thanks bro. but for i see usually shop is at kl. you can get them to ship to singapore?
No worries, yup, can contact them to ask for shipping but will have to pay first to their bank account. Best to go to the bank ATM and do cash deposit and send them the photo of the transfer slip cos it's immediate. Background check the shop before making and transfer though. I usually ship to JB straight to the workshop to do and I check with the workshop if it's ok. Cheaper to ship to JB also, only like RM20 for not too heavy box, don't know their POSLaju thresholds though.

Check Engine light comes on. First thing you do is to find out the trouble code. That would give you an idea where to start. Askany reputable workshop to scan your car.

Can see this list-
https://docs.google.com/document/u/2...n9O5uDB1HHtpw/

I did my wheel bearing for my civic last time at TS Motor, very competitive price and quality workmanship. Check engine light they also can check error codes. I'm surprised Jet like that.. His reputation quite solid for Hondas but I never went to him cos too ex and my car didn't have any complicated problems.

Find another reputable SG workshop if you cannot tahan the check light on. Esle if the car still can tong to JB, then drive in. Refer to the list done by Hellhunter.
Carlick is popular here.
I always go to workshop in Permas Jaya, nearer to me via woodlands.

Field Report on Car-click

When car-click yesterday at 2pm after stay-cation at holiday villa on Saturday.

Upon reaching told ah hong the things I brought to change and he proceeded with it.

Labor as per below

- Change EO with filter
- Change ATF oil with Filter
- Change front bearing one side
- change air and aircon filter
- Install Front lower 4 pt Strut Bar and Rear Top 2 pt Strut Bar (Ultra Racing)
- Install Lower Spring (Triple S)


Total time taken is 4 hours for this job, same thing ah hong single handled everything except for certain job that require 2 person to work so ah yuan help him out.

Ah Hong highlighted to me my rear absorber one side is leaking when he changing the spring. This pair of rear absorber was change and brought from LCH bro in july 2018.

I told him so fast leak liao ah? he say yah lo.

while waiting at the shop, ah yuan when out for while then came back and offered my wife and me ice lemon tea bottled. accepted the offer, first time ah yuan so good treat me drink. say very hot ask me go inside aircon sit better.

yesterday not much car only those doing major job.

when mid way doing i ask hong, roughly how much the labor work as thinking if want change absorber. he told me 450 RM for labor.

I was shocked sia, so told him do first later breakdown the cost for me.

same thing after done, ah hong drove out my car alone for test drive, then came back ask me to join him 2nd round. told me my rear absorber both weak after change to lower spring more obvious liao.

haha, very shoik when people drive your car and u sit in passenger seat like a box. so ah hong drove 2 rounds and going a few humps to test out the spring. just in case got sound or etc ask me I want remove a not.

then return ws he did alignment then went to test drive again one more time.

so far no sound just weak absorber

then after done, about to pay he wrote down as per below then say ah yuan give me some discount. in the end never pay 450RM.

Wah, OEM part? Failing in under a year is way too premature... unless you clock some insane mileage in that time or track use?

Depends on your car model bro.
Best is search in Carousell for secondhand type.
Those people dekit from their ride.

Can get it 50% cheaper compare to brand new ones.

I have 4 bars installed in my ride, all second hand ones.

This kind of bar no need buy new also.

For safety bars, behind is more important, can try get rear TOP and bottom.
