Mechanic workshop / Atelier mecanique

  • This location is shown only to members

Hey all! My name's Maud, I work as a car mechanic and i've got an equipped location, where i invite you to learn usefull tricks about your car through a basic mechanical class. I'll show and explain in french the different fluids and how to check their levels, as well as safely putting on a spare tire. I'd be glad to do that with small groups of people (4 to 6) so that we can all talk and hear eachother and also to get every one to DO the operation once.
This class is usually specificly for women, as guys tend to know all that, but everybody' s welcome for this special french edition!
Because i'm really happy with the idea to do that in french, i would just ask for a participation of $10 each, as it's hard to set a price by the hour as the class time will vary depending on how many people will be attending. I guess it will be something between an hour and a half to a couple hours; also depending on how much you guys wanna learn, and i'm open to answer as many questions as you want! I'll provide rubber gloves and "heavy duty soap", and would recommend not to wear white clothes this day,nor flip flops! ;-)
I'm totally fine to do that on a saturday for instance if that's the most convenient for most of you, but i'm flexible and can arrange another time (week day evening, or whenever).
I invite those who are interested to let me know when it'd be good for them and i'm sure we'll figure out a spot that works for all!
Thanks to get in touch and let me know what you think!

    C'est magnifique! Merci beaucoup, Maud. J'ai appris plusieurs techniques importants de voiture et dans la même temps je pratique la langue français. J’espère vous rencontrer bientôt.

    Salut a tous! And thanks for your interest!
    Je propose une 1ère session samedi 28 avril a 2pm; Thanks to let me know who can make it as we have to organize small groups of 5 or 6 people, and i'll probably do other classes on the next saturdays. For those who can't come on saturdays, we can also set up an evening session on a week day for instance.
    J'espere vous voir bientot!

    Salut Jean-François! No problem! I'd love to show you that!
    We'll do it together for the 1st oil change; at the second one maybe you'll still have couple of question; and i'm sure you'll do it by yourself at the 3rd time! Tu verras, c'est pas si compliqué! J'ai fais ça pendant 6 ans en France: working with the owner of the vehicle.
    You can email me at [masked] to give me the info of your pick-up and when is the oil change due for and we'll set up something!
    A bientot!

    Salut Maud

    I am interested in how to do your own oil & filter change on a pick-up truck. I've been told it's different on a pick-up et je suis absolument nul en mecanique. Est-ce-que tu pourrais m'apprendre a'l faire? Merci d'avance.

    Allez ...au plaisir!!!
