Skoda Mirror Bodge
Skoda Mirror Bodge-After the Lockdown Stories
So, because there have been millions of cars parked up and down the country. Then I have decided to write a few “car condition” stories. Of course after we become busier after the lockdown restrictions. Here at the end of May we are not yet fully staffed. However we are able to cope with the work that we have now coming in for MOT Tests and general car repairs. Including new tyre sales and of course puncture repairs.
Writing my blogs help our customers to understand the large variety of car repair jobs that we have to carry out in any week. Of course many jobs are regular “bread and butter” stuff. But we often get anomalies where our customers have had to do DIY repairs to keep their cars on the road!
Skoda repair job on the mirror
So, our newly promoted garage foreman, Dale Linton has promised me to send in some images that may interest our blog customers. We have all seen the rows of cars parked up as the lockdown was implemented. Consequently going forward a couple of months then I have seen many cars with side damage and the odd flat tyre. So, with little room to get through some of the streets packed out with parked cars! Then some damage will have occurred without the knowledge of the cars owners.
This was the story from the Skoda owner who brought in a badly patched up mirror for us to repair. The guys car was parked up for almost two months. So, not noticing that his drivers side mirror had been damaged and was hanging off! I must confess that this is something that I have had to do myself. Modern cars are now fitted with a spring system.So, if the mirrors crash when driving too close then the mirror just springs back and can be pulled back into place. Importantly, this Skoda did not have such a system and was broke off ?
