1. A wiping device configured to move along a wiping direction (28), the wiping device comprising a retaining unit (10a-10e) which has a retaining element (12a-12e) with both a longitudinal guide channel (14a-14e) extending along a longitudinal direction for guiding a spring element (16a-16e), and guide elements (62a-62e, 62b-62e) for guiding a wiper lip (40a-40e), the wiping device also comprising a spoiler unit (22a-22e), characterized in that the retaining element (12a-12e) has at least one L-shaped fastening means (18a-18e, 20a-20e) having a free end (24a-24e, 26a-26e) that points toward the longitudinal guide channel (14a-14e) and forms an interlocking connection with the spoiler unit (22a-22e), wherein the at least one fastening means (18a-18e, 20a-20e) extends at an obtuse angle from at least one side wall (52a-52e, 54a-54e) of the retaining element (12a-12e), and wherein the longitudinal guide channel (14a-14e) is spatially positioned between the guide elements (62a-62e, 62b-62e) and the at least one fastening means (18a-18e, 20a-20e) along a direction of a vertical axis that is perpendicular to both the wiping direction (28) and the longitudinal direction, wherein the at least one side wall extends vertically along a direction parallel to the vertical axis, wherein the at least one L-shaped fastening means includes a first portion that extends directly from an upper end of the side wall (52a-52e, 54a-54e), and a second portion that extends substantially perpendicularly from the first portion and points toward the longitudinal guide channel, wherein an overall width of the retaining unit in the wiping direction is greater than an overall width of the spoiler unit in the wiping direction.
