To keep the appearance of the car hub beautiful, in addition to taking extra care to prevent damage to the car hub during driving, it is also necessary to maintain and maintain the car hub regularly. If you have the time, a thorough cleaning should be done weekly. Car wheel maintenance is easy to be ignored by car owners. In this regard, wheel repair experts point out that the wheel hub is like the "shoes" of the car. If the perfect vehicle shape is matched with a pair of very ordinary "shoes", the overall image will be greatly improved. Therefore, car wheel maintenance should attract enough attention from car owners.
When there are stains on the surface of the wheel hub that are difficult to remove, professional cleaning agents should be used. This cleaning agent can often remove stains gently and effectively and reduce damage to the aluminum alloy surface. In addition, there is a metal protective film on the hub itself, so special care should be taken not to use paint brighteners or other abrasive materials when cleaning. Be careful during the driving process to avoid "flawless damage" to the wheel hub caused by scratches. Once there is a scratch or deformation, it should be repaired and repainted as soon as possible.
To avoid this phenomenon, the car should be diligent in washing the rims when it is still new. The vehicles that are driven every day should be washed at least once a week. Then rinse with plenty of water. If the car has been driving for a period of time and is not usually cleaned and maintained frequently, and a layer of hard dark brown coking has formed on the rim, then a stronger rim cleaner should be used. To remove the coking, you must be patient. After spraying the special cleaning agent, you must wait for a while to let the solvent soften the coking, then brush it off with a sponge or coarse cloth, and then rinse it with clean water.
The following are the specific steps for repairing: 1. Check the scars. If there is no damage to the inner side of the hub, it can be repaired simply. Use paint thinner to wipe around the scars to remove dirt. 2. It is difficult to remove the dirt on the deepest part of the scratch. At this time, you can use a toothpick to clean it thoroughly. 3. In order to prevent unrelated parts from being painted by mistake, it is best to carefully stick the adhesive tape around the scar.
4. Arrange the tip of the brush and apply the finishing paint. The paint will shrink slightly after drying, and it is better to paint it slightly protruding. 5. After painting, it will take about a week for it to dry completely. After drying, apply water-resistant paper dipped in soapy water to smooth the surface.
6. After wiping with water-resistant paper, use a mixture to wipe out the light, and then wax. For deep scars, the key point is to observe whether the metal surface is exposed. If the metal surface is not visible, it will not rust, so you can concentrate on painting the finishing paint. Use the tip of the pen to go up little by little, and then wait for the paint to dry completely.
Daily maintenance is also indispensable. When the temperature of the wheel hub is high, it should be allowed to cool down naturally before cleaning, and it must not be washed with cold water. Otherwise, the aluminum alloy wheel hub will be damaged, and even the brake disc will be deformed to affect the braking effect. Today, I will briefly introduce the method of maintaining car wheels in the rainy season.
1. For the phenomenon of rear wheel slippage, that is, when the rear half of the car body is slipping, Michelin tire experts suggest that no matter which direction the vehicle is slipping, at this time, turn the steering wheel in the direction of slipping and remember not to brake. May be soft. 2. When the four wheels slip, the owner will feel that the vehicle is rushing forward faster than usual. At this time, let the front wheels find the grip first, close the accelerator, do not step on the brakes, tap the clutch lightly, and make all movements as gentle as possible. Let the vehicle drive slowly until the slipping phenomenon disappears.
3. If the front wheels slip, that is, the steering wheel cannot be turned, the vehicle will go straight ahead and stop until it hits an obstacle. At this time, remember to wait for the wheels to turn before the steering wheel can turn until it returns to normal. Repeatedly step on the brakes so that the oil circuit can reach the most effective working state. The above is the introduction of the method of maintaining car wheels in the rainy season.
