Car Mechanics June 2020

Welcome to the June 2020 issue of Car Mechanics.

For our opening feature we look at why modern engines are becoming dirtier internally than before – while working out what we can do to rid them of crud. Our project Audi A4 cabriolet 1.8T needs a new front wheel bearing and the brakes require attention also. Intercooler upgrades on the MINI Cooper S from Forge Motorsport for fitment to the R53 and R56 models is shown in step-by-step pictures sequence.

With the current UK MOT system having a six-month extension from March 31st 2020, we look at what other countries are doing to check vehicle roadworthiness. A topical subject next – how to avoid coronavirus in your car… 7 steps to decontaminate your vehicle.

Finding new and used parts for the 2006-2012 Porsche Cayman. In our buying guide we look at the Mitsubishi Colt Z30 from 2002-2013. Our Back-to-Basics series looks at servicing brake discs and pads.
