Clutch Repairs

The clutch in your car endures a huge load as every time you use it, whatever power your engine is producing is transmitted through the gearbox and diff to change the inertia of over a tonne of the car. Obviously, the biggest load is applied as you get your car to move off from a stationary position.

Brake Repairs

Viva Auto Repairs are a brake repair centre that will look after all your braking needs. From replacing brake pads and linings to a full hydraulic system overhaul or handbrake repairs and adjustment. Most late model vehicles are fitted with electrically operated hand brakes and these require special tools to retract the rear calliper before fitting the new brakes.

These days with ABS, anti-skid and traction control technology, up to date knowledge and experience is essential to maintaining the braking system on modern cars, making it not only very hard, but extremely dangerous for the home “mechanic” to successfully to get the job done correctly. We can machine your disc rotors and/or drums and fit the correct grade of brake pad to suit your driving situation. Maybe you do a lot of towing or stop-start city driving where a heavy-duty pad may be better suited.

If you drive hard through the hills, a performance or even a road/trackpad might be the go, matched to some slotted or cross drilled rotors. If you drive a classic or older car that needs attention to the hydraulic cylinders we can supply stainless steel re-sleeved cylinders that should last the life of the vehicle, especially with regular brake fluid changes every 2 years.

Get your brakes repaired here and you can be confident that they will be there when you really need them.

Auto Air Conditioning

Auto air conditioning is a comfort that most of us now feel is a necessity as we grow used to more creature comforts as we travel. Due to the various sizes and the amount of glass surface areas automotive air conditioning systems can have a large difference in how cold and how quickly they can cool a vehicle, but generally the air coming out of the vents should be between 6 & 9 degrees centigrade with the fan on low or second speed and the air recirculating within the car. Cooling fresh air from outside the vehicle or using the fan at a higher speed will increase the temperature of the air at the vents so will also increase the time to bring the internal temperature of the cabin down to a comfortable level. One of the problems with using the air on recirculate is that the air does get stale, and it can also pick up more bacteria and usually deposit this on the evaporator core inside the cabin.

At Viva Auto Repairs Adelaide, we are up to date with both equipment and knowledge to allow you to keep your cool while driving.

Suspension Repairs

A vehicle’s suspension and steering systems are critical in making sure that the car handles well and grips the road in all situations. Any worn or broken component will affect the way the car performs and can be extremely dangerous. For this reason, all steering and suspension components need to be tested regularly so that any wear can be detected and rectified early.

Viva Auto Repairs can take care of all your suspension testing and repairs in one location and will do a comprehensive check and report every time we service your car.
