2006 Volvo V50 In areas of high industrial fallout, more frequent washing is recommended. After cleaning the engine, the spark plug wells should be inspected for water and blown dry if necessary. Exterior plastic components Cleaning exterior plastic components should be done with a cleaning agent specially designed for this purpose. Solvents or stain removers should not be used. Consult your Volvo retailer. NOTE: When washing the car, remember to remove dirt from the drain holes in the doors and sills. CAUTION! During high pressure washing, the spray mouthpiece must never be closer to the vehicle than 13" (30 cm). Do not spray into the locks. When washing or steam cleaning the engine, avoid spraying water or steam directly on the electrical components or toward the rear side of the engine. Special moonroof cautions: Always close the moonroof and sun shade before washing your vehicle. Never use abrasive cleaning agents on the moonroof. Never use wax on the rubber seals around the moonroof. Automatic washing - simple and quick We do NOT recommend washing your car in an automatic wash during the first six months (because the paint will not have hardened sufficiently). An automatic wash is a simple and quick way to clean your car, but it is worth remembering that it may not be as thorough as when you yourself go over the car with sponge and water. Keeping the underbody clean is most important, pg. 145 Washing and cleaning the car especially in the winter. Some automatic washers do not have facilities for washing the underbody. CAUTION! Before driving into an automatic carwash, turn off the optional rain sensor to avoid damaging the windshield wipers. Make sure that side view mirrors, auxiliary lamps, etc, are secure, and that any antenna(s) are retracted or removed. Otherwise there is risk of the machine dislodging them. file:///K|/ownersdocs/2006/2006_V50/06v50_09a.htm (2 of 6)12/30/2006 4:49:39 PM
