Mercedes Benz S500 Grille Issues

Your Mercedes Benz S500 is one fine ride, to say the least. Everything about it just exudes with style and luxury. However, its splendor could be threatened if your Mercedes Benz S500 grille isn't looking so well. Yes, your S500 will get lower points in the style department if your grill looks dirty or banged up. With those said, below are the things that could plague your Mercedes Benz S500 grille:

Streaks, Stains, and Other Blemishes

Since your Mercedes Benz S500 grille is at the front end of your ride, it's highly exposed to various road elements. Dirt, dust, and mud are some of the things that your grille can encounter every day. Still, the said road elements aren't so bad since you can easily wipe them off from your grille with just dish soap and water.

However, if you let those impurities sit on your Mercedes Benz S500 grille for far too long, they may turn into pesky streaks and stains and become harder to remove. When that happens, you won't be able to get rid of the blemishes with just plain dish soap and water-you'll need something more potent than that. You'd have to go for specialized cleaning agents.

Dents

Dents are major eyesores. These don't look good in any part of your ride, including your Mercedes Benz S500 grille. As you know, dents on your grille can come from a variety of sources. Minor collisions with other vehicles or objects could plant one of these on your beloved grille. While dents are seemingly permanent, there are in fact several ways to get rid of them. Hammers, plungers, and dry ice are some of the things most expert DIYers use to eliminate dents.

Dings and Scratches

While these aren't as easy to notice as dents, dings and scratches still won't do your Mercedes Benz S500 grille any good. But just like dents, dings and scratches can come from practically anything. Contact with hard or sharp objects is usually the cause of these though.

Don't lose hope if your Mercedes Benz S500 grille has dings or scratches on it. If dents can be fixed, dings and scratches can most certainly be repaired.

  • Maintenance Tips: Mercedes Benz S500 Grille 27 February 2013

    Think of your Mercedes Benz S500 grille as your very own nose. You'd want to keep it looking good, right? Well, your grille is your ride's nose. Keep it in tip-top shape with our maintenance tips below:


    Clean your grille regularly.

    If you don't pay attention to the dirt, dust, mud, and other forms of grime on your Mercedes Benz S500 grille, they can buildup and become more difficult to get rid of over time. That's the very reason why cleaning your grille regularly is strongly advised. All it takes is some dish soap, water, a cloth or a rag, and a bit of your time, anyway. You certainly wouldn't want to make your cleaning job harder by not doing it in a timely manner.


    Hopefully, you'll make it a habit to clean your Mercedes Benz S500 grille. If you only planned to do that just now after hard-to-remove streaks and stains have settled on your grille, don't worry. You can still get rid of those, although mere soap and water won't do much good against them. In this case, you'll need the help of cleaning agents. The said cleaning agents come in many forms-they can be the branded cleaning solutions that are sold in most automotive parts stores or common household items such as distilled vinegar. Going for the latter is a good idea since you most likely have it in your cupboard, which means you won't have to spend extra. Mix the distilled vinegar with warm water then dip a clean piece of cloth/rag in the resulting solution. Wipe your grille with the cloth/rag thoroughly. That should be enough to get rid of even the toughest stains and streaks.


    Polish, polish, polish!

    Polishing your Mercedes Benz S500 grille after cleaning is most definitely a good idea. After all, polishing isn't hard work, and the payoff is totally worth it. By doing this on a regular basis, you'll be able to preserve the shine of your grille for years and years to come.


    Start the process by applying a suitable amount of polishing solution on a clean cloth/rag. Use that to wipe your Mercedes Benz S500 grille. Make sure to cover all areas and continue until you get the desired shine.
