2007 Volvo V70 An automatic wash is a simple and quick way to clean your vehicle, but it is worth remembering that it may not be as thorough as when you yourself go over the vehicle with sponge and water. Keeping the underbody clean is most important, especially in the winter. Some automatic washers do not have facilities for washing the underbody. Before driving into an automatic car wash, 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. Exterior lighting Condensation may form temporarily on the inside of the lenses of exterior lights such as headlights, fog lights, or tail lights. This is normal and the lights are designed to withstand moisture. Normally, condensation will dissipate after the lights have been on for a short time. Polishing and waxing Normally, polishing is not required during the first year after delivery, however, waxing may be beneficial. Before applying polish or wax the vehicle must be washed and dried. Tar spots can be removed with kerosene or tar remover. Difficult spots may require a fine rubbing compound. After polishing use liquid or paste wax. Several commercially available products contain both polish and wax. Waxing alone does not substitute for polishing a dull surface. A wide range of polymer-based waxes can be purchased today. These waxes are easy to use and produce a long-lasting, high-gloss finish that protects the bodywork against oxidation, road dirt and fading. Do not polish or wax your vehicle in direct sunlight (the surface of the vehicle should not be warmer than 113° F (45° C). CAUTION! Volvo does not recommend the use of long-life or durable paint protection coatings, some of which may claim to prevent pitting, fading, oxidation, etc. These coatings have not been tested by Volvo for compatibility with your vehicle's clear coat. Some of them may cause the clear coat to soften, crack, or cloud. Damage caused by application of paint protection coatings may not be covered under your vehicle's paint warranty. Side windows with the water repellent glass coating-option Do not apply wax, degreasing agents, etc to this glass. This could damage the coating. Clean the glass surface with care to avoid scratching. Use only suitable plastic scrapers to remove ice or snow from the windows. NOTE: The water repellent coating is subject to natural wear. file:///K|/ownersdocs/2007/2007_V70/07v70_08.htm (3 of 7)12/30/2006 5:49:42 PM
