Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Waxing and polishing the vehicle

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Waxing

Waxing protects the paintwork. You will need to wax the vehicle with a good hard wax at the latest when the water does not clearly form small drops and run off the paintwork when it is clean.

Even if a wax solution is used regularly in the car wash, Volkswagen recommends protecting the paint with a coat of hard wax at least twice a year.

Polishing

Polishing is only necessary if the paint has lost its shine, and the gloss cannot be brought back by applying wax.

The car must be waxed after polishing if the polish used does not contain wax compounds to seal the paint.

NOTICE

  • In order to avoid damage, matt-finish parts, plastic parts, headlight lenses and the tail lights may not be treated with polish or hard wax.
  • Do not polish your vehicle in a sandy or dusty environment or when the vehicle is dirty.
