Wheels & Tyres

We stock a range of tyres from some of Australia’s most trusted suppliers, for all makes and models of passenger cars, light commercial vehicles and 4x4s, as well as light trucks up to 3 tonnes.

We can also offer customers fitting, balancing and alignment of their new tyres, ensuring they get the most value for money from their new set of rubber as possible.

Logbook Servicing

With most new vehicles, the warranty that comes with your purchase protects you from certain unexpected expenses stemming from manufacturer faults. To make sure your warranty lasts as long as possible, it’s expected that you bring the vehicle to a reputable mechanic for regularly scheduled servicing.

We can offer logbook servicing for all makes and models of petrol, diesel, LPG, electric and hybrid vehicles, forewarning you of developing faults in your vehicle and letting you drive away with the peace of mind of an intact warranty.

Vehicle Inspections

Before selling, trading or transferring ownership of your vehicle, it first has to undergo a roadworthy inspection, to ensure that it can meet the rigours of Victoria’s roads.

Claredale Motors is a VicRoads licensed vehicle tester, authorising us to conduct roadworthy inspections on all makes and models of light vehicles, and certify a vehicle as roadworthy. We can also conduct pre-purchase inspections, to ensure that you get your money’s worth before buying your next used car.

Steering & Suspension

Most handling and ride comfort problems on the road can be traced back to issues with parts in your steering and suspension systems. Issues in these areas can drastically affect the way your vehicle behaves on the road, from body roll when going around corners to grip and responsiveness behind the steering wheel.

We offer a comprehensive range of services to correct handling and ride comfort issues, from replacement car springs, shock absorbers and bushing to servicing and repairs of your vehicle’s steering systems. We can also conduct wheel balancing and alignments, to minimise tyre wear and ensure your vehicle grips the road below.

Exhaust Repairs

Your exhaust is responsible for pulling spent engine fumes away from your vehicle’s engine bay and cabin, ensuring your engine has the clean air it needs to operate cleanly and efficiently, not to mention ensuring you and your passengers can breathe easily on the road.

We can offer customers repairs for their existing exhaust solution, from stock model mufflers to custom headers and extractors. We can also replace spent filters to ensure clean air flow through your engine bay.

Clutch & Transmission

If you’re having trouble shifting gears or staying in gear, or experience strange noises and smells from underneath the car, the likely cause is an issue with your vehicle’s transmission. Problems with your vehicle’s transmission can quickly deteriorate into serious mechanical problems that affect your vehicle’s performance.

We provide a range of services for your vehicle’s drivetrain, from clutch repairs to manual and automatic transmission servicing. We can also conduct transmission fluid changes, to keep everything ticking over smoothly and without issue.

Radiators & Cooling Systems

Keeping the temperature of your engine bay within your engine’s optimal operating range is essential to maintaining your engine’s good health, and helps it work more efficiently. On the other hand, an overheating engine can spell disaster for your vehicle, potentially resulting in a catastrophic breakdown. If you think your vehicle might be overheating, you should either pull over immediately or drive very carefully to Claredale Motors for a check of your cooling system.

We offer customers a host of services and repairs for your cooling system, from leak checks to replacement of faulty hosing, seals or radiator units, as well as repair damaged head gaskets. We’ll also conduct a coolant flush, to dislodge any remaining blockages in your vehicle’s cooling system and get it working properly again.

Air Conditioning

Particularly in Australia’s summer months, having an air conditioning system ready to keep you and your passengers cool on the road is vital to driver and passenger comfort. Often your air conditioning system can go neglected, however; most of the damage a system suffers is caused not by wear and tear but by disuse through the cooler months, causing cracks and leaks in your system’s hosing.

We’ll get your aircon back in working order, from replacing cracked and leaking hosing to repairing air conditioning units and compressors. We’ll also re-gas your system with the refrigerants it needs to keep your vehicle cool all summer long.

Brake Repairs

Your vehicle’s brakes are arguably your vehicle’s most important safety feature, in some cases making the difference between an emergency stop and a minor bump, and a heavy accident and an expensive trip to the panel beaters. Your brakes will also suffer wear and tear more quickly than most areas of your vehicle, particularly with the stop-and-start nature of driving in an urban area like Dandenong.

We can provide a range of replacement parts for your vehicle’s brake systems, including new brake pads, discs, and drums for heavier vehicles. We can also machine new parts in-house to best suit your vehicle, replace cracked and worn brake hydraulic hosing, and restore the surface of your existing brake discs to get that extra bit of value from your parts.

Auto Electrical

With the ever-evolving state of automotive electrical systems, it takes only the most dedicated of auto electricians and workshops to keep pace and ensure they can help drivers of all vehicles, new and old.

We can provide testing and replacement for faulty auto electrical components, from batteries to alternators and starter motors. We can also provide and install new audio, lighting and power solutions, on top of a range of additional onboard accessories.
