Default Re: Drove my car through Salt water. Now what?

Basically a good wash to remove all the salt water. Dry it properly after that. Wherever salt water can enter a pressure wash should get in as well. Salt water does corrode faster than regular water so good wash and then drying is key

I may be wrong. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Dry salt does not have much detrimental effect on metal. And will the salt remain stuck to the metal once dried ? I don't think so. Indian roads don't allow that to happen. It will get shaken off the metal surface. Besides manufacturers apply anti corrosion coating to the base metal and more on the under body.
