When does it make sense to do your own repair work on your vehicle and when should you take it to the professionals at a dealership or service garage? It’s true you can save money on some repairs by doing it yourself, but there is more to consider than just the cost of the parts.

The questions should help you decide which repairs you can do and which repairs should be left to the professionals.

The suppliers do not offer any guaranty on the second hand spares for the automobiles.

Once the belt is in place double check to ensure that it is securely in place around all of the pulleys. Gently release pressure on the tensioner, moving it back into place.
