Motor mechanics maintain and repair motorcars, buses, trucks and other vehicles. They receive information regarding the faults of the vehicle from owners.
They take the vehicle for a test drive and use electronic equipment to identify, confirm and locate the problem. After determining the cause of the problem they prepare a quotation for cost of repair.
Motor mechanics may take out broken or damaged parts of vehicles, order new parts, or alternatively, repair or replace the broken or damaged parts. Where necessary they will adjust brakes; replace shock absorbers; tighten bolts; align wheels; solder leaks in the radiator; replace oil, oil filters and air filters; and adjust lights, heaters, mirrors and windscreen wipers.
