Do-It-Yourself Session at DARCARS Volvo

  • Aug 10, 2013 · 8:00 AM
  • DARCARS Volvo

The Washington Volvo Club (WVC) continues the 2013 DIY series with a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technical session at DARCARS Volvo, Rockville from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturday, August 10, 2013. Their location is 15401 Frederick Road, (On Maryland Route 355, known in other parts as Rockville Pike) Rockville, MD 20855.

DARCARS has Saturday service for their customers, and therefore WVC will have the use of a limited number of their lifts. We hope to attract a good group who will accomplish normal maintenance tasks. The DARCARS 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.

DARCARS’ 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 DARCARS 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 to DARCARS 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 must bring their own tools, and 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 are always happy to show newcomers the joys of simple maintenance activities.

Participation is on a strict pre-registration basis through WVC only; please do not contact DARCARS for this purpose. You may pre-register by completing all items on the PDF form saved in the Files section and mailing it, along with a non-refundable fee of $20, or registering online on this Meetup page and paying by PayPal. If you pay by check, then your check should be made payable to Washington Volvo Club. Please be advised that, even though we have posted this event on the Meetup calendar early, registrations for this DIY will NOT be accepted before July 10th, 2013. The registration period is July 10 to August 3, with late registration August 4-9. You will be notified of your registration status during the week before the DIY. (Please be advised that if you don’t postmark your check and preregistration form by August 3rd, and if we can still accommodate you, which we can't guarantee, then the fee will go up to $35.) Please remember that we don't allow walk-up registrations anymore, so if you want to participate, then be sure to get your registration in ASAP!

This is the only DIY at DARCARS this year. Please think of your maintenance requirements, pre-register early, and join us at this great location. WVC has set a limit on pre-registration and we will be giving preference to those who get their registrations in early.

    All went very smoothly, very good session. And as Nick demonstrated, never underestimate what you can accomplish with a blowtorch.
