THE EXTERIOR

WARNING

Make sure the tail pipe is cool before polishing the tail pipe finishers. Failure to do so may result in personal injury.

CAUTION

After cleaning the vehicle's exterior, particularly with a pressure washer, the vehicle should be taken for a short drive to dry out the brakes.

CAUTION

To prevent damage to the vehicle when using a valeting service, make sure to advise them of the cleaning instructions contained within the Owner's handbook.

CAUTION

Some high pressure cleaning systems are sufficiently powerful enough to penetrate suspension joints, door/window seals and damage trim and door locks. Never aim the water jet directly at any cameras, the engine air intake, heater air intakes, body seals (doors, sunroof, windows, etc.) or at any components which may be damaged (lights, mirrors, exterior trim, suspension seals and gaiters, etc.). Make sure the pressure washer nozzle is always at a distance of more than 12 in (300 mm) from any component of the vehicle.

CAUTION

Do not use a power wash system in the engine bay area as it may cause damage.

CAUTION

Make sure you read and comply with all warnings and product instructions supplied with any cleaning products.

CAUTION

Never use cleaning products that are not approved for use on vehicles.

CAUTION

Substances which are corrosive, such as bird droppings, can damage the vehicle’s paintwork and should be removed as soon as possible.

CAUTION

When lifting the wiper blades for cleaning, use the Winter park position to avoid damage to the vehicle. See WINTER PARK POSITION.

After washing the vehicle, it is recommended to use a suitable metal polish on stainless steel or chrome finishers to restore the surface appearance.
