Chevrolet K1500 Mirror
Helpful Maintenance Tips for the Chevrolet K1500 Mirror
While your trusty Chevrolet K1500 pickup can certainly run without its side mirrors and rearview mirrors, you certainly wouldn't want to drive without them. That's how important they are in keeping you safe and aware on the road. So it's certainly a no-brainer that these components must be maintained well and replaced once they break down.
Maintenance of the Chevrolet K1500 mirror is key to keeping it in good condition. In this guide, we'll show you some ways on how you can do just that:
- Use a glass cleaner.
Many vehicle owners still wash their automobile mirrors with car shampoo and water, but while this can clean dirt and stains off the mirror's surface, it's still not as effective as glass cleaner. This is because glass cleaner is specially formulated to clean glass including those of mirrors, leaving no streaks and a cleaner finish than detergent or car shampoo.
Most glass cleaners now come in a spray bottle, so cleaning mirrors is as easy as spraying the mirror surface and wiping it dry. We recommend using old newspapers for this, as they leave no fabric strands or residue compared with cloth or paper towels.
- Deal with hard water stains.
If you live in an area where water has a high mineral content, hard water stains on mirror surfaces is likely to be a common problem. Minor spots can usually be removed by glass cleaner, but for particularly stubborn stains you can try using white vinegar. Simply apply the vinegar straight into the affected area and rub with a piece of old newspaper until it clears up. We also recommend wiping any water droplets from the mirror as soon as possible to help prevent the stains from reappearing in the future.
- Keep an ear out any strange rattling noises.
If your mirror starts to make rattling noises, it may indicate that the mirror glass or one of its internal components is starting to come loose. Check the mirror glass first; if it remains fixed inside the its frame, the noise might be coming from loose wiring or another component inside the mirror assembly.
