11.24.1. A car sink

At the heart of care of a body — a regular sink and processing by special protective structures. To wash a body it is possible on a specialised sink (only manually, without application of mechanical brushes) or it is independent in places specially taken away for this purpose.
For an independent sink the bucket and two brushes — big with a long soft bristle (it is better with the long handle) for a sink of a body and small with a rigid bristle for a sink of forward and back panels of a body and disks of wheels, and also some rags be required.
It is not necessary to wash the car on the sun and in the conditions of a strong dust content of air at a strong wind.
For environmental contamination prevention wash the car in specially taken away places equipped with the waste water drain or local treatment facilities.
Before a car sink clean drainage apertures of doors and thresholds (Procleaning of drainage apertures of a body see).
Do not dust also a dirt a body a dry rag — so it is possible to scratch a paint and varnish covering.
Do not use for washing gasoline, kerosene, soda and sea water in order to avoid damage of a paint and varnish covering, rubber and plastic details of a body.
It is impossible to wash a body in frosty weather and to leave in a frost on the car with a wet body: at water freezing on a paint surface microcracks can be formed.
It is impossible to apply gasoline or solvent to clearing of plastic details.
The brake liquid, electrolit, alkalis, soda solution destroy a paint and varnish covering. At hit of these substances immediately wash out and wipe a body a pure rag.

1. We recommend to wash a body in a shade as at fast drying of a paint and varnish covering under direct solar beams on a body there are light stains. If there is a possibility, wash a body with water from a hose and a soft sponge.
2. Carefully wash out junctions of details of a body and welded seams, places завальцовки panels of doors and a cowl.
3. At a sink подкапотного spaces water should not get on electric equipment elements. We recommend to use special means for engine clearing. After a sink blow air or wipe dry electric equipment elements.
4. It is better to wash glasses with the soft rag moistened with water with addition of the washing liquid.
5. For cleaning of elements of an upholstery of salon and seats it is recommended to use a vacuum cleaner. Fat stains from an upholstery delete a soap solution or special means for interior cleaning.
6. Plastic details of internal and external furnish can apply usual silicone greasing to shine giving. Put its thin layer on plastic details and polish with a pure rag.
Do not use the means containing silicone, for steering wheel processing.

7. Wheel arches wash or a water stream under pressure, or a hair brush. The bottom wash with a hair brush not less often than an once in a year, it is desirable prior to the beginning of winter operation, before restoration of an anticorrosive covering. Periodically wash out the bottom and wheel arches during the winter period to clear them from противогололедных reagents.
