DIY Auto Repair in Olathe
The days are getting shorter and leaves keep falling out of the trees....
It must be time for the fourth installment of Fools With Tools.... er, Wrenches and Coffee DIY session.
Food: Coffee, bagels & donuts provided, whether you be wrenching or just visiting.
NOTE: You must bring your own tools. DIY provides the lifts, plus catch basins for oil and coolant. DIY also has tire mounting and balancing equipment (cost extra). The Club has some of the special tools required for suspension work and other maintenance on E36 and E46.
LADIES: We'll have one dedicated lift just for you! AND, even if you don't want to work on your car, we'll be doing a review of car care basics, and an oil change demonstration, beginning at 9:00.
11509 Strang Line Rd. Suite D
All club members are welcome! If you've never been to one of our DIY/Tech Sessions, it's a great place to jump into maintaining your BMW yourself. We have members with lots of experience working on our favorite cars. Start with something small like an oil change or let us know if you have something more specific you want to tackle. Even if you don't have something you need done to your BMW, stop by, say hi, and see what we're all about.
As always, we ask volunteers with experience working on our beloved Bimmers to attend and help keep things running smoothly. Please contact the registrar if you are able to volunteer.
Jobs can include things like:
* Oil changes, diff and trans fluid changes
* Brake fluid flush
* Cooling systems
* Tire swap
* Other miscellaneous preparations for the track
Make sure to order any parts you need ahead of time.
Since the shop charges by the hour those bringing cars for maintenance/repair will need to pay a small fee. To give you an idea what that might be, the highest rate the shop charges is $20/hr. The shop takes cash, check, or credit card and you'll square up with the shop directly. It's open all day and you are welcome to stay at the shop and continue working after the club event is over.
