Benedikt Alois Braun

Hello my name is

Benedikt Alois Braun

I am a trained master car technician and business economist (HWK) and your contact person for everything to do with your vehicle.

I fell in love with cars at a young age, which is why I decided to turn my hobby into a career. In August 2005 I started my training as a car mechatronics technician at a BMW service partner in Baumholder. I successfully completed this in January 2009. After my apprenticeship, I moved to Idar-Oberstein. There I worked in a car dealership and handled all service and repair work for the entire range of passenger cars. In 2010 I returned to my training company. I was employed there as a vehicle mechatronics technician/communication electronics technician. During my work, I completed my further training as a master car technician (2011), communications electronics technician (2013) and in 2014 I successfully passed my examination as a business economist at the HWK in Trier. After 7 years of work, I switched to a car dealership in Idar-Oberstein. I have been employed here as a car technician/service consultant ever since. In 2019 I supplemented my qualifications with my course to become a car service consultant.

After many years of experience in diagnostics, repair and service, the step to self-employment followed. As a part-time job, I founded my own company BL Autoservice in February 2013 in the heart of Baumholder.

My many years of experience and my enthusiasm for my work are what set me apart. I am happy to be your contact and always there for you to help you. My auto repair shop is my passion and you will receive the highest quality standards, reliable diagnoses and accurate results. When are you coming to see me?

I offer the following services

Reifenservice

Tires

Tires

Whether in summer or winter, so that you are always safe on the road with your car, you can get summer tyres, winter tyres, all-season tyres, off-road tires or motorcycle tires from all well-known tire brands from us, whether with run-flat/emergency tires or tire pressure monitoring systems. We have the right tires for every vehicle.

Tire change

When changing tires, people like to follow the tried and tested car wisdom "From Easter to October". According to this, the summer tires are fitted around Easter and then the winter tires towards the end of October.

The tires should therefore be changed twice a year. The tire profile should always be adapted to the weather conditions and ensure optimal road grip. A car's tires are the direct connection to the road and are crucial for comfort and safety while driving.

Tire mounting

During tire fitting, the tires are mechanically mounted on the rims and then electronically balanced.

Tire storage

Where to put the winter tires in the summer and where to put the summer tires in the winter? A question that many motorists ask themselves twice a year. Tire storage is not the same as tire storage. A dry, dark and cool room is necessary for the correct storage of the wheels. The rubber compound loses its strength and elasticity due to heat and light, ages faster and cracks.

No space to store tires? Tired of lugging tires?

We store your bikes the way your tires prefer: cool, dry and clean.

Bremsen

Brakes

Brakes

Whether the condition of the brake pads or the amount of brake fluid - a functioning brake system is not only relevant for your own safety on the road, but also for the safety of other road users. So that your car comes to a standstill at any time with constant use and emergency braking does not become a problem, you should check the brake pads and brake discs regularly and have them replaced if there are signs of wear. As long as your vehicle brakes properly, you often don't think about the exact functionality. The importance of this component only becomes apparent when the braking ability decreases over time.

WARNING SIGNALS, HOW TO RECOGNIZE WORN BRAKE PADS EARLY:

Not only squeaky brakes or a warning display in the instrument cluster indicate the wear of your car's brakes. There are other signs when you should visit an auto repair shop:

  • Grinding noises when braking
  • Braking distance significantly longer than usual
  • Pulsating brake pedal
  • The braking point can no longer be felt when braking
  • Car pulls to one side
  • Steering wheel vibrates when braking
  • delayed reaction of the brakes
  • Amber instead of yellow brake fluid

WHEN TO CHANGE BRAKES?

Are your brakes squeaking? This is usually a sign of worn brake pads. As with other wearing parts on your vehicle, the wear and tear of the brake system depends on the individual wear: the more kilometers you drive, the more stress your brake pads are put under. In addition to weight, transmission type and vehicle model, your driving behavior also plays a role. The more dynamic you are on the road, the higher the wear and tear. The timing of a brake pad change also depends on the quality of your brake pads. A regular check of the brake pads, preferably twice a year, is essential for the timely replacement of the brakes. Because dangerous wear with loud noise development is not always noticeable.

You can have your brakes checked by us at any time and changed if necessary.

Ölwechsel

Oil change

Oil change

The heart of your vehicle is the engine - and this needs engine oil to stay in good condition. However, it is not only the quantity that matters, but also the type and quality of the oil. Hardly anything stresses the engine of your car like the use of old or too little engine oil: The resulting increased friction inside the engine leads to more wear, higher fuel consumption and more exhaust emissions.

By regularly replacing the engine oil, you protect the engine from damage.

When to change the oil?

The individual specifications of the vehicle manufacturer apply to when an oil change is due. The respective oil change interval is determined by the mileage of the vehicle, the time of the last oil change and the quality of the engine oil used. The service booklet or the operating instructions for the car contain precise information on when the oil change is due. A due date can also be displayed in the speedometer display.

For a long engine life and less consumption, we therefore recommend a regular annual oil change.

HU/AU

HU/AU

HU/AU

Main and exhaust gas inspection

Every two years, your vehicle has to undergo the main inspection and emissions test according to §29 StVZO. Here the vehicle is checked for road safety, compliance with regulations and environmental compatibility.

Are you worried about the upcoming date for the main inspection (HU)? Not sure if your vehicle will pass the test? Forget the stress. Prepare with us for your next HU appointment!

We are happy to carry out your main inspection and exhaust gas inspection together with a recognized testing organization. First of all, we subject your vehicle to a preliminary check and check all TÜV-relevant components for their function. This means that your vehicle will be checked beforehand for defects that are usually objected to by the TÜV. If we detect defects in advance, we can repair them after consultation with you. So your vehicle is well prepared for the HU and you can sit back and relax.

You can easily make an appointment with us.

Klima

Climate

Climate

The air conditioning not only ensures a cool head on hot days and the best view. But what does air conditioning have to do with it? Regulating the temperature is the most well-known and supposedly only task of an air conditioning system, but it is far from the case. The room temperature not only affects your well-being, but also your concentration. Since unforeseen situations can happen to you at any time on the road, a fast reaction time is often crucial. A pleasant climate in the car also contributes to this. In addition, the air conditioning system together with the cabin filter ensures fresh air all year round - and thus protects allergy sufferers in particular. At the same time, your air conditioning helps to counteract damp weather and fogged windows in winter, thus ensuring a clear view.

Due to the natural loss of refrigerant and the colonization of bacteria, fungi and microorganisms, car air conditioning systems must be regularly serviced and disinfected.

Inspektion

Inspection

Inspection

Due to the mileage of your vehicle, the wear and tear of individual components is quite natural and cannot be prevented. The regular inspection of a vehicle not only ensures safety by detecting damage at an early stage and repairing it immediately, it also maintains the value of a car.

Manufacturer warranty

We carry out the inspection or review strictly according to the manufacturer's specifications and only use original quality spare parts. This includes a visual and functional check, which includes the following factors: car lights and electronics, exhaust, tires, body and interior, brakes and chassis as well as the engine compartment. In this way, your manufacturer's warranty remains fully intact.

Fahrwerk

Chassis

Chassis

Unusual noises on bad roads, unevenly worn tires, a cracking sound when the steering is turned: if the chassis shows noticeable signs of wear, it is high time for a check.

The chassis is the connecting element between the tires and the body and is therefore a fundamental part of safe driving. If the tie rod end, tie rod or axial joint are worn, there is a risk of steering difficulties or even loss of control when cornering. In particular, the joints on the chassis - such as the tie rod joint or the axial joint of the tie rod - are among the safety-relevant wear parts that are frequently affected.

Suspension springs and shock absorbers carry the entire weight of the vehicle. At the same time, they have to compensate for bumps in the road surface. Their important task: They slow down the vibrations that result from the car suspension and mass - and are therefore in continuous use. This continuous load ensures that shock absorbers gradually wear out. Then it becomes dangerous on the road: negative consequences include longer braking distances, an increased risk of aquaplaning and an increased risk of skidding in curves.

Glas

Glass

Glass

An intact windscreen is important for safety. Just a tiny pebble thrown up from the road and you've got a rockfall. Even the slightest damage to the glass can compromise stability, compromise the structure and endanger the vehicle's occupants. If a glass damage is not repaired in time, dirt and moisture can settle in the pane, clouding the view and thus becoming a traffic hazard. Not infrequently, slight temperature differences or minor shocks are enough to crack the windshield. That's why it's important to take care of a window repair or replacement quickly.

Stone Chip Repair

Gone are the days when the windshield had to be replaced after a stone chipped. Thanks to a special repair process using synthetic resin, it is now possible in many cases to remove stone chips. The stone chip repair procedure first provides for a thorough cleaning of the impact site. By creating a vacuum, the highly effective filling of the damaged area with special resin is then guaranteed. The resin is then hardened with UV light, the windscreen is freed from excess resin and thoroughly polished. Of course, only high-quality materials from well-known manufacturers are used for auto glass repairs. After that, nothing stands in the way of a safe journey – without having to replace the window.

Tip: For vehicle owners with partially comprehensive insurance, the insurance company will in most cases cover the full cost of stone chip repairs. We would be happy to support you in dealing with your insurance company.

Window replacement

If glass damage due to a stone chip cannot be repaired because the stone chip is too large or too close to the edge, we will replace the windscreen quickly and reliably. When changing discs, only discs of original quality are used. This also applies to the adhesives used. We lift the defective windshield out of the frame while protecting the paintwork and glass, ensure that no glass splinters get into the vehicle and fix the new pane firmly with high-performance adhesive. After just one hour of curing time, you can start driving straight away.

Tip: For vehicle owners with partial or fully comprehensive insurance, the costs will be covered by your insurance; possibly with deduction of a deductible. We would be happy to support you in dealing with your insurance company.

Exhaust

Exhaust

Your car's exhaust system has many important jobs. It reduces noise and environmental pollution and protects you from toxic exhaust gases. This is done by filtering out the harmful substances from the combustion gases. In addition to pollutant emissions, the exhaust system also reduces noise emissions and even fuel consumption. The visible pipe at the rear of your car is just the last piece of the exhaust system. In fact, depending on the engine, a vehicle's exhaust system consists of many different components: the exhaust manifold, the so-called downpipe, the flex pipe, the catalytic converter, the particle filter, the AdBlue system and up to three silencers. With every journey, these are subject to extreme thermal stress. Strong temperature fluctuations due to hot exhaust gases and outside temperatures, but also road salt and moisture, put a strain on the exhaust system. So it's no wonder that holes form relatively quickly, parts rust through or come loose.

We will be happy to carry out a precautionary check of the exhaust system for you.

battery service

The problem with car batteries is that they can deteriorate without showing any signs of imminent failure. You should replace a weak car battery in good time before you get stranded on the road because of a weak battery or before you can't even start driving on cold winter days. Because with a breakdown service, the costs for a car battery are usually always higher than with us.

In general, it is better to have the car battery changed by a specialist. Because some radios, alarm systems and control units have to be reinitialized after the change.

In addition, we offer you a comprehensive service in the field of automotive electronics. This includes, for example, reading out the error memory as well as repairing and maintaining start-stop systems and systematic troubleshooting and troubleshooting for all relevant electronic components.

Fehlerspeicher

Read fault memory

Read fault memory

If the electronics in your car fail or malfunctions are indicated by warning lights on the dashboard of your vehicle, it is time to read out the error memory. With the help of electrical voltage and sensors, a vehicle diagnostic system - in newer vehicles usually the on-board diagnostics (OBD) - continuously measures technical data of your car.

These and above all malfunctions or damage are saved and, if necessary, reported via the cockpit. This makes it easier for us to carry out a targeted inspection and repair of your vehicle, thereby saving you time and money.

E-Mobilität

E-mobility

E-mobility

The best news first: An electric motor requires less maintenance than an internal combustion engine. There is no longer any need for an oil change, exhaust gas check or engine air filter change. As a result, workshop visits are rarer. This also means that an electric vehicle costs up to 40% less to maintain than a diesel or petrol vehicle.

Manufacturer warranty

We carry out the inspection for electric vehicles strictly according to manufacturer specifications. The service includes all manufacturer-specific test points as well as maintenance work and makes a significant contribution to maintaining the value of your vehicle.

Timing belt

Timing belt

A correctly functioning toothed belt is essential for getting you safely from A to B. The toothed belt is a classic wearing part. Because if valves are actuated at the wrong time, the engine cannot perform at its best. In the worst case, there is even a risk of engine damage. To prevent this from happening to you, we recommend that you regularly check your car's timing belt.

The toothed belt is driven by the crankshaft and controls the camshaft. In this way, it controls the combustion process in the engine. At the same time, it reduces the environmental impact: On the one hand, it ensures lower fuel consumption due to its smooth running, which has a positive effect on CO² emissions. In addition, it can save resources in engine development. As you can see, the toothed belt is quickly underestimated.

When do you have to change a timing belt?

The manufacturer specifies when a timing belt change is due. It is advisable to strictly adhere to these change intervals in order not to endanger your driving safety. You can usually find the information from the manufacturer in the service booklet or ask us.
