Frequently Asked Questions
Just as the climate in Brisbane or Perth may be vastly different to that of Melbourne or Hobart, they way an air conditioner is serviced can also vary. In most states, a mechanic must be licensed or specially trained to carry out an aircon re-gas or service. Repco Authorised Service workshops operate in different states and therefore under different legislation for repair methods and mechanic licensing. This means that an air conditioner re-gas in Adelaide may different to a re-gas in Sydney. Added to this, different cars may also have specific service requirements that are unique to the make of car or the particular model. Your local Repco Authorised Car Service mechanic will happily explain what is involved for your particular car. Common Items that may be involved in a car air conditioner service or regas; * Air vent temperature check * Reclaiming, recycling or replacement of operating gas * Replacement or check of receiver drier / filter * Adjustment of drive belts and pulleys * Check operation of valves and thermostats * Leak test of system lines and components * Inspection of hoses and components * Cleaning condenser fins * Deodorize and sanitize systemWhy Is Regular Car Servicing Important?
Vehicle servicing is carried out to ensure that your car operates reliably and efficiently and is maintained to maximise the life span of the vehicle. Avoiding any service for your car leads to undue stress on vehicle components which can in turn lead to expensive and inconvenient breakdowns. A mechanical failure on the open road can have devastating consequences, especially if a critical part of the braking, steering or suspension is involved. Regular servicing of your vehicle identifies potentially dangerous wear on the vital steering and braking components in your car, preventing failures and protecting you and your family.How Does Alcohol Effect Your Driving?
You don't have to be drunk to be affected by alcohol. No one drives as well as usual after drinking alcohol, even though some people may look and act as though they are unaffected. Alcohol is a depressant drug that affects most areas of the brain. Alcohol impacts the human body in a number of ways... * Slows brain functions so that you can't respond to situations, make decisions or react quickly. * Reduces your ability to judge how fast you are moving or your distance from other cars, people or objects. * Gives you false confidence - you may take greater risks because you think your driving is better than it really is. * Makes it harder to do more than one thing at a time * Makes you feel sleepy or fatigued. You cannot compensate for the effects of alcohol on your brain.House Bricks Or Ramps?
Don't use house bricks to support a car. They can crumble under the car's weight. Always use approved, quality axle stands or drive-up ramps. It is also important to make sure that you are working on a flat area, not a slope and chock the wheels as required to ensure the car is stable. It is also recommended that you dont work alone, just in case you need help should something go wrong.What Factors Impact On Braking?
