Ok, so today's Car DIY is very very specific to the car (my car, to be precise!) but hopefully it will be helpful to some people, as a VW Polo 9N is not THAT uncommon.
Anyone who knows us at all knows that our favourite thing, besides working on cool cars, is getting out on our longboards- which we do at every opportunity.
Another Car DIY tutorial video, this time we're showing you how to top up the screen wash on our (very dirty!) VW T25. This one is really simple, it's just knowing where to look for the bottle. As always, a step by step guide is included below.
As an car enthusiast I love making my Car DIY posts for all you people who want to be more involved with and knowledgeable about cars- but I realise at some point you'll probably need expert help.
Picture the scene: The sun is shining and you're ready to cruise. But wait, what's that smell?!
It may well be the smell of your beloved classic car going up in flames for want of a little maintenance before hitting the road. Yikes!
In this post I'll explain why a poorly maintained car is basically a death trap and what you need to be doing about it.
Here's my first ever Car DIY video tutorial showing you how to change the engine oil and filter on your car. You'll also find my usual written instructions below too.
It's an old cliche that as a country we're very bad at negotiating, maybe that's why we're "a nation of shopkeepers"? (True story: my friend once tried to haggle the price of a fridge for me in Currys. The shop assistant told him she'd be right back and then literally went and stood awkwardly down a different aisle to avoid him. Harsh!) But running a business you quickly realise that practically everything IS negotiable and if you don't make the move you could be losing out.
Here's another of my Car DIY tutorials where I explain how to do some simple stuff on your car. Last time we were changing a flat tyre like a boss. Today we'll be trying something a bit more delicate that will require some patience (but still practically anyone can do)- replacing a car headlight bulb.
