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 deposits of salt, dirt or other extraneous materials. Be convinced of passableness and purity of drain openings in the bottom edges of doors or panels.

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

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


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 allow, that not washed away soap dried up on an external surface of the car.

After a wash of the car check brakes, in particular, at slow driving for definition as water affected their efficiency.

Wax application

Rub the car with wax only after complete removal of water from a varnish surface. Before wax use always wash up and dry up the car. Use only wax of high quality 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 deposits by means of means for elimination of spots 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 need yet it on these places.

Care of the lower part of a body and chassis

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

If these materials not to eliminate, on the chassis and the lower 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 accumulation of dirt are badly visible. The bottom edges of doors, panels and parts of a frame are supplied with drain openings which should not be hammered by dirt as the water which was besieged here can cause corrosion. If to wash away road dirt and not to clear of it an opening which she plays a cap role, it will bring more harm, than advantage.

After a wash of the car check brakes at slow driving with the subsequent check, whether water worsened their efficiency.

Care of aluminum disks of wheels

Aluminum disks of wheels are covered with a transparent protective layer.

Do not use abrasive cleaners, polishing pastes, solvents or metal brushes for aluminum disks of wheels. They can scratch or 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 car washes.
