Aston Martin V8 Vantage Repair

This weekend we undertook a quick repair on this beautiful Aston Martin V8 Vantage. The car was brought to us with a loose roll bar cover situated in the leather dome behind the drivers seat, the customer also told us that he could hear a rattling when he folds and puts up the electric roof.

When we had the car on site we immediately set to removing the cover to see what was going on underneath, once we had located all the relevant screws holding the cover in place we removed it to discover that a couple of the retaining screws that hold the electable part of the cover (The bit that actually allows the roll bars to be deployed) were missing. After much fishing around inside the lid with a magnet we managed to recover the screws and refit the cover in place properly.

We quickly put everything back together again and gave the car a quick clean to ensure the owner would be extra happy when he came to collect the vehicle a bit later that morning.

The customer was over the moon about both the time it had taken and the cost as it seems we are somewhat less expensive than an Aston Martin dealership.
