Getting tree sap off of your car might be challenging. You risk damaging your paint if you don't remove it properly. Unavoidably, one day a reckless tree will damage your vehicle. While you're driving along, going about your business, your windshield will suddenly be attacked with a sticky, glue-like substance that will bond to the paint. It might be difficult and time-consuming to get rid of this tree sap. Tree sap comprises three components: resin, latex, and gum. Having a luxury car is an investment, and keeping it in a perfect look and performing is the ideal pick to keep up with. That's why you need a reliable team who knows your car inside out and aims to keep it in perfect condition. This makes booking a Paintless Dent Repair Service the best choice in such a case as it removes the tree sap without causing any damage to the original paint, restoring your vehicle to its best appearance. Where is The Tree Sap Based? Removing the tree sap from your car's body depends on the area it's based. For example, if it's on the paint, removing it is entirely different than when it's on the windows. If you're facing the other option, here are a few easy ways to remove those saps! Try using a generous amount of white vinegar and letting it sit for 5 - 10 minutes. Then, wipe it and clean the area with a cotton cloth. Use a soft box-cutter blade to remove the stains gently without scratching the glass. Use Some Tips With Your Home Products! Even though this is challenging to fix, it can be somehow repaired with your home products. Cooking Oil Fresh sap can be coated in non-toxic cooking oils like coconut or canola if it is still young. Give it five minutes to sit. Apply a hot, moist rag to the top to increase penetration. Lastly, wash the area with soap and hot water. If this method doesn't work the first time, you can try and repeat the first and second steps a few times before cleansing it. Baking Soda Start by mixing baking soda with warm water to create a thick paste. Then, apply the paste to the tree sap area without harming the paint. After that, let it set for a few minutes. (5 - 10 minutes) Heat some water and pour it onto the mixture area. Then, clean it with a spotless damp rag. Be careful not to rub the mixture around to avoid damaging the paint. Hand Sanitizer As Alcohol can be an effective sap remover, you can use it slightly on minor scratches to fix the paint. Ensure you use only a little without rubbing hard, as it can remove the stain and damage the colour. Nail Polish Remover With Acetone This is the best way to combat sticky pine sap. You can follow it up with a cleaning paste of baking soda and then hot water to ensure the acetone doesn't harm or remove your car's paint. Cotton Balls This simple method can also scrub, apply, and remove the residue. Why Rely On An Expert? Even though it may be a pain to remove, there are several good reasons to take the time to clear tree sap off your car. First, if left on your paint long enough, tree sap can cause etching — tiny, permanent scratches. Etching differs from regular scratches or swirl marks because polishing can't remove them. Second, removing tree sap promptly will make it more accessible and easier to withdraw. By relying on an expert, you can ensure your car will return to its original condition soon. Professional technicians use a complex selection of branded products for each car model and type. Basically, they do whatever it takes to ensure you get the best possible results without causing further damage to your car's paint—making it the perfect idea for your car's health and expanding its lifespan.

WHICH ARE THE MOST COMMON FAILURES OF BENTLEY CARS? BENTLEY’S MOST COMMON FAILURES: All vehicles experience frequent problems, and it's essential to have an understanding of how this may be true for your Bentley as well. Although we typically associate Bentley vehicles as being impervious to damage or failure, this isn't true. While Bentleys are exceptionally designed and engineered, giving them the well-deserved reputation they have earned, they still encounter their fair share of difficulties like any other human-made machine and German Experts Service Center – Bentley specialist would like to share the most common failures which we are facing while we repair Bentley cars. Blocked plenum chamber: A plenum chamber is a pressurized housing containing a fluid (typically air) at positive pressure. One function of the plenum is to equalize pressure for more even distribution, because of irregular supply or demand. A plenum chamber can also work as an acoustic silencer device. On the off chance that you have a blocked plenum chamber, you risk water spilling into the front footwalls as well as spilling through the ventilation framework. This can inevitably harm electrical parts, which will be all-around expensive to fix. Suspension Problems: In Bentley Continental models especially, a common issue meet by German Experts technicians in the early wear or malfunction of the air suspension parts Instead of regular coil type spring under your car, the Bentley is supported by four rubber cylinders or air springs filled with air supplied by an air compressor. Age affects the rubber air springs and will cause small cracks. Once this happened, the air will begin to leak out slowly, and you will notice your Bentley car lower one side or one corner after being parked over the night. Other signs that might indicate a failure in the Bentley suspension system are: roughness when encountering bumps or road imperfections. German Experts Bentley specialist is recommending not to ignore any of these problems as they might lead to a catastrophic failure. If left unrepaired, the springs can blow-out, which will cause significant damage to the body of the car. It also can become very dangerous if it happens while driving. To prevent a suspension failure in your Bentley car, you should adhere to the periodical maintenance schedule set by the manufacturer and have your vehicle checked by experts if you feel any change while driving it Electric Window Failure: No, you presumably didn't break your window, and possibly it hasn't flipped on you presently. Would you be able to hear a murmuring sound originating from your windows when you are moving it up or down? This could be the sign that the engine will come up short, and since each engine has its very own ECU, it tends to be mind-boggling to fix. As solutions needed, the engine can't be supplanted alone, so a substitution unit is required. In German experts Service Center, we have Bentley repair solutions for any failure appeared, and electric window repair for Bentley cars is one of them. Brake Light Failure: A standard failure in Bentley cars is when the brake light fails. The brake light being referred to be situated at the focal point of the backside, over the back window. In German Experts Service Center, we have advanced technology, repair solutions, and experienced technicians specialized in Bentley car repair that will solve the problem most effectively in saving your time and money. We pride ourselves in being experts in European car Repair in UAE, and we are happy to answer questions and concerns regarding Bentley issues or Bentley repairs Please contact us or book an appointment to bring your Bentley today.

HAS YOUR CAR BEEN REPAIRED SAFELY? Get a Post-Repair Inspection, and be sure you can drive it safely! German Experts Service Center regularly inspects vehicles after repairs to check for safety, quality, and to assist our customers in the claim approval. In the course of our inspections, we've found that a high percentage of those cars haven't been repaired according to manufacturer guidelines. For more information or to speak to someone at German Experts Service Center, call us at 02 666 6328 or click here to contact us online. In this case study, our customer brought his car to us for a post-repair inspection, and we found serious safety issues with the work that had been performed on his vehicle. The front reinforcement behind the bumper, also called the impact bar because it's absorbing and distributing the shock from an accident all over the car structure, was practically bent from the middle. WHY WOULD A SHOP PERFORM SUCH AN UNSAFE REPAIR? Why would a collision repair facility ever allow this unsafe and unprofessional work to be delivered to a customer? That’s an excellent question! German Experts Service Center would never allow their customers to go back on the road in a vehicle in this condition – or in any other state where their life or even the life of the car will be under a question mark! Some shops, however, believe that their profit on a single repair is more important than the safety of their customers. They’re counting on the idea that you’ll never find out about the corners they cut, or the procedures they’ve skipped. They hope that you’ll see a car that looks “fixed” on the surface, and never think to get an inspection to make sure the structural work is right. WHERE’S THE ACCOUNTABILITY? Knowing there are a lot of safety regulations and guidelines when we talk about the production of vehicles, you will never think that no clear rules are ensuring that also the repaired cars are safe to be driven on the roads. Unfortunately, as the competition on the market is a tough one, somebody shops to receive as many possible cars from the insurance companies are skipping necessary procedures and use substandard parts to repair a vehicle after a collision. As per the Insurance Authority Board of Directors Decision No. (25) Of 2016, chapter 2, point 7, the repair work should be warranted by the repairing shop, and the Insurance Company should make sure that the vehicle is repaired correctly. Click here to learn The Unified Motor Vehicle Insurance Policy Against Third Party Liability according to Insurance Authority Board of Directors’ Decision No. (25) of 2016 HOW IS GERMAN EXPERTS SERVICE CENTER DIFFERENT? At German Experts Service Center, we work with all insurance companies; we do not rebate from following factory specifications in any of the repairs. Our top priority is always to serve the interests of our customers, and we’ll help you make sure your car is returned to the safe, structurally sound condition it was in before the accident, offering six months warranty for labor and mechanical work and no less than five years for any paintwork. That’s why we’re certified and recognized for the highest quality collision repair available. We use only genuine parts, and we always perform the necessary procedures to keep your car as safe as it was when it rolled off the factory floor. KNOW YOUR RIGHTS! If you’ve been in an accident, your insurance company is obligated to return your vehicle to pre-loss condition, and the repairing work should be warrantied! Sadly, they often try to avoid this responsibility, even when it means putting their policyholders in unsafely repaired cars. We understand that this is a challenging condition for our customers to find themselves in. Through an agreement between Watania Insurance and us, we have built a premium car insurance where we are working on behalf of our customers, assisting them through the entire claims process. Just have with you the police report and call us to pick up your car.

INFO. BMW MOST COMMON FAILURES BMW MOST COMMON FAILURES As admirers of the Bavarian Motor Works brand, we can vouch for the consistent quality of their makes and models. Yet, issues with your vehicle will dependably emerge the more it is driven, regardless. Age, mileage, and driving propensities are enormous supporters of the distance of any car; however, that is the place we come in. North Bay Bavarian has been overhauling all makes and models of BMW for a long time, and we've seen a couple of things. Appropriate support and administration aside, there are a couple of regular issues that can jump up in your BMW. BMW Engine Misfiring Engine Misfiring in BMW cars is a common symptom and can have different causes, but most known ones are coming from the injectors, ignition coil, and manifold for the six cylinders BMW engines. When an engine is misfiring, the air-fuel mixture that entered the engine will come out unburnt, and this will pass through the catalytic converter that can have up to 600 degrees temperatures and in contact with unburnt air-fuel mixture might explode. Symptoms of engine misfiring: Rough idle Rough acceleration Engine Light on Vibrations BMW Crank Position Sensor A crank position sensor monitors the position or the rotational speed of the crankshaft, and according to this information, the engine management system will control the fuel injection and other engine functions. When the crank position sensor malfunctions, your BMW car will have the following symptoms: Engine backfires Higher fuel consume Lower acceleration power If the sensor fails, the vehicle will not start anymore. BMW Transmission In BMW cars, a typical failure meet by German Experts Service Center engineers comes from the transmission, and the most common symptom is the jerking when gears are changing. Transmission Jerking mostly happens because of: the transmission clutch that slips because of wear leaks in different components of the transmission (shock absorbers) Symptoms of a malfunctioning transmission are: Transmission stuck in gear BMW transmission slipping or shifts hard Erratic shifting in one or more gears Transmission warning light on Late answer when changing gears BMW Suspension The most common problems on BMW car suspensions are coming from the: rubber gasket, bushes, and oil leaks. Symptoms of a malfunctioning BMW suspension are: Noises One corner of the car seems lower Rolling Sensation Oily Struts BMW D.M.E. (DIGITAL MOTOR ELECTRONICS) Digital Motor Electronics or Engine Control Unit controls all critical aspects of the engine. Symptoms of a damaged D.M.E.: Check Engine Light stays on after resetting. Car was jump-started on reverse polarity. Engine turning off for no reason. Water Damage or Fire Damage on the E.C. U. The apparent loss of spark. The evident failure of the injection pulse or fuel pump. Intermittent starting problems. Overheating E.C. U. BMW Air Conditioning System (A.C.) The A.C. of the BMW cars at times might get damaged, and one of the most common symptoms is when the compression may switch on for a few seconds and then shut down. If you face this, then your BMW's A.C. system has a malfunctioning ambient temperature sensor and reads a shallow temperature, automatically switching off the compressor.
LAMBORGHINI - MOST COMMON FAULTS Lamborghini Cars are the type of cars we all dream about when we're kids, and later on, we pursue our dream of getting this Super Sport car and enjoying the raw power of a V12 engine. Now, all Lamborghini models are incredibly amazing, and each model features new and more advanced options comparing with previous models. Today I will talk about one of the most common Lamborghini models and the failures that our Lamborghini specialists have met in German Experts Service Center. These failures are neither met for all Lamborghini cars, nor appear all at once, but it's good to have a clue of what to expect when purchasing a Lamborghini. The LAMBORGHINI GALLARDO model was first released in 2003, and the model has been improved till 2013 when the last Lamborghini Gallardo was produced. Some of the most common failures on Gallardos are: Clutches – When the first Gallardo models were released, the clutches were getting damaged after 5.000 to 10.000 km. Over the years, the clutches have been slightly improved. The latest E version is much improved, but failures have still been reported. E Gear System – Sluggish Shifting- hydraulic actuator may be failing. Gallardo E-gear may not have a traditional shift-lever, but it does have a reasonably conventional gearbox. A device called the hydraulic actuator does the gear shifting when the paddles at the steering wheel are pulled back. The hydraulic actuator may fail by developing an internal leak (sometimes not long after the warranty runs out). Although it rarely happens, the Hydraulic Pump and Power Steering Lights sometimes will indicate a failure. German Experts have also repaired Lamborghini with engine failures and with issues related to engine valve timing. The other model that is worth talking about is the Lamborghini Murciélago. The Lamborghini Murciélago model was first produced by Italian automotive manufacturer Lamborghini between 2001 and 2010. The successor of the Diablo and flagship of the automaker's lineup, the Murciélago was introduced as a coupé in 2001. Now, let's talk about the faults encountered by German Experts Service Center in the Murciélago models: Same as the Lamborghini Gallardo, the Murciélago has a sensitivity with clutches and the E- Gear System. Other than this and particularly for this model, our Lamborghini specialist says that the most common faults on the Murciélago model are: The return hose front nose lift system. The system runs off power steering Dexron. If this return hose leaks, then the car is pretty much undrivable. It's a good idea to replace this hose and flush the fluid. Cooling Line Failure on the passenger side occurred a problem that German Experts Lamborghini mechanics have met. When this failure occurs, the car will create a big mess leaking coolant behind the passenger door and producing a lot of smoke. Another issue for which some Lamborghini Murcielago has had been recalled is the Gas Tank, which leaks the gasoline out from the car when the tank is full. This might lead to a fire. Engine Valve Timing is another common problem in Lamborghini Murciélago. Is if there are any failures with this part, the engine might not turn over or misfires. Ticking noises can also be heard coming from the engine, and an oil leak might be found in front of the motor. Last but not least, the Lamborghini Aventador, designed to replace the old Murciélago as the new flagship model. Till 2016 Lamborghini have sold 5000 unit milestone. In German Experts Service Center, we have the satisfaction of receiving this particular model periodically. Usually, Lamborghini Aventador requires service, but some of the models have had failures after a specific time or without a proper Lamborghini periodical maintenance service. One of the most common problems with the Gallardo and Murciélago models are: clutches overheating and the gasoline tank leaking the petrol onto the exhaust system. Another problem that we meet with a few of the Lamborghini Aventador we are servicing was the transmission. Due to bad design, a transmission seal is known to cause leaks, which can ultimately cause the transmission to fail. This issue was most familiar with the 2012 model years. As for the 2012 models, we can find a stiffer suspension that seems to skip and jump at times, which can unsettle the car and cause accidents for unskilled drivers. Other technical issues can be seen with the ECU of the Aventador that sometimes will need reprogramming and to be changed. Now that we have covered the most common faults found in Lamborghini cars, met by German Experts Service Center team, we would like to let you know that buying a Lamborghini is an outstanding choice, but at the same time a costly one. So, before buying a used Lamborghini, we recommend you to bring the car to German Experts Service Center, or to any other car service center that is equipped and prepared to check and repair Lamborghini as per the factory standards for a full check-up as we offer here in German Experts Service Center.
LEARN WHAT AND HOW YOU SHOULD CHECK A CAR BEFORE BUYING IT! How to Check a Car before Buying It: Buying a car, mostly if it’s not a new one, is not an easy decision, and if it’s not appropriately checked can become a real problem. What should you look for when buying a car? Can the kilometers of the vehicle be changed? German Experts Service Center and German Experts Body Shop technicians will try to cover the main points that should be taken into consideration when purchasing a car. If you don’t feel confident enough to do it alone call us and we will do the Pre-Purchasing Inspection for you Check the Exterior To check the state of the tires and the alignment of the car you should park the car on level ground. Take some distance from the car from front and rear side and check if it looks straight. Check the Paint Check the paint condition looking for dents, scratches, or rust. None of this will affect the performance of the engine but can affect the price you pay for the car Look at the sides of the car from end to end for waviness and difference in colors– if you notice any, means that the car wasn’t painted in the right way and also indicates that the vehicle suffered a repair. Did the seller tell you anything about an accident or modification in the car? Check the Bottom Check the car’s undercarriage (underside) with a flashlight. Inspect for rust, unaligned panels, or marked difference in the condition of different sections. Check the exhaust system condition- if it’s rusty or has any damage will lead to a costly repair. Also, check for a leak on the ground that indicates the car needs repair. Check the Tires Tires are telling a lot about a used car and how it’s been driven and maintained. Check if the tires have enough tread on them to be safe. Each tire has six tread-wear indicators as in the attached picture – if the tire is too worn, the indicator will be at the same level with the tread, and the car needs tire replacement. Now, if the car is having low mileage and worn–out tires, it might indicate that the odometer is not accurate. If something doesn’t make sense, you should ask the seller why. Putting questions about the car should not harm anyone, and the seller should provide you with all the answers needed. Check The Hatch of the Car Check the condition of the trunk or hutch of the car. Lift the carpet and check for rust and also the spare tire condition. Make sure the Hatch lid is closing properly. Does it stays alone or falls on your head? The dimension of the hatch is the one that you need? Check the Mechanical Components from Under the Hood A proper check-up that will avoid any unexpected future problem on the car can be performed only by an expert, but if you choose to do it alone, you should check the following points: Engine condition: at a visual check-up, the engine compartment should look clean without signs of oil leaks or other fluids. Perform the visual check before and after you test drive the car. Pull the oil dipstick and clean it with a tissue. Reinsert it and remove it again. A right maintained car shouldn’t have a dark and dirty oil, or under the average level. A foam residue on the inside indicates a leaking gasket. With the engine turned off, check the underside of the fan belts for any visible crack or wears Check the strut tower or shock and the corners near the windshield (from the inside) for rust. Pull the transmission dipstick to check the fluid – the fluid should be pink or red. Inspect the hood if it’s opening and closing correctly and if it stays open without being held. Inspect the Interior Check the seats for tears, stains or other damage and make sure the seats can be adjusted Check the window buttons if they are working correctly, and the windows can be opened and closed. Check the A.C Turn on the air conditioning system to make sure it’s working. Turn on the temperature control and check both the heat and cold options. Turn the fan on as well on low and high speed. Let it run for a few minutes and check if any strange smells are coming from the A.C. Check the Indicator and Display Lights Check for any error alerts, and if the lighting system is all functional. Don’t hesitate to test all the lights and signals, inside and outside the car. Do the same with the wipers and cigarette lighter. Test Drive the Car Take your time in the drive, testing the car, and listen carefully if there are any noises or trepidations while driving. Drive the car at different speeds to see how it feels. At first, drive the car down a flat road at 40-50 km/h, taking slightly and carefully your hands from the steering wheel. If the car is pulling right or left, it might just need an alignment or could indicate a bigger problem. After this, drive the car at about 100-110 km/h. If the vehicle wobbles, the tires might be out of balance. Test the car at 72 km/h, 89 km/h, 105 km/h, and 121 km/h and look if there is any trepidation or clucking noise or strange sound. If there is any, it might indicate wear at the direction of mechanical parts or uneven wear the front tires. Check the brakes Drive the car at 50-70 km/h and press the brake hard enough to decelerate fast but not enough to stop the vehicle. It shouldn’t be any vibration or noise from the brake pedal. If the brakes are pulsating, indicate the need for having the rotors resurfaced or replaced and new pads installed. The car should be stable when you press the brakes. If it has any stability deviation might be because of a lousy caliper deviation or worn steering components. Check the Car History Report Ideally would be that the owner of the car kept a record of the repairings and services performed on the vehicle along the time. Are situations when cars are sold because of past accidents or the periodical maintenance haven’t been done on time. Let an EXPERT Check the Car! Book Now a Vehicle Pre-Inspection and save yourself from a costly repairing! You are about to make a long term and costly investment that is closely related to your comfort and not the least your safety.
