As winter blankets the landscape, many might be inclined to tuck away their vehicles postpone any maintenance until the warmer months. However, contrary to common belief, winter is the opportune time to address deferred vehicle maintenance. 1. Time for Reflection: Winter often brings a slower pace, making it an ideal period for reflection and planning. Use this time to reassess any deferred maintenance, considering the potential impact on your vehicle’s performance and longevity. 2. Preparing for Challenges: The cold months presents unique challenges for vehicles, from freezing temperatures to salted roads. Addressing deferred work now ensures your vehicle is well-prepared to tackle the harsh winter conditions, reducing the risk of breakdowns during the season. 3. Enhanced Safety: Driving in the winter, demands optimal vehicle performance. Taking care of deferred maintenance, such as brake inspections, tire rotations, and fluid checks, contributes to enhanced safety on slippery roads and in adverse weather conditions. 4. Cost Savings: Addressing deferred work promptly can prevent minor issues from escalating into costly repairs. Winter maintenance is not only proactive but also cost-effective, helping you avoid potential breakdowns that may lead to more extensive damage. 5. Increased Availability: Mechanical shops often experience a lower volume of appointments during winter, providing you with increased availability and shorter wait times for deferred work. Take advantage of this period to secure convenient appointments and efficient service. 6. Optimal Performance: Ensuring your vehicle is in top condition during winter guarantees optimal performance. From battery checks to ensuring proper functioning of the heating system, addressing deferred maintenance contributes to a smooth and reliable driving experience during the colder months. 7. Peace of Mind: Knowing that your vehicle is in peak condition during winter provides peace of mind. Whether you’re embarking on a winter road trip or navigating your daily commute, the confidence that comes with well-maintained vehicles is invaluable. Conclusion: Embrace Winter as Maintenance Season In summary, winter is not a time to neglect your vehicle; it’s an opportunity to prioritise deferred vehicle maintenance and ensure your vehicle is ready to face the challenges of the season. From safety and cost savings to increased availability at service centres, embracing winter as maintenance season is a strategic decision that benefits both you and your vehicle. Don’t let the cold deter you – take advantage of the season and let us at Motor Werke optimize your vehicle’s performance so you can enjoy a worry-free winter on the road.

As winter sets in, ensuring your Tesla Model 3 is ready to face the cold becomes paramount. At Motor Werke, we’ve recently enhanced the winter driving experience for a Tesla enthusiast by replacing their Tesla Model 3’s PTC heater. Understanding The PTC Heater: The Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater is crucial in keeping your cabin warm during chilly weather. The PTC heater is designed to replace the function of a car’s heater core. Heater cores transfer heat from your engine to the cabin of your vehicle by moving air through the heater core. As Teslas are not equipped with an internal combustion engine, the PTC heater warms the air up and allows it to be circulated through to the cabin. In our latest service, we delved into the ins and outs of this heating element, how it operates, and the root cause of failure. Spotting the Signs for Replacement: Through thorough diagnostics, our skilled technicians pinpointed signs of wear and reduced performance in this Tesla Model 3’s PTC heater. Addressing these issues proactively ensures optimal heating functionality during winter drives. A Precise Repair Process: Our team executed a seamless replacement process by securely disconnecting both the low and high-voltage batteries. The interior trim panels and front passenger knee airbag assembly were carefully removed to access the failed component. Following the removal of the damaged PTC heater, we installed a new unit in the HVAC assembly, as per Tesla’s detailed repair instructions. Elevating the Winter Drive: With the new PTC heater installed, The Tesla Model 3 owner can now enjoy improved cabin heating, swift defrosting, and overall comfort during winter journeys. It’s a testament to our commitment to delivering top-notch service and ensuring our customers drive in comfort, no matter the season. EV Expertise at Your Service: Motor Werke takes pride in its proficiency in servicing electric vehicles. Our technicians are well-versed in the unique components of Tesla models, ensuring that each service, from routine maintenance to PTC heater replacements, is executed with precision and expertise. We understand the importance of a well-functioning vehicle, and ensure a seamless experience from diagnosis to completion.
