External pollution of protective covers oil and lubricants can lead to premature failure of material of covers therefore it is recommended to wash periodically covers with water with soap.
  1. Examine covers on existence of gaps and cracks, and also the weakened collars. In case of detection of signs of cracks or leak of lubricant the cover has to be replaced.
