COVID-19 Lockdown: How to Keep your Motor Roadworthy

Lockdown Car Body Repairs High Wycombe

If you are uncertain of the rules surrounding using your car during this period or worried about how to keep your motor roadworthy, Auto Medics are here to clarify.

You should only drive your car for the reasons specified by the Government, these instances are limited to:

  • Unavoidable travel to and from your workplace
  • Shopping for essentials
  • Medical purposes

COVID-19 Lockdown

This means that our cars could be left unused for an indefinite period of time, which can cause problems when it comes to needing to drive again. In order to keep your car roadworthy for essential trips the following tips should help you through lockdown:

  • Maintain your car battery:
    • Start it up once a week and let it run for approximately 15 minutes
    • This will help increase the battery’s charge as well as circulate oil and fuel around the engine.
    • Avoid turning your car on and off quickly as this can cause issues for the starter motor.
    • Never leave your car running unattended.
  • Maintain the brakes of your car
    • Left for a long period brake discs can start to corrode eventually leading to them seizing up and requiring the attention of a mechanic.
    • To avoid this roll your car back and forth a few metres now and again.
    • This will also help prevent your wheels developing flat spots and your hand brake from sticking.

If your car MOT is due during lockdown, you should also be aware that from 30 March 2020 a 6 month extension period has been granted.

When you next need to drive your car, if it’s been a while since you last did so be sure to check the following to ensure your car is safe and roadworthy:

  • Fluid levels including oil, engine coolant, brake fluid and screen wash.
  • Gently try your brakes when setting off
  • Check lights are all working
  • Check tyres have required tread and are appropriately inflated.

First Class Diamond Cutting Service High Wycombe

diamond cutting service high wycombeAuto Medics in High Wycombe offer a diamond cutting service. Diamond cutting is a very skilled service using a specialist lathe. Many cars these days come with diamond cut alloys. You can identify diamond cut wheels by the very fine lines upon close inspection and the shiny appearance.

Diamond Cut Alloy Refurbishment High Wycombe

There aren’t many body shops in High Wycombe who can boast the technical skills or specialist equipment we have when it comes to diamond cut alloy wheel refurbishment, nor do they have the exceptional reviews and customer service we offer. Using our specialist diamond tipped lathe we can create a high quality shiny finish (similar to that of the back of a CD), with a fast turnaround time too.

Diamond cutting requires a thin layer of alloy to be removed from the wheel using the lathe. This can only be carried out a couple of times as eventually too much of the alloy would be removed. Diamond cut wheels can be susceptible corrosion, at Auto Medics we always ensure these are lacquered to prevent corrosion for as long as possible.

Check out our Facebook page for example of our first class diamond cutting service in High Wycombe.
