  4. PRECAUTION


    1. Water Repellent Coated Glass


      1. The effect of the water repellent coating lasts only for a limited duration. To make the water repellent coating last longer, observe the following precautions:


        • If the front door glass is dirty, clean it with a soft and wet cloth as soon as possible.

        • Do not use detergent containing an abrasive compound or wax to clean the front door glass.

        • If dirt is on the glass, do not attempt to clean it with an automatic car-wash or by opening and closing the front door glass repeatedly.

        • Do not attempt to scrape off ice built up on the front door glass using a metal scraper or similar tool.
