There is nothing better than feeling a cool, fresh breeze on a hot day, while sitting in traffic or taking a long drive. However, many people are subjected to driving through the midday heat with windows rolled down, praying for a gentle, cool breeze to come their way. This often happens, because air conditioning systems in vehicles run out of gas or stop working as a result of broken components. At selected ACD workshops, our trained technicians offer air conditioning repair services as well as re-gassing of air conditioning units, for a wide variety of automotive air conditioning systems.


ACD offers auto electrical repair and maintenance at selected workshops around the country. A dead battery, starter or alternator could all be symptoms that your vehicle’s electrical system is problematic. The electrical system in a vehicle operates with a wide range of components including the wiring and circuits, charging and starting system, mirrors and windows, lights and so much more. Our technicians are trained and qualified for a variety of your auto electrical needs. We use advanced electrical diagnostic equipment to locate and fix your problem and get your car back on the road. This service is available at selected workshops.


Your vehicle’s brakes are a critical safety item and the regular maintenance thereof is non-negotiable.

The increased use of electronic components, sensors and ECU’s (“Computers” as they are commonly called) within vehicle electrical systems, has prompted the computer aided diagnosis of faults and errors. Most modern vehicles are equipped with ODB II diagnostic adapters and warning indicators on the dashboard, to indicate when a component is defective. We use state of the art diagnostic equipment and experience to assess what has gone wrong. Our diagnostic teams are well- trained, and we constantly upgrade our equipment to ensure that we can solve problems quickly and efficiently.


The drive train connects your vehicle’s engine to the wheels and supplies the power to move forward. These components are subject to excessive forces as modern cars have increased power and torque which causes component failures due to wear & tear.

Motor Lubrication Products | Motor Oil Products

Engine oil and lubrication additives have become more sophisticated in their design and they not only help with lubricating of an engine, but they now also work in assisting with a vehicle’s road performance. Because your engine is made up of a complex system of moving parts, this tends to cause a lot of friction and wear and tear to the engine. By taking care of your engine with the right motor oils and lubricants you help reduce the adverse effects that this would have on the engine.


Suspension components are there to keep you firmly on the road. Damage from potholes and poor road surfaces as well as normal wear & tear may cause suspension failure due to the weight of the vehicle and the constant state of motion. Here are some of the related services we offer:
