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.

This is the engine management warning light, the fault is usually with a sensor but it can be with the out put to coils or a fault with the electronic control unit itself but this is rare.

If the key code light stays on there is a fault with the immobiliser system or the car doesn't recognise the key and the car will not start.

Oil pressure light, if this comes on turn the car off immediately and do NOT drive. The most common problem is a severe lack of oil so please check the level first. Max to min on the dipstick is 1 Litre but if the oil light comes on you will almost certainly need to put in around 2.5-3 Litres. Put the oil in at about a litre at a time and check on the dipstick until you get the level correct.
