Cleaning and leaving

Regular leaving in representation branch Audi promotes its safety and is one of conditions of acceptance of claims on a guarantee in case of detection of corrosion damages and defects of a paint and varnish covering of a body.

Car sink

The best protection frame of the car from harmful influence of environment is its frequent sink and preservation of a paint and varnish covering.

The longer there are on a paint and varnish covering pollution which have stuck to it, the their destroying influence is stronger. The heat or humidity strengthen effect. So, depending on the circumstances, there can be sufficient a car sink once a week. But can quite be the sink with the subsequent preservation of a paint and varnish covering will suffice once a month. After period end посыпания a road covering I will merge necessarily thoroughly помойте the bottom.

Automatic installations of a sink

The varnish of the car is enough прочен for a usual sink of the car in automatic washing installations.

At an automatic sink it is enough to observe usual safety measures (preliminary close windows and the roof panel). Aerials of a factory complete set for radio, phone/system навигации* are in car salon.

At a car complete set special autoaccessories, for example, a spoiler, a luggage carrier on a roof, a radio antenna etc. is better to consult at the personnel of washing installation.

Manual sink

For a manual sink of the car a lot of water is required.

In the beginning soak and смойте a dirt.

Wash the car with a sponge from top to down.

Shampoo use only in exceptional cases.

Rinse the car water.

Dry the car a skin for cleaning of glasses.

Observe big enough distance in relation to soft components of the car.

At a car sink the cleaning device of a high pressure necessarily follow instructions of the manufacturer of the given device. It especially concerns pressure and dispersion distance. Observe big enough distance in relation to soft materials, such as rubber hoses or изоляционные materials. Use of not directed atomizers or the polluted mills is not supposed at all.

Covering preservation

Good preservation substantially protects the car from environment influence, and also even from insignificant mechanical damages.

The paint and varnish covering of the car can be processed liquid wax after a week after delivery to you of the new car.

The protective layer of the preservative representing firm wax, is put anew not later than the effect скатывания a thaw of water from a pure covering will obviously disappear.

Stuck mainly in a warm season on a forward part and a forward bumper the rests of insects, as a rule, leave from a paint and varnish covering with свеженанесённым preservative is much easier.

Polishing

Polishing serves for luster restoration.

Polishing is necessary only in the event that the paint and varnish covering has lost an attractive kind, but to restore luster, using preservatives, any more it is not possible.

If polish used thus does not contain preserving components after polishing it is necessary to execute preservation of a paint and varnish covering, see above.

Glasses are necessary for cleaning regularly also from within.

For drying of glasses use a special fabric or a skin for glasses. Intended for processing of the varnished surfaces a skin do not use for drying of glasses since the preservative rests negatively affect visibility.

Threads of heating of back glass are on an internal surface of glass. Gluing of labels on a thread of electroheating of back glass is not supposed not to damage them.

Rubber consolidations

Rubber consolidations of doors, cowl, luggage carrier, the panel of a roof and glasses keep the properties and serve longer if them from time to time to rub with the special means intended for care by rubber products (for example, silicone an aerosol).

Strongly stuck products of deterioration of brake overlays can be removed бескислотным means for cleaning of disks. Kislotosoderzhashchie means for cleaning of disks can be aggressive in relation to a surface of wheel bolts.

Regular processing of disks by liquid firm wax prevents their premature pollution.

Damages of a paint and varnish covering eliminate before rust occurrence (Has undressed Repair of insignificant damages кузовных panels).

Legkosplavnye disks of wheels
