Ford F-250 Super Duty Mirror

How to Maintain the Ford F-250 Super Duty Mirror

The Ford F-250 Super Duty is a large monster of a pick-up truck. It has a massive engine and big body capable of transporting your family, hauling parts, or pulling a trailer. But with size also comes navigation issues. Bigger vehicles tend to become a burden to drive on the road for the uninitiated. Changing lanes also require optimum visibility of the traffic behind you. This is why the Ford F-250 Super Duty mirror is designed as such. It is extended well enough to cover usual blind spots of long vehicles. It also features two separate mirrors to cover as much area behind as possible. Lastly, it has a built in signal lamp that is visible enough for oncoming traffic. Now, let's explore how we can extend its lifespan by following some basic steps. Here are tips on how to maintain the Ford F-250 Super Duty mirror.

  • Rinse your Ford F-250 Super Duty mirror with water.

You should rinse your Ford F-250 Super Duty with water regularly. This takes away the light layers of dirt from its surface. If you rinse your Ford F-250 mirror almost every day, then you have been keeping it squeaky clean.

  • Give your dirty mirror a good scrub using a sponge or wash mitt.

Most of the time washing with water doesn't do its job alone. If the layers of dirt grime have already accumulated, you should put on more elbow grease and give the mirror a good scrub. Soak your sponge or wash mitt in your car shampoo solution then wring out the excess. Proceed with gently scrubbing your mirror. Be careful not to apply too much pressure because it can scratch the surface of the mirror. After scrubbing, don't forget to rinse it again with water to remove the shampoo residue. Dried shampoo residue can leave unwanted marks on your mirror. It can be distracting once you drive out.

  • Wipe and dry your mirror with a clean cloth.

You can wipe your mirror with a clean cloth every so often or after your car wash. This leaves your mirror clear and ready for your next drive.
