Trunk does not lock or open

Simply leave as many details about the issue as you can and we will contact local MTA approved mechanics that are qualified to fix the underlying issue. We'll email you quotes for an inspection within 2 working days, and where possible provide an indication as to the likely underlying issue(s) and cost to fix. You can book directly on the My Auto Shop platform in minutes.

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:

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.

Side Window Replacement

The side windows in your car roll down in summer to let some fresh air in, keep the sun's rays out and stop rain coming in. If one of them breaks, you’ll need to replace it.

Dome Light Bulb Replacement

There’s nothing worse than getting in your car at night and being unable to see anything. Your interior lights are something that you take for granted and can be a real pain when they fail. You don’t want to lose your phone down the side of the seat and have to wait till morning to find it again. So when your dome lights start to falter or give up the ghost completely, you should get them replaced. It’s not a big job so when it comes time to replace them, there’s no need to freak out.

Headlight Bulb Replacement

The headlights are a critically important party of your car and something that should always be in perfect working condition. Unless you’re good at driving by feel alone, your headlights are what allows you to drive safely at night.
