Get Your Vehicle Ready For Winter Service

Vehicle Service Tips for St. Louis Winters

With every new season in St. Louis MO, there are certain types of maintenance that are essential to keeping your vehicle operating in peak condition. Winter is the harshest of them all and requires timely planning to keep you from having a vehicle breakdown during the cold conditions. It’s important to everyone at BMW of West St. Louis that our customers are safe and protecting their investment.

Battery Test and Inspection

A car battery should remain clean and free from acid corrosion. The buildup of acid corrosion occurs over time, especially during winter. In addition to inspecting your battery, our highly qualified service experts conduct a computerized battery test to assess whether the battery is capable of holding a charge. A weak battery is a precursor for eventually having a bad cell if a full charge isn’t regularly maintained.

Tire Inspection

Maintaining good tires keeps you and your family safe while on the road, but extra planning should be taken during winter to avoid having tires that are below acceptable tread levels for getting through severe weather conditions. The lowest tread that a tire should have is 2/32 inches, but that is not an ideal tread level for winter. Tires should also be rotated appropriately to have the best traction on the drivetrain during winter.

Brake Inspection

Typically, the brake system gives an owner explicit warning signs when there is a problem, such as squeaking, grinding or a low brake pedal. Winter is an ideal opportunity to get ahead of any potential problem by being proactive with a brake inspection. A brake inspection will ensure that the brake pads are in good enough condition to last throughout the winter. All brake repairs are completed using Genuine OEM BMW parts.

Wiper Blade Inspection

Wiper blades are especially vulnerable in harsh winter conditions. It is not unusual for wiper blades to completely fall apart because of the frigid temperatures. A wiper blade inspection will ensure there is windshield visibility when necessary. Additionally, it’s an ideal time to perform a windshield crack and chip inspection. One small crack or chip can eventually spread and require a substantial windshield repair or even a costly replacement. Windshield washer fluid should also be changed to a winter blend for maximum protection.

Change Antifreeze or Coolant

Replacing the antifreeze or coolant is a vital part of your winter preventive maintenance. Beginning winter with fresh antifreeze or coolant gives you an added advantage against the cold temperature and preventing an engine from overheating. Be sure to have our technician perform an HVAC inspection and check the heater, defrost, seat warmers and steering wheel warmers to ensure they’re in optimal condition for winter too.
