Winter care

With its cold, wet weather, snow and ice, winter has a particularly harmful effect on vehicles. Drivers must pay attention to specific issues in the colder months to care for their vehicles and prevent paintwork damage.

Vehicle care in winter

Cars are most susceptible to the weather in winter. Three aspects of car care are vital at this time of year:

  1. The car should be washed regularly to remove grit, salt deposits and other contamination.
  2. The paintwork should be sealed to stop moisture and aggressive substances attacking the bodywork.
  3. The windscreen washer system must be in proper working order and be filled with an effective winter cleaning agent to ensure clear vision.

Frost protection for cars

A good winter windscreen cleaning agent will remove oil, soot, grit, salt and other typical forms of winter soiling with just a few strokes of the wipers. The cleaning agent must prevent the nozzles icing up, stop the washer fluid freezing onto the windscreen and be suitable for fan-type nozzles. Inferior-quality products could cause stress cracks in the paintwork and headlight lenses.

Corrosion protection

The underbody and cavities in particular need to be well protected against moisture, grit, salt and aggressive influences. The right underseal will prevent the formation of rust and corrosion on the vehicle underbody, the undersides of wings, wheel wells, car doors, edges and weld seams with lasting effect. It should be ensured that the product used is elastic and resistant to abrasion, cold, heat, grit, salt and splashing water.
