a car

A car (from other Greek, self and Latin mobilis is mobile, fast) is a vehicle, in the aggregate autos, a motor vehicle is a motor trackless road vehicle. The main functional purpose of the car is to perform transport work. Road transport in industrialized countries occupies a leading place compared to other types of transport in terms of passenger traffic. A modern car consists of 15–20 thousand parts, of which 150–300 are the most important and require the greatest expenses in operation. The concept includes a passenger car, truck, bus, trolleybus, armored personnel carrier, but does not include an agricultural tractor and a motorcycle.

Passenger car - a car designed to carry passengers and baggage, with a capacity of 2 to 8 people. With more seats for passengers, the car is considered a bus (minibus). The first car was created in 1876.

Frozen glass

Замерзшие стекла - Зимние автохитрости

How to solve the problem: mix vinegar and water (3 to 1) and spray it on the glass.

How to prevent: if the glass is already frozen, then add pure alcohol (600 ml), water (200 ml) and dishwashing detergent (1 drop) to the dispenser (1 l). Spray the mixture on the icy glass.

Frozen castle

Заледеневший замок - Зимние автохитрости

How to solve the problem: the usual means for disinfecting hands perfectly helps to remove the formed ice and put the mechanism into action. Put a few drops on the key or in the hole, and everything will go like clockwork. You can also use the old proven method: heat the key with a cigarette lighter and insert it into the lock. But be careful, do not burn yourself.

How to prevent: so that the lock does not freeze, inject a bit of WD-40 into the well before the onset of extreme cold. It will take a few minutes, but it will relieve you of problems with the castle in winter.

Doors do not open

Двери не открываются - Зимние автохитрости

How to prevent freezing seals on the doors? This will help the usual culinary spray (this is sold in any supermarket). Just spray it on the rubber door gasket and wipe with a paper towel.

Misted windows

Запотевшие окна - Зимние автохитрости

How to solve the problem: wipe the window with an eraser for the blackboard - it will no longer sweat, and there will be no divorce.

How to prevent: fill the old sock or cloth bag with cat litter and place it under the seat. The filler makes the air less humid, and the smoke on the windows will no longer bother you.

Tip: do not leave open containers with liquid or water in your car overnight.

Ice on the side mirrors

Лед на боковых зеркалах - Зимние автохитрости

How to prevent: to avoid the formation of ice on the mirrors, simply wrap them overnight in plastic bags and tightly secure with a rubber band. After removing the packages in the morning, you will see that the mirrors are perfectly clean, and you don’t have to spend time cleaning them.

Frozen and fogged lights

Замерзшие и запотевшие фары - Зимние автохитрости

How to prevent: to start the lights must be carefully cleaned, and then apply a thin layer of wax. Wax will not allow snow or water to settle. The effect lasts for several weeks, and you will not need to constantly wipe them.

Stuck in the snow

Застрял в снегу - Зимние автохитрости

In fact, if you have not buried the car with your head, then it is easy to get out of the snow and without help.

How to solve the problem: let a couple of packs of cat litter always be in your trunk. If the car stalled (especially helps on the ice), pour a little filler under the wheels, and you can easily leave.

There is one more very good trick about which very few people know. Take floor mats and put them under the wheels - this will create traction, and you will cope with an unpleasant situation.
