Mitsubishi Lancer Owners Manual
Waxing the vehicle will help prevent the adherence of dust and road chemicals to the paintwork. Apply a wax solution after washing the vehicle, or at least once every three months to assist displacing of water.
Do not wax your vehicle in direct sunlight. You should wax after the surfaces have cooled.
► Waxes containing high abrasive compounds should not be used. Such waxes
remove rust and stains effectively from the paintwork but they are harmful to the
lustre on the painted surface and the plated surface.
Further, they are harmful to glossy surfaces such as grille, garnish, mouldings, etc.
► Do not use petrol or paint thinners to remove road tar or other contamination to the vehicle surface.
► Do not apply wax on the areas having black mat coating as it can cause uneven discolouration, patches, blurs, etc. If stained with wax, immediately wipe off with a piece of soft cloth and warm water.
► On vehicles equipped with the sunroof, be careful when waxing the area around the sunroof opening, not to put any wax on the weatherstrip (black rubber). If stained with wax, the weatherstrip cannot maintain a weatherproof seal with the sunroof.
