Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with an extended warranty that covers the cost of mechanical parts failures.
This warranty, however, is voided if the vehicle is not regularly serviced by a certified mechanic. The mechanic then records the servicing in the vehicle’s logbook and stamps it.
Here at C&D Wickham we are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for:
- Petrol passenger vehicles
- Light commercial vehicles

When you sell or give away a vehicle, or want to take a vehicle out onto the road after a long time of disuse, the NSW government requires you to ensure that it qualifies for a Safety Certificate. Safety Certificates, issued by licensed testers, guarantee that the vehicle meets the legal minimum standards to be safely driven on the roads of NSW.
If you’re thinking of buying a vehicle, we would recommend a pre-purchase inspection. This thorough inspection ensures that you know exactly what you’re buying, and can even provide you with some negotiating power when it comes to price discussions.
We are a certified tester for Safety Certificates for both passenger vehicles and light commercial vehicles up to 4.5 tonnes, and we are happy to perform pre-purchase inspections as well. If you need either, get in touch today!Click HERE
Steering & Suspension
The steering and suspension is important for both ride comfort and control. Faults can cause body lean through corners, as well as play in the steering wheel.
Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road, so a well maintained suspension reduces your stopping distance.
Here at C&D Wickham we can provide the following steering & suspension repairs or replacement parts:
- Shock absorbers and coil springs
- Bushing replacement
- Power steering
- Sway bars and torsion rods
- Wheel alignments

Clutch & Transmission
Responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheel axles, the driveshaft is comprised of some of the most intricate and precise pieces of machinery in your vehicle.
Due to their sophisticated nature, any faults or flaws in the driveshaft can quickly escalate into some of the most damaging flaws and costly repairs.
If you’ve noticed a grinding or clunking noise when changing gears, or a burning smell and fluid leaking from the engine bay, you may have a problem with your vehicle’s driveshaft.
Here at C&D Wickham we can repair:
- Clutch repairs and replacement
- Automatic and manual gearbox repairs
- Differential repairs

Flaws in your cooling system not only drastically reduces fuel efficiency, but also engine lifespan, as overheating and leaking coolant damages the head gasket, cylinders and pistons. If your thermostat has failed this could be happening without your knowledge.
C&D Wickham can help you with:
- Radiator/heater unit repair and replacement
- Gasket head replacement
- Coolant flush and leak check
- Thermostat check and replacement
