Wanting to change your dash to English or upgrade your firmware for those grabby brakes?

We are pleased to announce the arrival of the new Service and Report Tool (SRT). Many of our long term supporters know that this has been in the pipeline for some time. But what is it?

The SRT is our latest workshop tool designed to help our techs better service the Nissan Leaf. In the past we haven’t been able to offer our customers the ability to upgrade firmware on earlier Leaf’s on both the Brake Control Modules and On board chargers in house, but now we can.
Snow Bros Auto Electrical also offer a full range of instrument cluster English language conversions in both Nissan Leaf and Nissan e-NV200 infotainment systems, Carwings, Leaf Connect with Android Auto.

EV and Hybrid system checks and repairs

EV and hybrid cars are more specialised than conventional internal combustion engine powered cars.  A different approach is required to carry out repairs and servicing safely. Using the latest diagnostic equipment, Snow Bros will assess your EV, identifying any problems accurately. We can then correct any problems professionally and efficiently to ensure your EV is running as it should and safe on our roads.

When should I get my hybrid or EV serviced?

As with conventional vehicles, it’s recommended that you have your hybrid or EV serviced every 12 months. This ensures that everything is running as it should. Other than the lack of an diesel or petrol engine to propel the vehicle they still share alot of the components as ICE vehicles such as brake pads, brake fluid, coolant, steering and suspension, air conditioning, electric windows etc. Our specialist team at Snow Bros use diagnostics that are dedicated to hybrid and EV engines. This gives you the confidence that your EV or hybrid is certainly performing smoothly.
