General Service

Thought it might be a good idea to try a service without a garage :shock:
Does anyone have a list of what to change & guidance on how to do it?

Gareth, this could be a really good feature of the site if we can give people instructions & help to people wanting to service their own cars, save a few hundred 's

Gear oil
Gasket

Imagine you could probably do all that yourself (with some guidance) for just over 100?

Its easy enough TZ, but is your car under any warrenty? As youve not long had it I guess there must be some kind of warrenty, which could possibly be made void if the books not stamped up!

It was the Scoob that got me into servicing my own car Trip

I had before the Impreza never really looked under the bonnet of a car let along change things etc. If I an help in any way or give you some pointers on servicing your own motor then please just let me know - you are quite correct though its not that difficult

think we would all love to do the service ourselves, it would be a self satisfaction & a bigger bond to our cars. we wouldn't dive in with a sledge hammer :shock:

I always service the scoob myself.
it the only way. u save so much money.

I have also changed a few parts on my scoob since ive hat it, wouldn't like 2 think how much it would of cost me to get it done in a garage.
You also end up learning so much about ur car, with added job satisfaction.
