keep car clean and dry
Keeping the car clean is the most important thing. The less dust in the car, the better. The life of the car will increase. Keep the bonnet and the foot area clean properly. If these two places are not taken care of properly, the car can get damaged. If there is any garbage oil accumulated in the body of the car, if there is garbage, if the brake pad is garbage, then clean it immediately. Clean the headlamp glass with a cotton cloth.
Check the tire to see if there is any cut or tear. If it is cut somewhere, then change or get it made. Keep checking the air pressure from time to time. Also check the tire kept separately for stepney. If there is a fault in that too, then replace it as a tire puncture can cause problems. To get more safety in driving the car, get the wheel balancing and alignment checked. The risk of slipping during rain will be reduced.
wiring and battery
Make sure to check the wiring spread around the car. Check if any wire has come out from outside. Make sure that the car’s electricals are in good order, without any faults. If the outer part of a wire is missed or the wire is cut, then it can become a big danger if it comes in contact with rain.
wiper and ac
If the wiper blade is broken, replace it immediately. Glass cannot be cleaned with such a blade. Water freezes everywhere on the inverted glass. This reduces visibility during rains. Fill the wiper fluids completely with soapy water. Garbage also falls with the drops of rain. This can damage the glass of the car. Wiper fluids will work to clean it.
Car doors are completely closed during rain. That’s why you will need to run AC. If the AC is not turned on, the water vapor will freeze on the glass. To avoid this, get the AC filter cleaned before the monsoon.
The brakes are the most important to check. If the brakes are faulty then an accident can happen. Check brakes at home. Start the engine and put your foot on the brake pedal. Check by putting equal weight on the pedal. If the clutch is loosening then there could be a leak in the brake system. If there is any vibration in the brake pedal then it may be that the brake pedal is broken. Get it replaced immediately. Brake fluid should also be in the required quantity. Otherwise the brakes will not work properly during rain.
The visibility of the car may decrease in heavy rain. Car lights can be seen by other car drivers on the road, so that the lights should be corrected. Check that the headlight, brake light and hazard indicators are working properly. If the light dim is burning, then change its bulb. If there is any fluctuation in the light then there may be a problem with the battery. For this it is necessary to change the battery. If moisture has penetrated inside the light, clean the headlamp and tail lamp lenses.
paint and bodywork
If the paint of the vehicle has been omitted then the body can catch rust. The amount of rust increases in rain. Road dirt should not accumulate inside and outside the vehicle. This can damage the mats of the car. To avoid this, get underbody coating, anti rust coating and paint protective coating.
Do not start engine if stuck in water
Cars often get stuck on the roads in the rain. If this happens then do not start the car. This allows water to enter the engine through the tail pipe. This can damage the entire system of the vehicle. First take the car out of the water somehow. If you suddenly see water on the road while driving, do not slow down the car, take it out quickly. There will be no fear of getting stuck in the water. If it is raining lightly, then keep the window of the vehicle slightly open. This will prevent the growth of fungus inside. Always keep a flashlight, umbrella, newspaper pages and pieces of cloth in the vehicle. Keep some biscuits and a bottle of water in view of the long jam in the rain.
