How a General Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

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.

Popular services linked to a General Inspection:

Wheel Alignment

Having your wheels aligned correctly is an important part of keeping your vehicle performing optimally. Properly aligned wheels ensure your car handles properly, and therefore increases the life of your tyres. Ever felt that irritating symptom of your car constantly pulling to one side? That’s the cause of misaligned wheels.

Window Tint Removal

The act of separating the window tints from the inside of the glass in your vehicle and leaving a surface that will provide good bonding for new tints to be fitted.

Indicator Bulb Replacement

Letting everyone else know that you’re turning is always a good idea. To do this, car makers install indicators on your car. They’re such a good idea that the New Zealand Government made it a law that you have to have them and if they aren’t working then the Police can fine you. These small orange lights can be the difference between having an accident or not.

Headlight Switch Replacement

Your headlights are responsible for seeing in poor conditions, as well as other motorists seeing you. They’re required for a warrant of fitness and you don’t really want them playing up. The headlight switch is what completes the circuit and if it stops working, you’ll be in deep trouble when the night comes.
