BODYWORK MAINTENANCE
You should
– Wash your car frequently, with the
engine off, with cleaning prod-
ucts recommended by our Network
(never use abrasive products) and
be sure to jet-rinse off:
– spots of tree resin and industrial
grime;
– bird droppings, which cause
a chemical reaction with the
paint that rapidly discolours
paintwork and may even cause
the paint to peel off;
Wash the vehicle immediately to
remove these marks since it is im-
possible to remove them by pol-
ishing;
– salt, particularly in the wheel
arches and underneath the body
after driving in areas where the
roads have been gritted;
– mud in the wheel arches and un-
derneath the body which form
damp patches.
(continued)
– Observe the vehicle stopping dis-
tances when driving on gravelled
surfaces to prevent paint damage.
– Repair, or have repaired quickly,
areas where the paint has been dam-
aged, to prevent corrosion spread-
ing.
– Remember to visit the body shop
periodically if your vehicle has an
anti-corrosion warranty. Refer to the
Maintenance Service Booklet.
– Respect local regulations about
washing vehicles (e.g. do not wash
your vehicle on a public highway).

– Before going through a roller type
car wash, return the windscreen
wiper stalk to park position (refer to
the information on the "Windscreen
wash/wipe" in Section 1). Check the
mounting of external accessories,
additional lights, door mirrors, etc.,
and be sure to hold the wiper blades
and radio aerial in place with adhe-
sive tape.
Remove the radio aerial mast if your
vehicle is fitted with this equipment.
– Spray mechanical components,
hinges, etc., with products approved
by our Technical Department to
protect them after they have been
cleaned.
We have selected special products
to care for your vehicle and you can
obtain these from the manufactur-
er's accessory outlets.
