Unlock the Necessary Upgrades and Workbenches
Before repairing parts in Car Mechanic Simulator, you must unlock the Work Bench, Body Repair Station, and Brake Lathe upgrades.
You also need to unlock Renovator upgrades to repair certain parts.
After you unlock the Work Bench and Body Repair Station, you can start repairing parts you have taken off your cars.
Use the Repair Table to repair body parts, Workbench for reconditioning mechanical parts, and the Brake Lathe to repair braking components. To use these repair benches, simply walk up to them and left-click/select them to see a list of parts eligible for repairs.
How to Repair Parts
- Click on the part you want to repair.
2. Aim for the Green bar to complete the repair. If you land on the Red bars, the repair will fail.
3. If you land on any Green bars, your chosen part will improve to a maximum of 50% condition.
Note that repairs do not have a 100% success rate. Any part that fails the repair process will be destroyed.
Repairs will also only restore car parts to a certain condition. For example, the Water Pump below has a current condition of 37% but can improve to 51% after the repair. However, the part will drop to 18% when the repair process fails.
Lastly, not all parts can be repaired. You can only repair parts that show up in the parts list when you access any of the work benches.
If you do not have any parts the selected workbench can repair, the game will send a notification saying, “You don’t have the necessary parts.”
Is it worth repairing parts in Car Mechanic Simulator?
Repairing parts in Car Mechanic Simulator is worth it. Repairs allow you to fix a previously unusable part for very little money.
However, you shouldn’t force a repair on parts in good working condition. These parts can still be used in future jobs, so it is best that you save them for other projects instead. You’re also better off selling parts you can’t repair in your workshop.
Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 tries to give its players the most realistic car restoration and repair shop experience. The game even goes as far as introducing a by-part repair feature to rehabilitate parts back into working condition.
