  • Hopefully these tips are helpful. The weather has been horrible here with snow ever couple of days which has put a hamper on filming my regular How-To videos. Hopefully the snow melts soon! I have some awesome videos coming!!!

  • Rain-X Treated windows are easier to clear snow and Ice off of. Its something i noticed a few years ago and it works. I always treat the windows late Fall for Winter. For me, most of the time i have time to warm the car up, but ive scraped and gone with a lot less effort on treated windows.

  • I live in germany and generally speaking, we dont get too much snow in the south. last year we moved to a hilly area tho, temperatures are considerably lower, there´s way more snow, etc. I have never understood just how convenient the winter-package offered for cars is, until this year. I have a Seat Mii, an Eco-box based on a VW Up, the winterpack cost, whoever got the car new, some decent extra money so it seemed excessive but Frozen mirrors? heated. Cold butt? heated. Engine cold? someone fit a coolant preheat in it. yes really, in a small ecobox. its just insanely convenient.

  • Purchase a small plastic ice scraper without a brush for $2-3 or on clearance in the spring for like $1 or less when your wheel wells get packed with snow use it to clear it from your wheel liners trying to avoid your painted bumper covers, body or flares this will also prevent excess water in your garage if you have one available which can refreeze after melting do you rears and for your front wheels turn start your car and turn your steering wheel lock to lock get the front of one side and the rear of the other fender and switch wheel direction. if your car has unpainted textured bumper covers like 93-04 Grand Cherokee's give it a swift kick with your boots and a-lot of snow will drop.

  • Hey ChrisFix! I just wanted to let you know that your videos inspired me to fix up my 1997 Ford Mustang! Just got done installing new spark plugs, spark plug wires, a new coil pack, and I even wired some exterior LED lights with a switch under my hood to give me extra light to work on my stang into the night. I am only 20 years old and have never known these skills before watching your videos. It is a great feeling to learn from you and then to put what you teach into practice. Starting up my mustang after installation was an amazing feeling! Thanks!

  • The only thing I can think of to add is really only helpful if you don't have a leaf blower. I start the car first. Then I start removing snow at the back of the car. Often, especially with thick, wet snow, the hood will be warm by the time I get there and makes that part of the car a bit easier to clear. Oh! And never use a hammer to break up ice on a windshield.

  • I am not sure how I would write to you about something I’d really like if you could cover... maybe just leaving this comment is enough. When I first got my truck about three years ago it had heavy water spots on the glass and I used 0000 steel wool to remove the water spots but in my inexperience with vehicles I might have done it too long or too rough and it left swirl scratches all over the windows. I’ve tried waxing the windows and rubbing compound mixed with fast orange hand cleaner with pumice from a video I found on LTclub and a DA polisher and didn’t work. If you have a way to fix these steel wool scratches I’d really like the video! Appreciate what you do it’s all awesome tutorials and great video editing! Thanks ChrisFix!

  • If I have a lot of snow on the truck or car, I grab a long-handled broom with very soft bristles and the snow comes off very quickly. And not to worry cuz I've been doing this for years and have never ever found one tiny scratch on the paint or molding. This is the best trick for me removing snow if you have to be somewhere and time is short. The broom is about 2 feet wide so you can just imagine how fast and how much snow can be removed in just one swipe. Use a back and forth method (push to remove snow away. reposition broom then pull snow towards you) Boom, you're done.
