- Watch for corrosion, as the chemicals used for de-icing roads during the winter can find their way on
your vehicle all year round.
- Make sure to address paint chips and other damage to the vehicle as soon as possible because
these areas are more susceptible to corrosion.
- Cleaning plugs and sockets with water (not soap) and a plug and socket brush, and then applying
dielectric grease to plug and socket pins help to prevent corrosion from forming.
