Check your Car ~ Snow on it's way

AA Advice

* Engine/cooling system - check antifreeze levels. A 50/50 mix of antifreeze to water will protect the engine down to -34C
* Handbrake - check for damage to handbrake cable covering. Cables should be changed if water has penetrated
* Washers and wipers - a 50/50 mix of additive to water is needed in very cold weather. Switch wipers off when parked in frost. If ice forms on the wipers, doing so prevents damaging blades or overheating the wiper motor when the car is started
* Locks - oil door and boot locks and spray with water repellent to prevent freezing. Similarly for bonnet and fuel cap
* Diesel - can become waxy and unusable below -15C. Some additives can lower this temperature. If possible, garage your vehicle in extreme cold
* Check - oil level, battery, lights, and tyre tread and pressures
* Speed - driveonly as fast as conditions allow. Stopping distances are ten times longer in ice and snow
