Time
10 minutes
Difficulty
Check all the switches, make sure everything works
Check front lights, main, dipped beam and indicators
Check rear light cluster, brake, fog and indicators
Why not lubricate your hinges? Use a can of lithium grease, spray a very small amount onto each door hinge, and the bonnet catch
Check the efficiency of the washer jet nozzles. Are they aiming high enough on the windscreen? If needed, adjust the aim using a pin or a very small screwdriver
Check condition of the wiper blades – any cracking or fraying indicates replacement is required. Replace both blades (replace yearly)
