GENERAL INFORMATION

BODY

The condition in which there is a body of your car, is very important, because its cost depends on it in big degree at resale. It is much more difficult to repair the started or damaged body, than mechanical parts. The hidden cavities of a body, such as niches of wheels, a frame and a motor compartment, are also important not less in spite of the fact that they do not demand frequent attention, as other parts of a body.

Once a year, or each 20 000 km, the body bottom by means of steam is very useful to clear. All traces of dirt and oil will be removed, and after this area it will be possible to check on existence of the rust, the damaged brake highways, the worn-out electric wires, the damaged ropes and so on. At the end of this work it is necessary to grease components of a forward suspension bracket.

At the same time it is necessary to clear the engine and a motor compartment by means of a paroochistitel or the adaptation for greasing removal.

The special attention is necessary for turning on niches of wheels as the substrate can exfoliate, both stones and the dirt, thrown out by wheels, can damage paint and allow to appear to a rust. If you found a rust, smooth out the damaged surface to the metal and put on it anticorrosive paint.

It is necessary to wash a body, at least, once a week. Carefully wet the car to soften dirt, and then wash away it by means of a soft sponge and a large amount of soap water. If carefully not to wash away dirt, it can erase paint.

Spots of tar or bitumen are necessary for clearing by means of a fabric moistened in solvent.

At least, each six months polish a body and the chromeplated details. If you use a cleaner for the chromeplated parts to remove a rust from details with an electrodeposit, remember that the cleaner also deletes honor of chrome so use it carefully.

VINYL FURNISH

Never clear vinyl furnish by detergents, kaustichesky soap or cleaners on the basis of kerosene. Simple soap and water work simply perfectly, and a soft brush it is possible to remove inveterate dirt easily. Wash vinyl furnish as it is frequent, as well as all car.

After cleaning application of high-quality protective equipment for rubber and vinyl surfaces will help to avoid oxidation and emergence of cracks. The protective tool can also is put on a sealant of glasses, vacuum highways and rubber hoses which often fail as a result of chemical destruction, and also on tires.

UPHOLSTERY AND RUGS

Each three months it is necessary to remove rugs and to clear the car inside (if it is necessary, do it more often). The vacuum cleaner clear an upholstery and rugs to remove the remained dirt and a dust.

The leather upholstery demands special attention. It is necessary to delete spots with warm water and very soft soap solution. Use pure rags to remove soap, and then again wipe an upholstery a dry rag. Never use alcohol, gasoline, liquid for removal of a varnish or a thinner for cleaning of a leather upholstery.

After cleaning regularly process a leather upholstery special wax. Never use automobile wax for polishing of a leather upholstery.

Where the interior of the car is treated to action of sunshine, close leather seats sheets if the car is left on the sun during any time.
