Returning to driving might be a bit tricky, so here are some post-lockdown tips for your car.
It takes half an hour of driving to charge your battery and it’s unlikely you’ll have done that lately. If your car won’t start, you can use a charger, jump start it or seeking support from your local garage.
When a car’s been left for a while, the rubber on the tyres starts to break down tyres can develop flat spots. The weight of your car also weakens the structure of your tyres so it’s worth checking them for pressure and condition.
Lack of use affects your brakes, as corrosion builds up between the brake pads and discs. This can lead to them getting stuck together, which may be a safety hazard. If you suspect your brakes might need attention, then book a brake check with your local garage.
Show your car you still love it by giving it a good clean, inside and out. While it’s probably not at the top of your to-do list, it’s an essential part of your regular car maintenance. A thorough clean removes any dirt or grease that can damage the paintwork whilst an interior clean gives you a fresh car to enjoy for your first drive.
A clean gives you the opportunity to check everything is working as it should.
The best way to ensure that your car’s working as it should is to book an inexpensive check at your local Ellesmere Port garage of your wheels, tyres, brakes, headlights and any other parts you are concerned about.
