Repair instructions and automotive spare parts at Clonck: Everything for car enthusiasts in one app

“Pascal is an enthusiastic car mechanic,” says Joshua Worger about his co-founder Pascal Walter. “In his spare time, he tinkers with his car, makes repairs, puts in spare parts.” Two years ago, when they took a ride together in the FlixBus, Pascal told them about his hobby, his passion. And also about the problems that screwdrivers have: Repair instructions are available either as a book and only with a lot of luck, suitable for your own vehicle, or in Internet forums and YouTube videos – including the danger of making your beloved car even more in need of repair with the half knowledge provided.
