How to look after your Mercedes-Benz.

A few simple tips to maintain your vehicle.

During stage 4 restrictions in Metropolitan Melbourne, it is still important to look after your Mercedes-Benz.

Please read on to learn how to maintain your vehicle during this time.

Battery and charging

If you are not using your car regularly, we recommend starting the engine and letting it run for a period of at least 15 minutes every two weeks. It is important to allow the engine to run for this long so the battery can charge properly. Be sure that your car is outside when the engine is running and don’t leave it unattended.
⠀⠀
To avoid your battery going flat, you can purchase a trickle charger from our parts department for $288.00. This will maintain the correct charge level for your battery to avoid it going flat during extended period of non-use.
⠀⠀
To order yours, please contact our parts department on 1300 MBW MBW.

Tyres and brakes

It is important you check the pressure of your tyres if you haven’t driven in a while – especially if you intend on driving on a motorway where high speed is required.
⠀⠀
To find out the recommended pressure your tyres should be, it can be found on the inside of the fuel or charge flap.
⠀⠀
If your car has been left in wet or damp conditions, a thin layer of surface oxidisation can build up on the surface of the brake discs, which may mean they sound a little noisy at first. This is perfectly normal and gently applying the brakes when driving will help clear this.


Fuel

If you don’t plan on travelling or using your car for an extended period of time, we recommend filling up your fuel tank to full to reduce the chance of any condensation building up in your vehicle.
