Antifreeze Change – Old antifreeze flushed out of system to remove dirt and grime and new clean solution added.
Battery Check – The most common cause of winter breakdowns. A battery more than five years old may struggle in the cold – get it checked to avoid the inconvenience of an unplanned failure.
Lights Check – Check all lights. Vision is very important for all these dark winter nights ahead.
Tyres Check – Should have at least 3mm of tread for winter motoring. Consider winter tyres for improved safety.
Windscreen Check – Reduce dazzle from the low sun by keeping the screen clean inside and out. Now is a good time to renew worn wiper blades.
Screen Wash Change – 50% mix of a good quality screen wash to reduce the chance of freezing in frosty weather.
Locks and door seals – Stop doors freezing shut with a thin coat of polish or Vaseline on rubber door seals. A squirt of water dispersant (WD-40) in locks will help stop them freezing.
