    Thumbs Down Illegal to work on your own car in Sacramento County

    “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain

    This is not uncommon around parts in Orange County as well.

    Same in Israel, and Brake part replacement is even a bigger no-no since it's safety equipment

    Eh, I've seen cars basically disassembled in the AutoZone parking lot when I lived in the Bronx, NYC. And everything is illegal in NYC.

    My friend has rebuilt engines in his garage, put other cars up on jack stands to work on his engine, transmission, etc., in his driveway, in NJ. Everything is also illegal in NJ.

    I doubt PD is going to come by and enforce such petty nonsense (work under the hood, whatever) unless people start complaining. That's when they come by for petty stuff... people call on you and they get forced to act, and stuck being the "bad guys."

    I'd say no matter what the fix/repair, if you have to leave your car disassembled outside more than one night (say begin work Saturday morning, and finished Sunday afternoon), either ensure it's in the garage or take it to a mechanic's shop. Or you need a good amount of property for privacy.

    Seems a little bit excessive - and while I can see why you may want to regulate how people work on some of the newer models (with computers and auto-driving technology and cameras and all sorts of other stuff that's probably pretty risky to work on without the correct - and proprietary - knowledge and tools), it seems ridiculous to sweep classics, and other older cars into that fold.

    I'm sure garages and dealerships are pretty pleased with this, though.
