Ford Explorer: Vehicle Care / Waxing

Ford Explorer 2020-2022 Owners Manual / Vehicle Care / Waxing

Regular waxing is necessary to protect your car's paint from the elements. We recommend that you wash and wax the painted surface once or twice a year.

When washing and waxing, park your vehicle in a shaded area out of direct sunlight. Always wash your vehicle before applying wax.

  • Use a quality wax that does not contain abrasives.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to apply and remove the wax.
  • Apply a small amount of wax in a back-and-forth motion, not in circles.
  • Do not allow wax to come in contact with any non-body (low-gloss black) colored trim. The wax will discolor or stain the parts over time.
    • Roof racks.
    • Bumpers.
    • Grained door handles.
    • Side moldings.
    • Mirror housings.
    • Windshield cowl area.
  • Do not apply wax to glass areas.
  • After waxing, your car's paint should feel smooth, and be free of streaks and smudges.
