Keeping your vehicle well maintained is important all year round, but doubly so in winter, if you are looking for an alternative garage who are specialists in vehicle servicing and maintenance

Make sure all exterior lights are working correctly and that windscreen wiper blades are in good condition. Check the oil, coolant and washer fluid levels. And, don’t leave home on that long trip over lonely country roads without enough fuel for the journey.

The following checks will help ensure your vehicle is ready for winter:

Note: Before carrying out these basic checks, make sure your vehicle is cold and parked on a flat, level surface.

Tyres – check the tyre pressure regular and check tyre condition to see if there is adequate tread. Look for damage such as splits or bulges and check the pressure. If you live in an area particularly at risk of snow consider purchasing winter tyres or snow socks which give you greater traction and control.

The minimum depth of tread on your tyres is 1.6 millimetres, across the central ¾ which is 75% of the tread around the complete circumference of the tyre.

If your tread depth is between 1.6 and 3mm then it is time to start thinking about ordering a new set of wheels for your ride.

Worn tyres won’t hold the road in wet conditions as well as those with a good, deep tread.

Don’t Forget The 20p Test

And Don’t Forget The 20p Test 

Alternatively you can use the quick and simple 20p test. Insert a 20p coin into the lowest tread depth of your tyres. If you can’t see the outer rim around the edge of the coin shown in the RED, then your tyre is safe and has a minimum of 3mm tread depth. If you CAN see the rim then your tyre tread is less than 3mm and should be checked by a professional.

AntiFreeze Coolant – ensure that coolant is between the minimum and maximum markers on the water tank. It is also important that there is sufficient anti-freeze in the coolant. If you’re uncertain, have a look at your handbook or get us your local garage to check the strength. Anti-freeze is cheap but damage from a frozen engine can be very expensive to put right.

Screenwash – make sure you have enough screenwash and that the concentration is suitable for cold conditions. Not all screenwash is the same so look for the temperature it protects down to. You should be looking for protection down to down to -10 degrees C and if you live in areas subject to the greatest extremes of weather, down to -20 degrees C. If you don’t use a good quality screenwash there is a danger your washer pump could freeze which might lead to the fuse blowing and your wipers not working because they are often on the same fuse.

Wiper blades – clean your wiper bladed with a clean cloth by just lifting the wiper from the windscreen and rub the cloth up the main rubber part, check wiper blades for damage and replace if necessary. When wiper blades become frozen to glass it is very easy to damage them when freeing them up, we keep a vase range in stock for all makes and models.
