Monsoon is inbound, and this brings with it the beautiful rain and cold breeze. And during this season it’s important to take care of your vehicle. And Doers is here to help you with some of the DIY methods to take care your vehicles.
Rain creates some of the treacherous conditions for driving and also causes some of the long-lasting damages to your vehicle. Doers will help you with advice and services to limit damage to your vehicle and also to have uninterrupted driving experience. Below is the list of things that you can do take care of your vehicle during this monsoon season.
As appealing it is to go on a drive in the rainy season and enjoy the nature, it’s equally risky as well. And one of the risks is the tyres. As there is running water on the roads it causes aquaplaning and this increases the brake distance. Aquaplaning is a layer of water between road surface and tyres. So it’s important to make sure that the threads of tyres are deep to reduce it. A tyre with good threads disperses the water and reduces the risk of aquaplaning. Also, tyres with good tread depth reduce the brake distance which helps on avoiding any collisions. So next time you decide to go for a drive make sure to check the tyre threads to have a safe drive.
Maintaining the car’s paint is very important as it enhances the beauty of the car. But during monsoon, the raindrops on the body of the car causes water spots, which doesn’t look good. It also causes damage to the vehicle paint and corrosion in the long term. So it’s important to avoid water spots and to do that the car should be parked in a well-ventilated space. You can use wax polish which creates a thin layer protecting the body paint. Also greasing the door hinges is necessary to avoid wear and tear. The most exposed part of the car is the chassis during the rainy season, as this does not have any paint to provide it with basic protection. So its very important to protect chassis as it can corrode very easily. For this, you can use anti-corrosion spray to protect the exposed metal parts of the car.
Brakes are the vital part of the car. So do make sure that you check the brake pads for wear and tear, and if necessary replace the brake pads. Also, check the brake fluid levels and the brake lines to avoid any air/water into the brake lines.
Proper functioning wipers are very important for driving in the rain. The wipers wear out easily so it’s important to make sure that wipers are in good condition. Also, make sure that wiper works at all speeds since the speed of the wipers determines the visibility during rain. And its advised to keep the wiper bottler filled which will help in cleaning the windshield of any water spots when needed.
One of the major challenges in monsoon is keeping the interior in pristine condition. As water causes bad odour inside the car. So to avoid the bad odour use fabric mats as these soak water easily compared to the rubber mats which causes bad odour easily. Make sure to vacuum the car regularly to avoid bad odour developing and keep the windows open during a sunny day to let the seats, mats dry from the sun and wind.
