Mitsubishi Outlander: For cold and snow weather - Maintenance - Mitsubishi Outlander Owner's ManualMitsubishi Outlander: For cold and snow weather

Ventilation slots

The ventilation slots in front of the windscreen should be brushed clear after heavy snowfall so that the operation of the heating and ventilation systems will not be impaired.

Weatherstripping

To prevent freezing of the weatherstripping on the doors, bonnet, etc., they should be treated with silicone grease.

Additional equipment

It is a good idea to carry a shovel or a short-handled spade in the vehicle during the winter so that you can clear away snow if you get stranded. A small hand-brush for sweeping snow off the vehicle and a plastic scraper for the windscreen and rear window are also useful.
