moisture in  contact with the  vehicle.
Although the mud appears to be dry,
it  can  still  retain  the  moisture  and
promote corrosion.
High temperatures can also  acceler-

It  is  particularly  important   to  keep
your  car clean  and  free  of  mud or
accumulations   of  other   materials.
This  applies not  only  to  the  visible
surfaces    but   particularly    to   the
underside of the car.
When cleaning underneath the car,
give   particular   attention   to   the
components under the fenders and
other  areas  that are  hidden  from
view. Do a thorough job; just damp-
ening the accumulated  mud rather
than washing  it away  will acceler-

it. Water  under high  pressure and
steam  are particularly  effective  in
removing  accumulated   mud  and
corrosive materials.
