Need to get the stickers you once put on your car removed? Bought a used car and it's got a ton of no-so-necessarily wacky stickers pasted on it? These could be anything, from showing support for a political party or candidate, to highly inappropriate graphical ones.

Putting stickers on is very easy, the challenging part is the removal. At Kelly Risk Free, we have the right advice for you and it will help you to remove them easily without leaving any stains.

Things You Will Need

  • Hot air dryer
  • Blade or a sharp cutter
  • Clean cloths and towels
  • a card (preferably plastic)
  • cleaning spray and solution (for glass)
  • Tree sap Spray for removal
  • Detailing quick spray

Steps to Follow

  1. First, clean the surrounding of the sticker area with a cleaning solution so that all the dirt and debris comes out. Removal of a sticker is best done when you wash the car
  2. Connect the hot air dryer and aim it at the sticker. Increase the heating speed to the maximum and hold it a few inches away from the sticker. Make sure that you don't point the dryer directly at the sticker.
  3. Aim the hot air at the sticker area for some time, and then move the dryer around the sticker. This helps to loosen the edges and heat melts the sticky glue that holds the sticker in place. Once the sticker is hot enough, grab hold of the plastic card.
  4. With the plastic card, gently scrape the sides of the sticker, starting from the edges. To speed up the process, you can also use your fingers to lift the edges. Once the sticker is hot as much as necessary, then removing the sticker with the card won't be a problem. If it doesn't come off, then heat it a bit more with the hot air dryer.
  5. If the sticker still doesn't come out, then you can use the sharp cutter or the blade to remove the sticker. Although, this process can be risky, if you aren't careful, then you can damage the paint of the car and scratches will appear.
  6. Once you have removed the sticker, spray some of the tree sap spray on the area. Use a clean cloth or a towel to wipe away the remaining bits of the sticker. When every bit comes off, use some polish and wipe the area.

These basic steps will help you to remove any kind of sticker from the shiny surface of your car. For the best cars like Nissan, Chrysler, Dodge, Mitsubishi, and GMC, feel free to visit our outlets in Bethlehem and Allentown.

Cars are an important investment for the large majority of us, unless you're a millionaire of course. However, as much as you try to keep them new and in an excellent condition, you"d eventually have to conduct proper maintenance.

Headlights are very important because they keep the view bright for drivers at night driving times. Regularly cleaning them and maintaining them not only makes the car look newer, but it also allows you to drive with unobstructed views like fog, haze, and smear.

So how can you clean the headlights like a pro? At Kelly Risk Free, we have the perfect steps and tricks for you. Here's a quick peek at some of the basics.

Things You Will Need

The first step is to get all the essential things that you will need to clean the light. These include the:

  • Headlight kit for restoration
  • Solution or spray for washing the car
  • Tape
  • Cloth and towel for drying
  • Grease
  • Drill (optional)

Step #1 Wipe the Area of the Headlight

Once you have all the items in place, the next step is to, clean the area of the headlights with water, so that all the debris and dirt can come off. You can use a good quality cleaning spray or solution for this step.

Step #2 Apply Tape

Once you have cleaned the area take the tape, and apply it on the surrounding of the headlight area. This prevents the surrounding paint from chipping off while you clean the lights. In some of the kits, you will find a wax. That works as a good substitute of the tape. Just apply a fine coat and after cleaning the headlights, you can wipe it off with a clean cloth.

Step #5 Use the Sealer Protector

After you are content with the improved and polished look of the headlights, the final step is to use a small amount of the sealer protector. Apply this on a clean towel, rub the surface of the glass, and wipe out any wax that you may have applied prior to cleaning. Lastly, remove the tape.

Once a person hits the legal age of driving, they just can't resist parading the fact and driving all around town. Most parents overlook the fact that it is necessary to educate the young people before handing over the car keys. It is essential that every individual learn about the basics of a car before they sit behind the wheels. Car education is the first step to safety.

As a newbie, you won't have a clue at all! We, Kelly Risk Free are here to help. We have been dealing with cars like Nissan, GMC, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Dodge, and Jeeps for many years now. To guide the young generation, we have the best tips. Let's take a look.

Check the Car

The basic step is to check the fluids of the car. Lift the engine well and check the engine oil. Also, check the power steering, brake fluids, transmission, water levels, wipers, and coolants of the car. If you still aren't sure about the car, then you can call an expert technician to get them checked for you.

Check all Belts and Hoses

This is necessary to ensure that the hoses don't have cracks. In case they do, there is significant risk of engine oil leaking. Also, check the belts properly. If they have brittle and lose grips, then that's a clear sign of the wear and tear. Get them changed as soon as you can.

Examine the Exhausts

This step is to detect any leaks, broken or damaged supports. If you hear any unusual sound in the car, then it means that the exhaust is having some problems and it is advisable that you take the car to the expert technician right away. If you end up driving the car with this exhaust problem, then the car might just break down in the middle of nowhere.

Check the Brakes and Tires

As a beginner, you must check the brakes and the tires properly. If the brakes don't work well or lack brake fluids, then the chances of a collision with the vehicle ahead increase. Make sure that you call an expert or visit them so that they check the alignment of the wheels. Also, ensure that the tires have the right amount of air and pressure. A low air pressure can lead to a flat tire in no time, as a newbie driver, it can be a hassle to fix a flat.

Inspect the Headlights and Wiper

Before hitting the road at dusk, check whether the headlights are working properly or not. After all, at night you have to ensure that other vehicles see you and you see them. Inspect all the lights of the interior and check if the wipers are working well.

There are numerous more education tips for youngsters, however, if you follow these, then you will be able to drive safe and like a pro. Visit us, the best car dealers in town, Kelly Risk Free for the best cars. We operate in cities like, Allentown, Easton, Emmaus, and Bethlehem.

Driving on a rainy day or a snowy day can be quite an ordeal - the risk of one losing control of the vehicle on the icy surface is significant. In most cases, skids occur because of driver person driving in a hurry and applying the brakes abruptly. This causes the vehicle to skid; you will end up losing control, and the risk of you meeting a mishap becomes inevitable.

If you want to avoid skidding, then the best option for you is to drive at a slow and consistent speed. Try to keep the vehicle under your control and reduce the chances of colliding in to the car ahead. However, if you end up in a situation where your vehicle skids, then don't panic. We at Kelly Risk Free are experienced car dealers of any used Nissan, Buick, GMC, Mitsubishi, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram models. We have all the right tips that you can use while skidding and you will find them below.

Tip #1 Don't Panic! Steer While Skidding

Firstly, when your vehicle skids, don't panic! Try to control your nerves, remove your foot from the accelerator, and slowly steer the car in the direction that you want to go. Once you follow this tip, you will be able to bring the car back in the right line and get control over it again.

Tip #2 Turn off the Cruise Control

When you hit the road, avoid driving with the cruise control turned on. If you leave it turned on when driving and meet a skid, then your wheels can end up racing more rapidly when skidding. This will instead cause your car to propel further in the wet road; you can lose control and end up driving in the wrong direction.

Tip #3 Car Ahead And It's Tracks

Another way of avoiding skids is by following the tracks of the car ahead of you. This helps to lessen the amount of ice or water between the tires and the ground. Therefore, when your car skids, you can easily put your foot on the brakes and the car will slow down.

Tip #4 Attempt a Drive Through

If you see a puddle, then it is likely that the water must be deeper than the level of your vehicle doors. In such puddles, you can attempt to drive right through it. However, when you drive through it, try, and slow down so that the car won't skid. Try to keep an eye on the flow and level of the water. In case the water level is high, then just divert and go for a different and safer route.

These are just a few tips that can save you in a ôskidding situation. If you want more tips that are helpful then be sure that at Kelly Risk Free we have ample of them. So for the best deals and durable cars in town, feel free to visit us at our outlets in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, and Emmaus.
