzle oncoming traffic. Use the tiny wheel next to the steering column to adjust your headlight setting. Your Owner's manual will contain the correct setting.
