Try LCH.

Else this is the workshop i usually send my ride to for servicing, electrical / mechanical repair/ replacement.

Boss is :Ah Chen @ +60127942588.
LTEN PRO
23,Jalan Permas 9/9 Bandar Permas Jaya, 81750 Masai, Johor.

If you know what spare parts needed, you can buy at below spare parts shop and get it fixed at LTEN PRO

Hup Heng Auto Parts.
No 9, Jalan Permas 4/4, Tmn Permas Jaya, 81750 Masai , Johor.


For your case, need to bring in your ride and let him test drive to see what is the problem. Usually, he will ask how long more to end COE then advise customer quick fix to "tong" till scrap car or change new ones.

Wont kena chopped!

Bearings nope.
Front bushings I remember around RM300.

Just WhatsApp ah yuan and ask for pricing.

I did rear wheel bearing when ah yuan was still at YS. He was the one who quoted me. I brought my own parts so only charge for labour. IT was reasonable. IIRC its around $30RM per wheel bearing. You can do your own calculations and determine if its reasonable. I doubt you'll be able to find such pricing in singapore.

rm30 per side is very reasonable. btw is it better to change wheel bearings in a pair? is wheel alignment needed after replacing them?

Some say just replace the one thats noisy but i had a friend who did that and several weeks later, the other side started making noise as well. Since the price is reasonable, just do it as a pair. Alignment is not required after wheel bearing change but if you have a bad alignment to start off with, might as well have it done there. Alignment should be done every 30,000km.

Went to LCH today to do the following for my Honda Fit GE6
Engine Oil, HMMF and filter brought my own. Was done within an hour.

1. Change engine oil and filter
2. Change HMMF
3. Change driver side front headlamp bulb
4. Clean throttle body
5. Rotate tires

Total: RM$185

I didn't ask for breakdown as i felt it was already very reasonable.
slang and myviowner like this.
