Job Description for Auto Accessories Installer

Typically, many shops specialize in one of these services, while larger automotive service centers may employ accessories specialists to work in each of these areas.Read More...
Many accessories installers work for businesses which also sell aftermarket add-ons to consumers. In these cases, the installer has a simpler job, as most of the installation work performed will be fairly routine. Specialty mechanic shops which perform installations for a variety of products and car models may require more experienced installers who are able to work creatively to help place a variety of accessories in multiple car models.
The installation work itself can be fairly complex and involve specialty mechanical work. For instance, installers who work primarily with stereos, speakers, and alarm systems will need in-depth knowledge of automotive wiring systems, as well as the ability to aesthetically match installed systems with existing car interiors. Installers who place aftermarket exhaust systems will also need the same skills as a mechanic who performs traditional muffler and exhaust repairs.
The requirements to work as an auto accessories installer vary due to the differences in the accessories themselves and the expected work required for them. For instance, installers who do window tinting need less of a technical mechanical background than those who install lighting systems or turbochargers. Those who work in more technical areas often have some tech school training or vocational education in automotive repair. Accessories installers typically work regular business hours in car repair shop environments.
