COVID-19 Coronavirus Message Updated: 17th September
Mail Order Customers:
  *
Our carrier DHL is operating near normally across the world. Allow an extra day for delivery (2 days for Australia, 6 days for New Zealand), just in case. However, regular international postal services can have additional delays, and are not recommended for anything required within 6 weeks.
  * For the UK only, Royal Mail are delivering the vast majority of orders on time according to our data, but is experiencing higher levels of staff absences, so there may some local delays.
  * We will be working normally and have a large warehouse full of parts that will help keep your car on the road. However, we are beginning to see supply delays from factory lockdowns around the world.
Workshop Customers:
  *
Following government guidance, we are open as usual. Taking your vehicle to a garage for repairs is a permitted activity (safety) as long as you observe the social distancing rules. We have strict social distancing processes internally and disinfect daily (not least because we have staff in vulnerable groups). In the circumstances, we have had to close our waiting room. Our mechanics wear gloves at all times and we will disinfect your vehicle with our Zaflora sprays on handing back to you. We would respectfully ask you to show our staff the same courtesy. We also have full amount contactless payment systems.
  * MOTs due for renewal from 30th March to 31st July will be extended for six months. However, you are still legally obliged to keep your vehicle in a safe and roadworthy condition, so if you need to use your car in this period, it is still strongly recommended to get one done.

Resetting The Oil Service Light On A Giulietta.

The service light will be reset by the garage who carried out the oil and oil filter change with the aid of an examiner.

:alt

The little oil can light on the right means it's due a service.

:alt

So we have a look and apparently your service coupon has expired!!

:alt

Once the examiner is plugged in and the right page accessed it shows the two service codes that need deleting, DTC P0521 and P0524.

:alt

Next it shows us how many recorded oil changes the vehicle has had (x3), the milage when it was last serviced (70849km) and how many kilometers left before it was due an oil change (700km).

:alt

If the technician had held the examiner straight you could now see that the vehicle has just had its fourth oil change, is showing the current milage (105202km) and how many more kilometers to the next service.

All good to go!
