Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Washing the vehicle with a high-pressure cleaner

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer when cleaning your vehicle using a high-pressure cleaner. This applies in particular to the pressure and the spraying distance  .

Maintain sufficient distance from soft materials such as rubber hoses, plastic parts, insulation, as well as to the sensors for the parking distance warning system. The sensors of the parking distance warning system are located in the front and also in the rear bumper  .

Never use concentrated jet nozzles or dirt blasters  .

WARNING

The incorrect use of a high-pressure cleaner can cause visible and invisible long-term damage to tyres and other materials. This can cause accidents and serious injuries.

WARNING

After the car has been washed, the braking effect could set in later than normal and extend the braking distance as the brake discs and brake pads will be wet, or iced up in winter.
