Preparing Your Car For The Rainy Season

The rain is upon us once more and preparation must be made to protect our cars. Rainy season comes with lots of floods and these can be damaging to cars if preventive measures are not taken. Below are very important preparations that must be made to make our cars fit for the rainy season.

Test Your Windshield Wipers


Clean them and test for proper operation. If they are leaving streaks on your windshield, replace your wipers to be able to maintain a safe field of vision.

Check Your Tyre Tread To Detect Wear


Try the coin test. Insert a coin in the tread with head’s upside-down. If you cannot see 30% of the coin, then your tread is in good health. Consider new tyres if you see this 30%.

Check Your Brake Pads and Brake Fluid


Slippery conditions take their toll on brake life. If your car makes any kind of noise — a high-pitched squeal or a grinding noise — get your brakes checked immediately by a professional mechanic. Don’t forget to also check your brake fluid level. Top it up if necessary. You can order genuine brake pads on our online store here.

Use An Anti-Water Protector

Wax your car as regularly as you can. This helps to protect your car by creating a fine coat over your car. This helps rain water bead up and roll off your windshields and mirrors quickly. You can buy various genuine car wax and detailing solutions on our online store here.

Rainy season is a beautiful time to drive if only you prepare for it so stay safe.
