6 Car Repair mistakes you might be doing if you are doing it yourself

Whether it is out of passion, trying to save costs, taking influence from social media DIY videos, but people who do their car repair at home are potentially putting their car and lives in danger.

The most important aspect to repairing or servicing car is to understand that there is a difference in doing minor changes like changing oil or checking tyre pressure at home than repairing a car at home.

Here are six car repair mistakes that occur when you repair car at home.

  1. Repairing Car AC

Although it might not seem too difficult to replace the alternator or repairing a pipe, car AC repair service nowadays heavily rely on electronics, and you need to have the proper tools and experience to make the necessary fixes. An issue in replacing a part incorrectly might result in the A/C not working properly (unbearable during summer) but might result in ruining other parts in your A/C system.

Instead of saving time or money, you will end up spending more time and money. In contrast, if you bring your car at a professional workshop like zDegree, then our experienced mechanics make sure that your Car AC service is handled properly.

2. Replacing Timing Belt

One of the main reasons that people try to replace timing belt themselves is that it has to be changed every 50,000 kilometers. While the labor charge for replacing it might be high, timing belt is an important component of your engine. Replacing a timing belt is a task for trained mechanics where they disassemble car engine, hence, if you attempt to replace a timing belt and disassemble an engine on your own, it will double your cost if it is not fixed accurately.

3. Repairing Car Brakes

Brakes are the most essential and critical auto part, yet if changed or installed incorrectly, can be incredibly dangerous. At first, brakes might appear as a simple looking part that can be fixed easily but it requires more than just replacing brake pads. From brake discs to calipers, wheel bearing, and adjusting brake fluid are just some other things that need to work in tangent with your brake pads. If not adjusted correctly, then it will not work correctly which could lead to potentially disastrous results. Any uncharacteristic behavior that a driver feels from the brakes is one of the top reason for major road accidents.

Our trained mechanics at zDegree make sure to adjust your car by doing brake pad replacement in a professional way by providing both safety of your car as well as convenience for your driving style.
