Believe me, I have experienced some bad, bad winters in 50 years of driving and so might I suggest that perhaps you park the wipers in their 'service' position and then place some Newspaper underneath them or better still a piece of old bedding/sheets cut to size that can be placed over the width of the screen and then tucked in to the doors prior to closing (this might damage the rubber surround, I suppose).Don't have a garage to put the car in at night(bummer)
Bloody winter is here and hate having to get up earlier in the morning's to scrape the windows.
doe's anyone know if you can get a vw winscreen cover?or is it a trip to halfraud's?
Apparentley so, nor is it good for rubbers (the ones around the windows, not the ones in your wallets) but that could be an old wives tale.Yes but isn't de icer bad for your paint work?
Can ayone else confirm if de-icer is indeed bad for paintwork? - I've often wondered this but never known for sure. What does it do? (to paint, not ice!)
I have seen deicer re freeze and was even worse to scrape off!!!! Only time i have used de icer was for un freezing a lock on my mk3 golf.Dont scrape..............use de icer the windscreens are too soft these days and cause scratching very easy............
From my experience, as an industrial polmer chemist and Paint analyst I would think that the solvents comprising most de-icers would have practically no effect on car paintwork especially at the surface temperatures in which they are supposed to be used i.e. less than, say, 2 degrees celcius or well below this.I park the car as close as poss to the side of the house,help's a little but not enough,so some say don't scrape the windows because it scratches the glass,and other's say don't use de-icer as it's not good for the paint work!so which one is the best?
