The Bridge Classic Cars van, our 2005 Mercedes Vito has been with technician Neil undergoing some maintenance work.
Neil looked at the suspension and aux belt of our longstanding workhorse!
The Bridge Classic Cars van – our 2005 Mercedes Vito has been having a check-up with technician Jonn.
He stripped, cleaned, and adjusted the handbrake. He then de-rusted all of the brake discs
The tyres were checked and inflated and the wheels were refitted and torqued up.
Although the technicians who work in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop normally spend their days restoring classic cars, every now and again, one of our own vehicles needs some attention.
Recently Jonn spent some time investigating why our 2005 Mercedes Vito van was running poorly and had the glow plug light illuminated.
After visually inspecting the injectors and wiring, Jonn plugged in the diagnostic computer in and found 63 codes stored across all systems. These were cleared before he rechecked the van and carried out live data readings for various engine components and operations.
More work is needed to get our van fully operational again but, luckily, we have other vehicles we can use in the meantime.
