2017 Range Rover Evoque

THE EXTERIOR

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

Following cleaning of the vehicle's exterior (particularly with a pressure washer), it is recommended that the vehicle is taken for a short drive to dry out the brakes.

CAUTION

Remove any heavy deposits of mud and dirt with a hose before washing the vehicle.

CAUTION

Some high pressure cleaning systems are sufficiently powerful to damage the wheels and brake system. Never aim a water jet directly at the wheels or brakes.

CAUTION

Some high pressure cleaning systems are sufficiently powerful enough to penetrate suspension joints and door/window seals, and damage trim and door locks. Never aim the water jet directly at any camera, 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 that the pressure washer nozzle is always at a distance of more than 12 ins (300 mm) from any component of the vehicle.

CAUTION

Do not use a high pressure washer or steam cleaner in the engine compartment.

CAUTION

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

CAUTION

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

CAUTION

Use only cleaning products approved for use on vehicles.

CAUTION

Camera lenses must be treated with care. Clean with a low pressure hose and wipe with a damp cloth.

Stubborn stains such as tar spots and grease on the paintwork, may require the use of Stoddard Solvent. After use, make sure the area is washed with warm, soapy water to remove all traces of the solvent.

NOTES

Do not apply polish to any unpainted areas of the bumper mouldings, it will become ingrained in the textured finish.
