1.56. Care of appearance of the car


For protection of external furnish of the car against corrosion and damages wash the car carefully and often at least once a month with warm or cold water. Pay attention to elimination of adjournment of salt, a dirt or other extraneous materials. Be convinced of passableness and cleanliness of drain apertures in the bottom edges of doors or panels.

Insects, pitch traces, the bird's dung, industrial wastes or to that similar adjournment can damage external furnish of the car if they are not eliminated immediately.

Even the urgent sink usual water not always can eliminate these adjournment completely. For the varnished surfaces it is possible to use soft soap.

The prevention

Do not use firm soap, chemical means or hot water and do not wash the car on which the direct sunlight or its body hot falls. After a sink carefully rinse the car with warm or cold water.

Do not suppose, that not washed off soap has dried up on an external surface of the car.

After a car sink check up brakes, in particular, at slow driving for definition as water has affected their efficiency.

Wax application

Rub the car with wax only after full removal of water from a varnish surface. Before wax use always wash up and dry up the car. Use only high quality wax in a liquid state or pastes, and adhere to instructions of the manufacturer. Rub with wax also metal parts of the car for their protection against corrosion and shine preservation.

At elimination of oil, pitch and other adjournment by means of means for elimination of stains usually it is in most cases eliminated about surfaces and a wax layer. Therefore after such operation in each case it is necessary to put a new layer of wax in spite of the fact that other part of the car does not require yet it on these places.

Care of the bottom part of a body and the chassis

The materials promoting formation of corrosion, applied to elimination of ice and snow from roads, and also a dust, can be besieged and collect on the bottom part of a body and the car chassis.

If these materials not to eliminate, on the chassis and the bottom part of a body and, mainly, on fuel pipelines, a frame, platforms of a floor and on an exhaust system areas of the accelerated corrosion in spite of the fact that protection against corrosion on them is provided can be formed. Therefore carefully wash the chassis of the car and compartments for wheels with warm or cold water, mainly, by the end of the winter period. Give particular attention to such areas where dirt accumulation are badly visible. The bottom edges of doors, panels and frame parts are supplied by drain apertures which should not be hammered a dirt as water besieged here can cause corrosion. If to wash off a road dirt and not to clear of it an aperture in which she plays a role заглушки it will bring more harm, than advantage.

After a car sink check up brakes at slow driving with the subsequent check, whether water has worsened their efficiency.

Care of aluminium disks of wheels

Do not use abrasive cleaners, polishing pastes, solvents or metal brushes for aluminium disks of wheels. They can scratch or otherwise damage external furnish of wheels.

Apply soft soap or neutral means and rinse with water. Also do not forget to clear a wheel after operation on roads with salt. It helps to prevent corrosion.

Avoid cleaning of wheels by high-speed brushes in sinks of cars.
