MAINTENANCE TIPS FROM SOLARPLEXIUS
Winter is slowly approaching spring, with more sunshine and warmer temperatures. With Solarplexius tinting and sun protection in the car, the temperature inside the car decreases, which makes the journey more comfortable for the passengers. We want to give some simple maintenance tips for a better car environment.
In order for the car holiday to be as wonderful as you have imagined, there are a few things that should be arranged first. For example, a damaged window can ruin a good car holiday – so it is best to repair the windshield before departure. Here are more valuable tips for a summer on the road.
1. PROPER WASH + WAXING
After the winter months, the car is probably dirty. A proper wash is recommended for the summer and it may also be worth spending some money on wax. Then the dirt does not stick easily, which leads to fewer washes – good for both the wallet and the environment. In addition, it reduces the risk of getting a damaged windshield.

2. MAKE SURE THE WINDSCREEN IS FREE OF STONE SHOT
This may sound like a no-brainer, but there are actually many who go around with a broken box or stone chip. The windscreen accounts for up to 30 percent of the car’s total durability, so it is of utmost importance that it is complete.
An entire windshield is very important for the car’s overall strength.
3. CHECK THE AIR CONDITIONING
During the summer, the car’s air conditioning will probably have to work extra hard. To avoid unwanted surprises, it is a smart tip to check the AC in time, before the hottest period of the year is here. Before long journeys, it is also important to check that the air conditioning can withstand slightly higher speeds. Repairing air conditioning yourself is not recommended – in this case contact an authorized car repair shop.
4. CHECK THE TIRES
Just as important as repairing or replacing the windshield is checking the tires are equally essential. For example, if you have driven with snow chains during the winter, it may have caused wear on the rubber. Give the tires a visual inspection and check the tread depth before the car holiday this summer. In addition, many people fail to check the air pressure in the tires, which can cause great damage.
5. TEST THE BRAKES
During the winter, the brakes wear extra hard. This is partly due to the fact that there is more traffic and that most people are inclined to use brake more on slippery surfaces. Therefore, it is good to test the brakes, so that everything works as it should. If you are not comfortable doing it yourself, it is recommended to hire an experienced mechanic.
