Washing by hand

Carefully remove all deposits of road salt as soon as possible when driving in winter.

Also, clean the insides of the wheels when washing the underbody of the vehicle.

Х► Do not use hot water and do not wash the vehicle in direct sunlight.

Х► Use a soft car sponge for cleaning.

Х► Use a gentle cleaning agent, e.g. a Mercedes-Benz approved car shampoo.

Х► Wash down the vehicle with a gentle water jet.

Х► Do not point the water jet directly at the air inlets.

Х► Use plenty of water and rinse the sponge frequently.

Х► Rinse the vehicle with clean water and dry it thoroughly with a chamois.

Х► Do not allow the cleaning agent to dry on the paintwork.
