Our amply equipped workshops are designed to deal with just about anything that you can throw at them! The original concept was to provide a expert Service Team to look after the preparation of our sales cars and then an Aftersales Department to deal with work created by the Arun Team at Pulborough.
However this has expanded due to popular demand and we now look after many cars, from £50,000 Classics to modest £500 runabouts. Our Clients are varied from the (ex!) Deputy Prime Minister to The Jaguar World Magazine and many even bring their cars over from the continent to have remedial works carried out.
We have Service Technicians at your disposal who specialise is all areas including welding, restoration, electrical systems including alarms and telephones, engines, gearboxes and all general service work. Whilst we are predominantly Jaguar our combined expertise allows us to work on almost anything with four wheels.
Subject to availability we can provide Loan Vehicles - please remember to ask when you book in.
An MOT is a road safety measure designed to ensure that all cars, motorcycles and other vehicles over 3 years old are properly maintained and at least once a year, are examined at an authorised MOT test station to make sure that they comply with certain important requirements of the law.
If you have a car that is more than 3 years old it will need an MOT test each year to ensure that it meets at least the minimum road safety and environmental standards. We offer an MOT facility on site and are able to carry out testing 'While You Wait' should you require. Please call for details.
We have full Bodyshop Facilities and are able to deal with all forms of:
Bumper chips and scrapes
Complete vehicle resprays/colour changes
We can also offer paintless dent removal at a fraction of respray costs.
All vehicles, no matter how well looked after, will pick up fault codes and store faults within the vehicles onboard memory. Most of these are the result of simple things, such as hitting a pothole in the road, or a fuse blowing in the fuse box and they can have a massive effect upon the way the vehicle handles and drives. For most people, especially those with the newest of vehicles, this could mean a very costly visit to a Main Dealer to have the fault checked and then rectified. Arun are able to reduce these costs and by appointment will happily scan your vehicle for fault codes whilst you wait.
Because of our unique affiliation with the Jaguar brand, our workshops are equipped with modern Jaguar diagnostic computers and Jaguar tooling and this is complimented with both Autologic and Snap On Scanners which are well recognised and highly thought of within the business. These allow us to check most cars for faults and investigate anything from check engine and ABS lights to reprogramming of keys and fobs.
We offer a vehicle air conditioning service facility at Arun. Regular use, checks and servicing of your system will avoid large bills!
You may not be aware that over 10% of air-con gas permeates from the air-con system every year, which means that it may not work as well as it should. This is why car manufacturers recommend your Air-Con system is recharged with gas and lubricant every 2 years. This service is not part of routine vehicle servicing, so if your vehicle is more than 2 years old it's probably due a recharge.
Arun are able to carry out any form of interior refurbishment to bring your car back to an 'as new' condition. From blemishes, holes and burns to full interior retrims, piping, hoods and carpets, in fact nothing is too little or too much for our Team. Leather connolising (as pictured) is an extremely cost effective method of giving your leather a revamp and is used throughout the trade. Please bring your vehicle in for a quote - prices start at £80!
Kerbed or damaged alloys? Want to change them from silver to black? Arun have the ability to repair your damaged alloy wheels including the Jaguar 20 inch BBS chrome wheel trims.
We also have full tyre and wheel balancing equipment on site and so repair times are kept to a minimum. Please try us for your tyres - you might be pleasantly suprised!
Now that you have had your vehicle MOT Tested, paintwork rectified, engine tuned and serviced, leather refurbished and kerbed wheels dealt with, maybe it is time to have your car valeted! In fact if you have had any service work carried out we will of course offer a complimentary wash and vacuum however you may choose to upgrade this to a professional valet to give that showroom finish.
For those of you who are not particularly good at maintaining this prepared finish, we offer Guardex Protection. This is a state of the art system which offers a glistening paintwork protection finish eliminating the need for any future polishing, a stain guard for fabric and carpets, a glass and mist guard and finally a leather treatment which seals the hide protecting it against stains, dirt and liquid spills.
Please telephone for details and prices.
