Entering the end of the year, the tropical climate of the country changed the rainy season. A time like this, cars are required to first. Because, usually the rainy season in Indonesia, especially in the big city, synonymous with congestion. Stagnant water, dysfunctional traffic lights, and impede the flow of cars because there is a strike or two wheels that take refuge under the bridge, a major cause some congestion.
Note the condition of windshield wipers because this component is the main tool in the rainy season. Give focus on the rubber, if found to be brittle or cracked, the rubber should be replaced in order to sweep up. Another way to detect the condition of the rubber wiper with respect to the former sapuannya. Excellent wiper will not leave the ears of water during the process of sweeping.
One thing to note if you want to replace the rubber wiper, look at the content of the rubber material. Containing synthetic rubber or flexible polymers have good power, making it more suitable for cars that have a curved windshield. In contrast, natural rubber is more suitable for cars that look in the mirror upright and straight ahead somewhat, because the rubber is a bit harsh.
Lighting and Electrical
When it rains, water vapor will occur in the surface air. Mixed with road dust, this composition will make a thin mist that quite disturbing when driving. Head lamp light rays that would be helpful driving, especially during heavy rains.
Also check the electrical system components. Make sure the batteries in konsisi good, and no cables are peeling, broken, or sagging. The entry of water into the terminal electrical or cable connection can ignite the occurrence of short-circuit and makes the car breaking down.
One of the constraints arising from the rainy season, namely the existence of a sufficiently high puddles in the road surface. So far not too high (less than half the car's wheels), it is not a problem to traverse. Just make sure the legs of your car, such as shockabsorber and rubber bushing, in good condition.
If shockabsorber leaking or torn rubber bushing, the water will easily seep into these two components. Sooner or later, the performance of the legs will be disrupted. As a result, traveling comfort will also be reduced.
The use of air conditioning in the rainy season serves to prevent condensation on the windshield, because with the AC on, the cabin has a temperature equal to or lower than the outside temperature. Because there is not much difference in temperature, moisture will not appear on the windshield. Therefore, make sure the air conditioner has enough freon, compressor is working properly, and lattice lines are not clogged.
When the rainy season, sometimes in the cabin smell 'musty' (dreadful). This problem itself arises from two things, because of damp and musty smell musty smell coming from the AC grid. Part of damp with moisture, can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner. While the odor emanating from the AC grid could be due to a leaking freon.
In the meantime, if you want to dry the cabin or spillage of water, avoid using a hair dryer because it can damage the carpet adhesive, so the loss of adhesive power. Then use the perfume as a late stage, when the cabin is completely clean or after the odor source has been cleaned.
