How to Clean an Electrical Socket on a Car

Good afternoon. My name is Tom Brinson, a certified auto mechanic in Redding, Pennsylvania. Today we’re going to talk about how to clean an electrical shock and on a car. I already have this turn signal switch taken out of another vehicle, but for demonstration purposes, it’s really not that difficult. The easiest way to do it is staying away from your car when you’re spraying this, put spray a little list on your terminals buttoned back.

Once you get it all or cleaned off there, you can take your cleaner again, just wash it off a little bit. It’s really not that difficult. You don’t want to probably be a good idea to wear a pair of safety glasses. That stuff is not good. If you get in your eyes, I want you to get it all cleaned off there. I’m washed off with a paper towel if you can. If you get a socket, it’s got him on the inside. These small picks will go down inside your terminal and you can pick them off pretty good. Just try not to open them up too much, cause then you’re not going to get good contact and you put it back together. But that’s about all it is to clean on an electrical socket on the car.
