The Washington Volvo Club (WVC) continues the 2014 DIY series with a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technical session at Annapolis Volvo in Annapolis, MD from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturday, October 18, 2014. Their location is 333 Buschs Frontage Rd (Route 50 East towards Bay Bridge, take exit 29A: Buschs Frontage Rd/MD-179, St. Margaret’s Road), Annapolis, MD 21409.
Annapolis Volvo (AV) has Saturday service for their customers, and therefore WVC will have the use of a limited number of of their lifts. We hope to attract a good group who will accomplish normal maintenance tasks. The AV Service Manager will be on hand to answer our questions and give us guidance as we work on our own Volvos with our own tools. The technicians are NOT there to fix your car. They offer guidance only.
AV’s parts department will be open during the DIY session, and WVC requires you to use it for the parts you need during the session. Remember that AV grants a generous discount on genuine Volvo parts to all WVC members showing a current membership card. It’s a good idea to contact their parts department at least a week in advance of the DIY session, to ensure that they’ll have all the parts you’ll need, and/or to allow for any parts that have to be special ordered to be delivered in time for the DIY.
This DIY is not intended for major repairs that cannot be completed within the allocated time period. All participants in this event are expected to bring their own tools, and to do their own work. We encourage our Members who are not yet on the lifts to help out when an extra pair of hands is needed, and we’re always happy to show newcomers the joys of simple maintenance activities.
Participation is on a strict preregistration basis through WVC only; please do not contact Annapolis Volvo for this purpose. You may pre-register by completing all items on the form in the files section and mailing it, along with a non-refundable fee of $40 (which includes lunch and a gift card for the tech on duty), or pay via PayPal using the RSVP link on this page. The registration period is September 17 to October 11, with late registration the week after. Your check should be made payable to Washington Volvo Club. You will be notified of your registration status during the week before the DIY. (Please note that if your payment isn't received online or postmarked by October 11th, and if we can accommodate you, which we can't guarantee, then the late registration fee is $50. Please also keep in mind that WVC doesn't allow walk-up registrations at DIYs anymore, so if you want to participate, be sure to get your registrations in ASAP!)
This is the second of two DIYs at Annapolis this year. Please think of your maintenance requirements, preregister early, and join us at this great location. WVC has set a limit on preregistration and we will be giving preference to those who get their registrations in early.
