1.17.7. Glasses


Visibility is not only comfort, but also safety. Therefore hardly it is necessary to remind that screen wipers, having blown and heating of glasses should be serviceable. The brushes leaving on glass opaque strips, throw out safely. And buying new, try to choose the firm – Bosch, ITE, Champion... Inhabitants of northern regions can try brushes with heating which are connected to an onboard network, – they appeared not so long ago on sale.

One more element of active safety – lateral rear-view mirrors. In the winter they daily should be cleared of an ice crust or snow. Their initial installation that delivers additional efforts thus gets off. In the presence of superfluous $250 you can establish mirrors with electroheating and the electric drive which will make communication with the car more pleasant.

Now it is direct about glasses. Their survey is better for entrusting the expert, but also personal control will not prevent. After all even the small chip on a windshield in the first frost after an autumn rain will turn into a high-grade crack. Existing technologies of repair allow to eliminate similar defect without glass removal. It is simpler and cheaper, than replacement flew down – repair (crack removal) in the length of 10 cm will cost $50, and new glass and its "insert" – at least in $350.

One more "winter" problem – a zapotevaniye of glasses. At serviceable system of ventilation arises seldom, but... Application of liquids-antizapotevateley, for example, Anti-Fog or Never Fog which it is enough to put on glass of times a week helps.
