“I had an issue where there was no power going to my headlights.
They were new bulbs and fuses were good, so was told by other mechanics it was an electrical problem so wanted a diagnostic check (with the hope it was a minor thing that could be sorted).

I chose ClickMechanic because from reading their website, it seemed a lot of the jobs could possibly be sorted at the roadside and at a time to suit.

I wrote in the note section the reason for the test was to sort my headlights out, but as it happened, a diagnostic check would not pick up a fault like that. My engine management light was on and at least the test gave them codes, but for me, I was disappointed because it appeared neither ClickMechanic or the mechanic themselves read the notes as to why I wanted the test. I feel I paid over the odds (£79) for a diagnostic check.

I wasn't told the test won't pick up the headlight issue until the test was run, so would have been better for me if the notes were read and I was told before. But, the mechanics were super friendly and had a look at the lights and fuses for me, and did work out there is power going to them.

Maybe I took a gamble, and it didn't pay off

If you have an electrical issue, I won't use ClickMechanic because you would pay more for a diagnostic check than in some places, would likely be told to take it to an auto electrician anyway who would charge you again to run their test. Save money and just take it to an auto electrician, or as I did, got fed up of chasing one and booked it with the main dealer where I know I will pay a bit more but at least the job will get done in the end.

ClickMechanic would be good options for basic things like tyres and brakes etc, that can be done at the road side.

Again, the mechanics were top blokes, this is not a dig at them, I just wished the notes were read before hand and I could have had the diagnostic check done for a bit cheaper elsewhere.”

Frequently asked questions about diagnostic inspections in Wales

Read our answers to questions about diagnostic inspection costs, symptoms and more.

What does a diagnostic check in Wales involve?

This very much depends on what the issue is, how frequently it occurs and also the location of the suspected problem. A mechanic will be able to go through the symptoms, evaluate the potential causes and reduce the likely culprit down enough to identify the culprit.

Once they have located the cause, if it is something that can be fixed there and then without the requirement of additional time and parts (and in most cases, this is the outcome), they will resolve it for you.

If the rectification requires parts and a return visit, the mechanic will provide you with a no obligation quite for the work and if you wish to proceed, they will arrange return visit with you.

How long does it take to do a diagnostic on a car?

A diagnostic inspection usually takes under 1 hour. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

Do Wales mechanics make house calls?

Yes, a mobile mechanic can call at your house and can inspect the car and diagnose a problem. If there is a minor issue the mechanic will endeavour to carry out any small fixes in the labour time quoted initially (the price of the inspection does not include any additional parts that may be necessary to fix the problem). Should there be any bigger problems the mechanic will provide you with a quote for the work and parts necessary to repair the problem.

How much should a diagnostic check in Wales cost?

Cost for a diagnostic check is on average £65. Ultimately the cost of a diagnostic inspection depends on your car, location and problem on the car. Find out what you could save by having a diagnostic inspection carried out by ClickMechanic by selecting your car and location at the top of this page to get a quote

Should I use a mobile mechanic in Wales?

Yes, a mobile mechanic is able to help with most repair or diagnostics work on a car. A mobile mechanic carries out repairs on vehicles at a location chosen by you (provided it is safe to work at). You would have the convenience of the mechanic coming to you, instead of having the hassle of taking your vehicle to a garage. Mobile mechanics are able to carry out most repairs this way.

The mechanics on our network are able to ‘Jack-up’ your vehicle to access the vehicle from underneath. Providing there is sufficient space around the vehicle, this won't cause any problems.

What can a car diagnostic test tell me?

A car diagnostic test can tell you if there are any problems with your car's engine, transmission, exhaust system, or other major components. For example, it can reveal whether the car has any faults, such as a faulty oxygen sensor or a misfire in the engine.

Is a car diagnostic free in Wales?

You may find some garages advertising that a diagnostic is 'free' but there is usually a hidden fee attached to it. This is because diagnostic tools are expensive and the job takes about an hour or so to complete.

To avoid paying any "hidden" fees, you can book with ClickMechanic which will provide an upfront price for a car diagnostic inspection.

What does it mean if a warning light comes on?

Cars can have a range of warning lights on the dashboard - if it's red, it's a serious and dangerous problem and you should stop driving as soon as it is safe to do so. Yellow or orange generally means something is wrong, to be careful and get it checked as soon as possible.

The warning light symbol that illuminates will usually indicate what component is affected. A full list of warning light symbols and what they mean will be found in the owner's manual or vehicle handbook.

Can Wales garages offer home collection and delivery for diagnostic inspection?

Yes, many garages in Wales are able to offer collection and delivery for a diagnostic inspection. With ClickMechanic collection & delivery is free if your vehicle is drivable. Once booked a mechanic will pick up the vehicle on the day and time of your choice, do the work, and return the vehicle at a time convenient to you. Simply enter your vehicle registration number and postcode to get an upfront price for a diagnostic inspection in Wales.

Can Wales mobile mechanics do diagnostic inspection at my home or office?

Yes, Wales mobile mechanics can do a diagnostic inspection at your home or office, provided there is a safe and sufficient space to conduct the repair or replacement. With ClickMechanic, once booked for a date and time of your choice, your booking will be offered to vetted mobile mechanics in your area.
