It can easily be tackled by sealing the problem areas with a V-ribbed belt and sealant. It is advisable to seal the nozzles of the windshield washer as well so that water does not get under the hood when it is raining heavily. Otherwise, water will get inside the candle wells.

2. Fighting mud

After you buy a Renault Duster, do not forget to install seals on the hood cover to avoid the dirt that enters the engine compartment. In addition to the design’s drawbacks, there are also often thresholds that are not covered by doors. Because of this design, when landing, your pants are likely to get dirty.

In Renault Duster maintenance service, the upholstery charges are no joke. They always charge you quite an amount. But this can be easily done by a Diy Kit (vinyl and leather repair kit) from any auto store.

Then mix the heat-set filler that matches the color of your fabric and apply it to the tear.

During winters, the water that seeps in through the window can create drag which might damage regulator cables, and repairing it can be expensive. To avoid this issue, lubricate the window tracks with a dry Teflon spray lubricant. Lower the window and squirt the spray directly into the front and rear window rails. Apply enough lubricant to drip all over the rail. Then operate the window through several opening and closing cycles to distribute the lubricant over the entire rail. Use glass detergent and a paper towel to remove any splashes that may get on the glass.
