Your Winter Car Checklist

Get your car winter-ready! 

It goes without saying that we need to keep our cars in good condition throughout the year, but this takes a bit of extra thought in winter.
The colder weather exposes us to some of the most difficult driving conditions and if your car has any developing faults, the icy winter is the time when they will come to light.

There are a few simple checks that you can do to ensure your vehicle remains free from faults and incidents on the road all through the chilly season - preparing your car for winter couldn't be simpler: 

  • Check your car battery - If your battery isn’t in great condition, the cold and dampness could damage it. It is possible to check the condition of your car battery if you have the correct equipment, but it’s much easier to ask an expert at Dan Seaman Motors to check it out. 
  • Get your tyres checked - As your tyres are the only part of your vehicle in direct contact with the road, it’s important to check they’re in sound and safe condition.  
  • Check your windscreen wiper blades If your windscreen wipers are old or worn they won’t work effectively, meaning it can be difficult to see the road ahead of you. If they’re failing to clear the front or rear windscreens then they will need replacing. . 
  • Check that your lights are working - Make sure your lights are clean & operating. Check the headlights in all of their functions, rear lights, brake lights, fog lights, and reverse lights. Finally, check your number plate light along with your indicators front, back, and on the sides of the car. 
  • Check AntiFreeze - Antifreeze stops the water in the engine's cooling system from freezing To test the effectiveness of your antifreeze, you can get an antifreeze tester or ask an expert at Dan Seaman Motors to check it out. 
  • Check windscreen wash - You spend a lot of time using your windscreen wipers in the wet winter weather. Dirt & debris may land on your windscreen obstructing your view, requiring windscreen wash to clear your view.
