MK5 Volkswagen Golf ‘in-house’ play thing!! What is the plan?
Wellington European Blog

3M ago
Over the years we’ve purchased the odd broken car that’s arrived in the shop and treated as a wee project to do when we have down time. Often the cost of repairs can be more than the value of the car, so unless you have some real attachment to the car sometimes its easier just to get out of it and move to the next one. So this was the case with MZM532, stretched timing chain, resulting in 8 bent valves and zero compression. So, WEEU bought the car to save it from the wrecking yard and popped it down the back end of the shop and waited for a quiet day to start some repairs. This picture is befo ..read more

And this is why we service and WOF cars

Here’s is a great pic and a great example as to why cars get inspected like they do. On older cars with brake drums and shoes, the car had a way of telling you there was a problem. the brake pedal travel would get longer as the shoes wore out. The handbrake might not hold like it used too. The pedal may go soft or spongy. In a modern car with disc brakes all around you can virtually have no brake linings left, but still have brakes that perform well, as was the case with the car in the picture below. By design the brakes are continuously adjusting as the pads wear. So they don’t go out of adju ..read more

Timing Chain fun on an Audi Q7. Intense.
Wellington European Blog

Here we have the rear of an Audi Q7 engine. This section requires the removal of the gearbox for access. So ultimately the complete subframe and powertrain needs to be removed. and then there is room to split off the gearbox and all of the associated intake and exhaust plumbing. If you look closely you can see some of the timing tool locking pins are fitted. This job started out as chasing oil leaks and ended in timing chain replacement as some ‘routine maintenance’.

Oil Burning BMW for repair
Wellington European Blog

BMW in for heavy oil consumption. The car was performing fine however the oil usage was high. Tests came back with using about 1Litre of oil per 1000km’s. Thankfully this owner had a mechanical breakdown insurance who came to the rescue and paid for a large portion of the repairs. As it turned out we did 2 of these jobs in August. Both with policy’s through different providers. This one required ‘exhaust’ valve guides and valve stem seals. A reasonably common issue. The work involved removing the cylinder head for inspection and repairs as required. The owner in this case opted to renew the ti ..read more
