Our qualified mechanic will look to complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle using the information you have provided via the My Auto Shop platform. To complete this the mechanic will usually start by plugging into your OBDII port and completing a complete diagnostic scan. This will highlight any error or warning codes your vehicle has and will provide the mechanic with information they. need to fix your problem.

Before completing any repairs the mechanic will complete a quote and look for your approval.

When you’re reversing out of your driveway, car park or parallel parking in general, it’s good to know what you’re doing. Better yet, it’s good for everyone else to have a clue too! Reversing lights let the world know that you’re having a go.

Fog Light Replacement

In New Zealand, we have plenty of hills, valleys and cool mornings. These are perfect conditions for fog and you need to see where you're going. Fog lights protect you and the drivers around you. There’s no such thing as too much visibility, rather than get into an early morning fender-bender, turn your fog lights on and be safer on the road.

Tyre Replacement

When you purchase new tyres, a mechanic will always need to fit them to the wheel.

Number Plate Bulb Replacement

To drive your car on New Zealand roads, you must display a licence plate. Your licence plate must be clear and readable, when it gets dark this can be an issue. That’s where your number plate light comes in.
