Maintaining Your Vehicle & Tyres During Lockdown
This is the time to keep our vehicle mechanically sound. If you are living in Scotland you would have a clear idea on how rugged the natural landscape is. No one wants to take a risk of a car breaking down during this time when many major car garages are closed. To avoid such situations, proper vehicle maintenance should be considered.
Refresh your brake system
If lockdown has not let you use your vehicle frequently. Or if you have parked it outside in the garage for a prolonged period of time, it is time you check it for seizing components, such as the brakes. Yes it is a fact that a vehicle that has not been used for a long time can cause its brakes to clasp. To avoid such mishap , you should move your vehicle back and forth twice or more a week . This will help the car brakes in run smoothly.
Get mobile tyre fitting
The rugged landscape of Scotland can cause wear to car tyres. Look out for signs of cuts and bulges in the tyres. If you see such signs of wear and tear in your tyres then it is time for you to replace them with good quality tyres that can thrive for longer time periods. With the lockdown we are all reluctant to visit a garage for fittings – so mobile tyre fitting is a smart choice where experts will come to you. You can now have your tyres fitted at home or in your local area at any time you require. Simply by booking online from Fife Auto Centre (01592631211).
Recharge your battery
Standing idle your vehicle may not be getting essential power sources used to recharge its internal system . It is true many of the components in your car regain their power by electric currents in the engine. One major component that regains power through the engine is the vehicle’s battery. You should monitor your battery at least once a week , and in case you see signs of battery getting flat , you should know that it is due to lack of charging reaching it. You can easily give power to your battery by restarting the vehicle twice a week for as less as 15 minutes. Or in case you think it still requires ample recharge, you can use battery charging shocks to provide electric current to it.
Not so much rocket science, but easy vehicle maintenance steps at home will enable you to keep your car in a roadworthy condition, even during the lockdown.
