Long-term parking

Asked by Christine Burton

WHAT do I need to do to my 2006 Ford Fiesta when I put it into storage for six months or more? I don't have anyone to start it for me during this time, so would appreciate some information on what preparation I should do?

CONNECT a trickle charger to the battery, one that will maintain the battery charge. If you can't you will probably have to charge the battery when you get home. Other than that, I would pump up the tyres a few psi above the recommended pressure, and cover the car to protect the paint from dust and other things that might land on it.
