FORD GRAN TORINO - 13/11/2019

We love having classic cars in our workshop.  This Ford Gran Torino was booked in for an Air Conditioning service.  It was found to have a faulty compressor,  so our  guys fit a new one and carried out a complete A/C service and regas.   This amazing car is now ready for weekend summer trips with the comfort of working air conditioning.  


Today in the workshop we had some super cool cars.  

1   1969 Ford Mustang was in for some wiring repairs

2    2012 Maserati had a new windown switch fitted

3    1991 Jaguar in with electrical faults

Our technicians are experienced with all electrical faults and repairs on classic and luxury cars.


This week we have had many cars in for Air conditioning services and regas.  Summer is about to hit and there is nothing worse than having no car air conditioning or hot air blowing in your face.  Most people assume that if the AC is working then there is no need to have it serviced.  However, this can lead to major expenses down the track. Our technicians are skilled at diagnosing problems with your car's AC system and can let you know if it simply requires a regas or something else is going on.  Most large AC jobs can be done on the same day, depending on availability of parts.  A standard regas involves recovering the old gas, evacuating the system, replenishing the oil, adding dye for future testing and regassing with R134A.  A regas can usually be carried out within an hour or two. 

AC services are recommended every 12 months because over time you may lose gas through various leaks which can force small amounts of oil out of the system.  This can leave your compressor to run dry of oil, whilst still getting cold.  This can then result in a seized compressor.  Regular services ensure your car's AC system is running effectively, as well as keeping you cool throughout the hot months.


The front passenger door and sliding door in this iload were not locking and unlocking.  Our technician diagnosed faulty door actuators.  New actuators were supplied and fit.  Both doors are locking once again.

Caravan auto electrics - 26/09/19

Our customer came in this week with discharged batteries in his caravan which was caused by his 12V fridge being connected directly to his house batteries. We recommended updating his electrical system with a 40amp Enerdrive DCDC system, with a 240V Enerdrive battery charger. He was also needing an Anderson and trailer plug. Our customer can now be confident going off grid caravanning.

BMW X3 Alternator - 29/08/19

Today we had this BMW X3 towed into the workshop by RACQ.  We diagnosed a faulty alternator.  The challenge was getting the alternator out as it was in a tricky location.  But happy to report our guys were successful in removing it and it was replaced with the new alternator.  

Nissan Pathfinder - 25/07/19

Today we had this Nissan Pathfinder in the workshop. We diagnosed a seized AC compressor which was caused by a blockage in the condenser. Therefore, we had to replace the compressor, the condenser, tx valve, receiver drier and cabin filter. We also had to flush the AC system to clean it of its contamination from the metal fillings of the compressor. Finished with a AC service and regas just in time for the hot weather.

Our team converted this 1999 Jayco Hawk Outback to a full off grid system. We installed 2 x 150 ah gel batteries, a 40 ah Enerdrive DCDC charger and a 200w solar panel. Plus additional wall chargers, Usb plugs and Anderson Plug connections. All set for some great road trips with all the comforts of being at home.
