It is particularly important to wash the vehicle frequently in the wintertime to prevent corrosion, when salt has been used on the roads. When washing the vehicle, do not expose it to direct sunlight. Use lukewarm water to soften the dirt before you wash with a sponge, and plenty of water, to avoid scratching. Bird droppings: Remove from paintwork as soon as possible. Otherwise the finish may be permanently damaged. A detergent can be used to facilitate the softening of dirt and oil. A water-soluble grease solvent may be used in cases of sticky dirt. However, use a wash place equipped with a drainage separator. Dry the vehicle with a clean chamois and remember to clean the drain holes in the doors and rocker panels. Tar spots can be removed with kerosene or tar remover after the vehicle has been washed. A stiff-bristle brush and lukewarm soapy water can be used to clean the wiper blades. Frequent cleaning improves visibility considerably. Wash off the dirt from the underside (wheel housings, fenders, etc.). In areas of high industrial fallout, more frequent washing is recommended. file:///K|/ownersdocs/2007/2007_V70/07v70_08.htm (1 of 7)12/30/2006 5:49:42 PM
