Car Mechanic Simulator VR – Beginner Tips

Useful Tips for Newcomers

Items falling out while moving: If you are using teleportation as your movement option, be aware that it is an instantaneous movement from points A to B. If there are any obstacles in the way, such as barrels or cars, there may be a collision with the held object, causing it to drop. Try to move in the clear path. You can always change the option of movement from teleportation to normal.

Can’t put wheels back on vehicle: Make sure you balance the wheels after replacing tires and rims. You can use the wheel balancing device located nearby to do this.

How to move the car and use the lift: In the first mission, you need to move the car and lift it so you can work on it. To move the car, walk up to it and use the pie menu (point the laser on the car and press the grab button). Choose the option to move the car. Once the car is on the jack, go to the switch and turn on the power. Use the up/down buttons to raise or lower the car.

Can’t reach certain parts with your hand: If you are having trouble reaching certain parts with your hand, try using the laser from a distance. You can turn on the laser by pressing the knob on the controller. Then press the trigger “to call” part to you. Try to catch them on a flight.

Left-handed players: Unfortunately, there is no option to swap controllers for left-handed players.

The game runs slowly/lags: Check if you meet the minimum requirements for the game, and make sure your VR hardware is connected correctly (such as AirLink, Steam VR, or Oculus App). Devs suggest that Oculus players play through Oculus software instead of Steam VR. 

Disappearing plates and windshields: This is not a bug, that is a feature. you can mount it again, just use the pie menu and select mounting mode. Then, ghosts of all missing parts should appear. now use the laser (activated by pressing analog) aim it on the right part, press the trigger, and hold it for 3 sec. Devs made it that way because the glass and the plate were hard to spot on the ground (transparent glass etc.)

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.


  1. if you visibly lose a part, your inventory has it. When you in ADD mode, things come from the inventory.

  2. Don’t Drop anything small or thin (belts) under or near the car. the car won’t go down until its clear. small things are hard to see or pick up.
