Come out to Mercedes-Benz of Hagerstown - see the cars, meet the staff for the Section’s DIY event. If your vehicle needs a little TLC – something you can do on your own – you should put this event in your calendar, register, and come out to take advantage of the chance to work on your car in the comfort of a dealership’s service bays. Change the oil, fix those squeaks... all those little tasks needed to keep your vehicle in good operating condition. Mercedes-Benz of Hagerstown techs will be around. Please Note: the techs are not there to do the work for you, if they do help you, please be sure to tip them. Be sure to bring all tools and consumables (e.g. oil, brake fluid, paper towels, shop rags...) needed to complete your planned work. You may bring your own parts, or purchase them from MB-of Hagerstown with the club member discount.
That said, this is not a guys only event – we encourage women to come out and learn more about their cars. Even if you don’t want to work on your car, a club tech session like this one is a perfect opportunity to spend quality time with other club members who share an interest in maintaining (or just talking about) Mercedes-Benz vehicles. This event is also a perfect chance for you to get answers to any questions you have about your Mercedes-Benz and its features.
Space is limited – We just 8 lifts for only a few hours, so please no lift hogging, come early to get a lift. first come first served. Please plan to finish your project by Noon!, when we need to be out of the shop.The service bay doors will open at 8 a.m. Service bays will go to those participants who are registered on a First Come, First Served basis. Demand is usually high. To give everyone a chance to get into a service bay we ask that you limit DIY work to what you can finish in three hours, or less.
The parts department will be open and offering a nice discount during the event. Be sure to call (301) 733-2301 or Toll Free 1-(866)-508-8690) at least ten (10) days in advance of the date to make sure parts you know you need will be available.
As with any event, there are a few ground rules:
- Plan to arrive early as lifts are filled on a registered attendee, first-come, first-served basis;
- Check with the parts department in advance to make sure any parts and supplies you know will be available on the day of the event;
- Learn as much as you can about your to-do list tasks before the event – a subscription to Alldata DIY can help with this;
- Make your to-do list short enough so you can complete your tasks in the time alloted;
- Bring all the tools and shop consumables you’ll need to get the work done; and. The dealership will NOT Lend tools.
- Dress appropriately (e.g. no open-toe footwear) – bring grubbies and rags, because you will get dirty!
- You are responsible for Clean up, make sure you leave the dealership cleaner than it was when you arrived.
What you get at this event:
- Access to vehicle lifts so you can work on all areas of your car like a pro;
